Sword Flying in Outskirts
n. Use of the fewest and barest essentials or elements, as in the arts, literature, or design.
This method was perfected and explained by Dark Helmet in a very nice video.
Since he did such a great job with the trick, I'm not going to beat it into the ground. Provided are the preparation steps and three videos that cover different results. Here are the steps:
If too much time passes and the enemy leaves the map, you won't be able to fly anymore. Think of it like this: you are magically tied to the enemy who you are using to fly. His location and your location on the map have an effect on the duration of your flight. The direction of your flight is influenced by where you aim.
Check the exploration section for more ground covered using this trick.
