My best distance in Icarus Factor to date is just over 100m, but some people on my friends list have made it well past the 300m mark. Does anyone have any tips on going the distance? Is there a specific method for flapping that works best?
After quite a bit of practice, my best attempt is now 476m, so I feel like I have a bit more of a handle on this skill game.
To begin with, I hold the left stick all the way to the right and begin with about 50% throttle. As I approach the ramp I increase this to 100% making sure to not let the front of the bike come off the ground. After hitting the ramp, hit Y to bail out slightly before the apex of the jump. Start flapping right away. The best method I've found is to leave your right thumb on Y and move your left thumb so that it can hit X, then alternate X and Y as quickly as possible. From watching the leaderboards, it looks like some people adjust their flight using the left thumbstick while in the air, but I didn't have much luck with that.
