Correction, I did "pop" a 540 at the end of that 130ish flat spin sequence.  I haven't watched that video for quite a while and forgot about the traditional 540 pop.  You can see both lines go all slack.  With limited altitude sometimes you've got to pop a quick spin to get it around in time.

I think the main reason I fly the TrickTail UL is for the 540's and Pinwheels.

John,
Thanks for your reply, you can never tell from the watching the videos the subtleties between different tricks. Unless you know what to look for. I never looked for slack in the lines, but I will now. I've gotten free-falling pinwheels before, but not much luck recovering them. I filmed myself working with low winds a few months ago. Low winds are rare where I fly, but once in a while I get to work with the Ozone...

There's alot of walking downwind to gain ground.
Thanks again.

Steve...
540s to tip stand looks great ! I have to try that... Also, a 540 viewed from below is an angle that says alot about the trick. 540s and axels do look great with the TT. I hope they really do start making those again.

Steve,  nice flying, looks great.  The TT is king of flat spins.

Rob, looks like you've got the light wind flying figure out.  A little more time and I'm sure you'll have multiple axes down. Those down wind glides are nice and slow.
