Your initial movement and takeoff look pretty solid, but you're really just going to have to commit if you want to get a proper landing. The leg that is the last to leave the ground should also be the first to touch down; the reason you're landing more like a 540 is because you're holding back and eliminating whatever rotational force you've generated during the leadup. Try scooping your arms and kicking leg up simultaneously, hard, during the takeoff, waiting for the peak of the jump and then pulling both legs up and wrapping your arms into your body to begin the spin quickly. The rest is just a matter of "feeling" the ground for the landing, or quickly spotting the landing surface if your positioning in the air allows it.

Rather be forgotten than remembered for giving in.

Work your gainer flash before you start attempting a cork. At the moment all your are doing is a cheat gainer. It's a nice cheat gainer but you don't have enough power or height to wrap for a cork. Getting a nice high clean gainer flash will help tremendously.

see the difference between the two
