Iron cross doesn't work unless you're upside down.

Planche, maltese, etc. yes do work.

However, based on my experience it's superior to move your BODY through space even with assisted exercises rather than moving weights through space. No study to confirm this but it's basically like saying pullups are better than lat pulldowns. We all know what is superior.
