Default problem with aim constraint

Hey everyone, I'm having a problem with one of my aim contrstraints for my ball turret on my airplane. The ball turret actually has two aim constraints, one for rotating on the x axis, and one for the y axis. I have the ball turret following a locator. When I have the locator higher than the ball turret it works fine, but when I move it below the ball turret, it messes up for some reason. here is a video to help explain the problem. Thank you

i would say you need to set up an upVector, that will keep it from flipping.
