For a YO-YO the kite is rotated backwards on the pitch axis 360° so that the lines become fully wrapped around it. No other manoeuvres may be performed while the kite is rolled up. Unrolling is in the same direction and axis. Between roll and unroll a vertical line of flight is allowed.

Key elements:

Clean roll-up and unroll on a vertical line. The nose is up with IN and OUT.

Judges view:

As an imposed trick: only vertical entry is allowed. The trick should be done in one vertical line. OUT is straight up. In a ballet, IN is free (could be from within a Jacobs Ladder etc). OUT is also free, might even be a landing. Between IN and OUT, the kite may be flown around wrapped up in the lines.

Most common errors:

No straight line (imposed trick). The roll-up and unroll should be clean and deliberate.
