I've tried several techniques: imagining it, super jump, gliding, manipulating gravity didn't work too well though (fell like a stone...splat!). My preferred technique came to me after watching the matrix months ago, when I became lucid I remembered how neo takes off and I decided to try it out.

-Matrix/modified superjump: Once completely lucid stand with one leg forward, squat down, then leap straight up(tucking your arms to the sides). When you need to change directions or speed untuck your arms and legs and lunge in that direction with your arms and legs tucked. This technique usually makes you move at an extremely high speed (probably about mach one on average, although I have travelled to the other side of the earth in seconds before), so you have to have a clear picture of where you want to land (otherwise.. bye ).

The first time I did it this way I had difficulty controlling my speed and direction, but now that I've practiced, it has become mostly second nature for me(not to mention my primary method of transportation in LDs).

Today in my LD i ran and jumped and failed a few times.
I used the super man techniche. My head and my body had a careful balanced. If my head was not at an angle I would fall.

I fly like they do in crouching tiger hiden dragon lol. Dont need any position or even to really think about it. I just kind of -floof- fly. But its a very gently slow flying. Good control, bad speed. For speed I walk ^_^ When I want to move fast I kind of glitch around the scenery

I've used the superjump, swimming technique and the superman one.

When I was young, I used to run really fast so I took off, then I would flap my arms (like a bird). It didn't last very long, but it was cool (it was in NDs).

Anyway, in my latest LD, I jumped to get into the air. After that I started swimming, I got up into the air easily, but it was very slow. Because of this, I did superman style, which was very successful. For me, steering was very easy during the superman style and I could alter my speed. I went fast.

I haven't tried any of the other techniques, but I'll have a go next time I LD.

I still prefer my jumpiness to flying. I think it's more relaxing to aim a jump than to fly around in complete control.

Swimming in the Air!
PostPosted: Tue 02 Jan, 2007  Reply with quote

<mod>Merged into the 'different styles of flying' topic tryfly -Q i need a Q smiley</mod>

Just to let ppl know, if you are having
trouble with achieving flight: I found out in my last
LD whilst experimenting, (Click Here) that 'swimming' in the air like you would do
underwater helps a great deal in controlling your flight grin .
I guess you'd have to know how to swim underwater though irl, hehe. (Or maybee not... hehe its after all 'your dream')

I found this the most calming, and non stressfull way to achieve flight so far

Give it a try siiw

I've always kind of done it the Douglas Adams way: fall down and forget to hit the ground. ;D

In LD's I love flying so I grow wings to fly somehow.

In other words, what I do is jump off something high and grow wings during my fall. ^^

I dunno about airbending... never saw the show... For me, good 'ol ways are best ones. Superman, Just by, spreading arms, etc. But it's more a matter of taste, every way causes you to fly smile

As a kid I could fly sometimes when I had a "magical prune" (it's *** ridiculous, I know), and the actual flying would consist of concentrating on flying very hard and then taking off.
Keeping myself airborne was alot harder and I crashing was a major issue.

It is fun to just float around with no control doing flips and twirls... but it does become a nuisance, and thats when I like to fly gently but swiftly like peter pan smile.
