A variant of a high-speed yo-yo maneuver used to prevent overshooting or to reduce angle-off. In the classical yo-yo, as the attacker reaches the top of the yo-yo, his or her aircraft rolls rapidly in the opposite direction to the defender's turn. This has the effect of pulling the aircraft in tighter behind the defender.
