it sounds cool!  Can you think of a better name for them?  Even though I don't really understand the thinking behind the name, I still thnk that it sounds cool.

I dunno, why are corkscrews on B&M inverteds called wingovers?  do B&M cars have wings?  why a boomerang?  they aren't shaped like one.  what about a batwing?  since when do batwings look like that?  its simply a name that sounds cool or possible strikes fear in people.  maybe not so much boomerangs, but all the others do...sort of  ;)

batwing makes some since, boomerangs makes alot of since.  maybe it's ment like as the crow(raven) flys, like the shortest distance between any 2 pointis a striaght line and thats what a raven turn does, it turns right around in a striaght line kinda.

It's simple.  It's called that because Arrow calls it that.  I'm sure the designer got his/her inspiration from a bird in flight.

I think there's an inversion called a change over but that fits the raven turn better, Right? Change from top rail to suspended! Or a backflip!
