The literature is full of examples of people who have flipped their classes. Fewer papers address what happens years later. Spring 2019 marks ten spring semesters since Engineering Statics in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at North Carolina State University was first run as a flipped class. In this paper, I will talk about the years from 2007 to 2013 during which time the course was redesigned. I will catalog the main research findings from the initial flipped class as well as the changes made in the years since then. I will describe the current course as it has developed over the ten years since it was originally flipped and the learning objects used in it. My subjective experience from the redesign is included along with comments from some of the students.
