    practice makes perfect...
    hence, nobody is perfect, why need to practice...?
    ok, jokes aside....
    do not jump backwarding... jump and make contact to the shuttle infront of head... keep on practicing

    It's all about timing.

    +1 on the timing.

    It helps if you perfect the non-aerial smash first before adding any jumping into the mix. Use your non-dominant hand to take aim at the shuttle. When you've got good aim, let loose and smash.

    The jumping can come later.

    Remember that you have to first master the form of the standing smash before trying to jump. And like most people have said, timing is very important. Also, read this thread. It's about how to jumpsmash as hard as a standing smash.

    Practice practice practice. Some people are born with the talent to do so, while others need to train a little more and play more productively
