Default Straight Jump Issues

I'm having issues doing straight jumps. I want to do plain Indy or Method grabs but I always spin 180 or 270 which is bad. This is caused by me going off the lip of the jump on edge and/or popping off an edge.

If you want yo go straight off the jump what is the correct approach? I used the free snowboard addiction 180/360 jump vids for my current approach but I'm lacking the knowledge for straight jumps.

Do you set up your position and then flat base up the ramp or something else? I know Wolf says you should never be completely flat at speed, which is why I've been nervous to just flat base it. So I guess I'm confused and need help. thanks
