rudyy:
I have totally forgotten how to do this maneuver.  So how is the input like to keep the kite flat spinning multiple times?

Try with an older skool pitch stable kite in very light to zero wind.

I know this is the worst answer in the world, but you fly over head and just make it start spinning. Theres no real secrets to it. 

The one thing that will help a lot, especially if it's more windy, is to tend to the kite and help it along if it needs it. Move down wind with the kite.

Just keep trying, you'll get it. Sorry for being of little help.

+1 on using old skool

THe easy and beauty of this tricks is kite dependent.

I start this trick like I'm entering into a 540, high up, then just let it spin down while monitoring the slack, and giving input if needed to keep it spinning. I use a Prism Ozone & my PBSK UL kites when I attempt this, haven't had much success with newer kites.
