Create a Jacob's ladder flip animation

Trying to figure out how to create a flip like this.

I can do all the movement manually, but I feel like there is a mograph effector I could use to achieve this much more easily. I've tried shader and step, but I couldn't get it to work.

Here's my file:

Basically my file has everything I want except the jiggle between each flip and I can't get that effect since they are all children of the main plank. I tried to add the delay effector for that, but couldn't get it to work without a mograph object.

Any help would be awesome. But searching for a preferably non-dynamic solution.

Thanks

I know you'd rather avoid dynamics, but that would give you the most realistic result: 2851_jacobsladder.c4d.zip

Otherwise you could try the constraint tag's spring constraint, but I haven't had much luck with that.

Or you could use joints and IK dynamics.
