We watched your video and everything is coming along nicely.
Regarding tipping upright after looping the feet- As you let the fabric slide through your hands, you want to simultaneously circle the legs and drive your feet towards the ground. Engaging with your lower core to drive down, and also engage with your upper core to bring your upper body up. You can make a knot in your fabric (or use a hammock ), and drill this action separately. Hang in your inverted pike, and circle the legs down to sit up.
Re- pagoda to knee drop- Yes, you’ve understood correctly. Try an even looser grip and bend your knees with more energy.
– Double cross will add more security.
Hope that helps! Let us know how it goes….
