Cool ButterFlies?

I'm working on a particle driven sworm of ButterFlies.

I need the particles to glide for a distance, then allow the ButterFlies to flap their wings, raise in altitude, and return to gliding. Repeating this pattern while moving around in randome directions.

I seem to able to get the glide and raising to happen, but I can't get this to loop in PFlow. Is it possible to reset a particles age back to 0? So that the conditions can repeat for that particle again?

never mind. I figured it out. Didn't realize you could connect backward to older events.
