What is this 3D maneuver called?

Pilot-RC: Slick 103" (2.63m) (3 min 59 sec)


At about 1:10 into the video, what is this 3D maneuver called? What stick inputs are needed to enter and exit this maneuver? Thanks in advance!

When asked by journalists what Bezák's tumble maneuvers were, he jokingly called them Lomcovaks explaining it means headache.

The expression Lomcovat is commonly used in Moravia to describe the rotating motions of someone who has had one drink too many of its infamous alcoholic drinks called slivovitz.
