So I was trying to do the Augmented Reality side quests. I did the first ones just fine and got the upgraded grapple. Now I'm on the Advanced missions. I looked online and saw on here and other forums and in videos. Hold Space, press and hold Left CTRL while still holding Space, then release Left CTRL.

However, every time I release Left CTRL Batman instantly shoots way up instead of just gliding forward. I've been flying around the city to practice and so far nothing I have done is making a difference.

Could anyone help me understand please?

Aim downwards after dive bombing to counteract the altitude boost. Dive bombing gives an altitude and speed boost, but if you don't want the altitude, you can point Batman in a lower direction. This is pretty useful when you just want to maintain a level trajectory. – user2357112 Dec 12 '13 at 10:01

If you're using the mouse, you have to rapidly move it downwards after releasing Ctrl - the default movement boost will be upwards, but you can aim and move horizontally; you just have to do it quickly enough to level before you rise too high, and precisely enough to avoid landing.
