It stayed locked to flat. That's Teebird type of performance not a Valkyrie until now. I wasn't expecting it at all.
Good story. I also find that when I'm getting a good spin on the Valkyrie it flies extremely well for me at all the distance plateaus I've gone through in the past. My current opinion is that the Valkyrie is my hands-down favorite Innova disc for all around play. Every time I learn to throw better and go to another plateau it is the Valkyrie that is my most consistent disc. It is also more versatile than the Teebird (although I love the TB too).
I've been doing a cross between a fan grip and a power grip, but with my thumb-index fingers pinched hard. My middle fingers are slightly out under the flight plate and help me control orientation (I don't really use them otherwise).
