In this case, the edge is in its correct location, but it's flipped. I am assuming that this is also the buffer position.

What you do is:
1. Pick any unsolved edge/spot ( I don't know what to call it).
2. You shoot the flipped piece there, breaking into a new cycle. Memorize where you shot the piece.
3. During memo, pay attention to the orientation of both pieces before the swap, and visualize what they would be like after swapping.

My explanation is probably off, but someone else may be able to help you.

Yes, memorize as if you are shooting a piece into a position that does not already have a correct piece in it. Then all you have to do is go from there...

Harder to explain than it is to do...

breaking = good when two cycles are bad
if the cycle ur on is gonna end in a flip of the starting piece, break into a cycle with a flip as well
that way when u shoot back to the OTHER sticker of the the breakage piece u flip both at once
