I have used object assistance once and the object was a balloon. Yea it was a bit slow but totally fun. Hard to steer though. I usually just glide and I seem to go fast enough and to be able to steer.

In my childhood LD's either I used the Nothing method or a variation where I hovered over the ground and moved the ground really fast below me until I was at my destination instead of me flying.

The only flying technique I have ever used (I have only had one LD) was the 'growing wings' one. I had to conjore a mirror so I knew I actually had wings (they were dragon wings) and for my 10 seconds of lucidy, it was excellent. Then I started to fade out into another dream. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

My favourite styles of flying are supermen and transfer wave, which I call "Wind" ^^ . Wind is very easy to achieve for me. I can control a speed of my Wind and form. The Wind can transform itself into flying platform or magic carpet etc.

Just run super fast and use that to take off then just glide with it.

Superman style is my favorite!

I fly extremely fast in my dreams. Sometimes it's a little frightening because I fly at breakneck speed, but I've had so much practice, I miraculously never crash.

I also use superjump. When I stop ascending, I dive through the air as if it were water. But I keep my eyes on where I'm trying to fly too. I've only tried this when I fly DOWN.

I usually do superman, because I've find everytim I do a different method I end up crashing to the ground and it gets really annoying! hmm

I just thrust my weight forward, hands out to the front or side and will myself to lift from the ground. It's kind of a floating, bird like style. I'm very flexible, looping, twisting, turning, diving. Not very high at all, yet in complete control.

I first started out with the swimming method. It was the only way I could fly at the time... it felt so embarrassing. I remember telling people I could fly. They didn't believe me, then I would start flapping my hands, take off into the sky, and then they would believe me. Once I did that and the guy I was near took off superman style and called me a novice flyer! I don't think he was a DC. lol

Nowadays, I just fly, because I know lucidity means no limits. I guess I use the "imagine it" or the "nothing" method... I find it funnest to fly by using a spaceship of my construction. tounge1

And like Rotten Apples, I fly extremely fast also. It's hard for me to slow down once I get zoomin'. I've nearly splat into mountains countless times.
