It doesn't completely stop dorks if the pilot can cut it close enough to dork exactly at the end of the time window. But in our experience it's easier to get within a few seconds of the end and then slide it in and stop right at the end of the window, hopefully. It's also a lot easier on the airplane. I wouldn't dare try a dork with my Cumulus and Magic. It would shatter the pod.
