Cradling just seems like a not only interesting, but a useful skill in badminton games. I can cradle from the air quite easily, but I still have trouble flicking it from the ground. Any tips, videos, secrets you'd like to share?

"Cradling" is catching the bird with your racket in the air.

i think he means that he is having trouble trying to scoop the bird when its on the ground
and the only advice i can give is to just keep on practicing and eventaully you should get it

Just keep in mind...
It shall be a "fault":
13.3 if in play, the shuttle:
13.3.7 is caught and held on the racket and then slung during the execution of a stroke;

I think he means like catching the shuttlecock in the air with the racquet? As in flicking it, if you want to flick the shuttle with a racquet, use a quick flick of your wrist and hit the feather part of the shuttle in the opposite direction of which the shuttle is facing.

I'm sorry, I guess I wasn't clear enough. I always thought cradling in badminton (yes, we cradle babies, too) was either from the air, and lifting it off the ground, the latter I'm seeking advice on.

oh in that case, you need to do it in a right speed, the head of the bird facing your hand and the racket is parralel with the bird's side. practice is the only advice i can give.

cradling.... do you mean catching it in the air and picking up a shuttle from the ground? Just takes practice with flicking the wrist.
