what kind of inversion is this?

I'm sorry this is such a stupid question, but what kind of inversion is this? I think it's a dive loop but I'm not sure. I'm new to the whole inversion "name" thing. http://rcdb.com/installationgallery275.htm?Picture=1

You are correct, it is a Dive loop

Dive loop. The train curves going into the loop, comes out of the loop straight.

If the shoe fits, find another one.

I thought the first inversion on Mantis was a dive loop, and this appears to be the opposite of that.

Nope, they're the same. The Chang picture is a little confusing because its hard to tell which way the train is going.

The first inversion on the Mantis is a vertical loop, the dive loop is second.
