set spin in between backflip and lincoln loop (once you get used to it you can make them more and more flat) drop right shoulder, while looking over it, and grab japan. do it with the opposite shoulder if you spin the other way.
set with your hand from behind you to your right foot/shin area. as youre doing that try to push your legs up and out. look straight around and maybe a bit up. then spot your landing. for flat 3 look up as youre coming around past 270. for rode 5 keep looking around to 540. hope that helps. the first few times try grabbing your shins to help keep your legs up. and most importantly: commit. i learned to be comfortable with the set by trying it softly into the tramp bed a few times. then when you get a feel for it just take it all the way!
hope that helps yo. im set to try the same stuff on snow this year

The most important thing with setting a flat IMO is to be patient and follow the transition of the jump. Rather than trying to stay square and upright at the lip you'll need to let the jump take your skis up from under you. If your patient with the jump all you need to do is drop one shoulder and look over the other.
Hope this helps.
PS one of the tricky things with a flat is that you need a jump/lip to help set the rotation so its hard to practice this on a tramp or such.
PS the weird ass grab I was doing did set me a bit more inverted in this clip than normal. As the jump isn't very big I needed to sling it a bit by throwing my right leg forward and up before I was off the lip.
This makes it a little more inverted/rodeo like but its still a flat to me and without it the move is definitely flat.
