The Fast Aerial
Step 1 - Quick Start
At the Same Time - Jump, Lean Back, and Boost!
Make sure that you hold your jump! This will give you more height than just tapping it
Use the "good video" at the top and watch the overlay on the bottom left
Step 2 - Second Jump
Stop leaning back -> Use the second jump
Make any aerial adjustments as needed
This should all happen as fast as possible. You can re-watch the overlay on the first video for reference
If you don't stop leaning as you perform your second jump, you will backflip. To reduce backflipping, increase dodge deadzone
The second jump should be about 0.25 - 0.40 seconds after your first jump (very quick)
If able to, set your boost to 52 with bakkes mod. If not, get close to 52 as possible and see if you can touch the ceiling. If you see sparks, you hit it!
If you get there before using 52 boost, you are not jumping and boosting at the same time - less boost is not better with fast aerials!

Should You Fast Aerial?
Fast Aerial When....
Well. the quick answer is... it's situational. Apply Game sense.
If the ball is high in the air and you know you can win a 50/50 or beat the opponent
Instead of using your second jump, you can save it and try for a powershot; apply the same fundamentals mentioned when learning the fast aerial
Don't Fast Aerial When....
Don't fast aerial is when the ball is uncontested and you're not going for a shot/pass
Be patient and control the ball, don't pass to the other team
