Q: What is the difference between Floating and Flying?
A: Floating is the beginner mode. The sleigh’s Auto Pilot will keep you out of trouble. Try this mode first. Move to Flying when you have a feel for Santa Wings.

Q: How do I control Santa’s sleigh?
A: It depends if you’re Flying or Floating.
If you are Floating, which is the beginner mode, just hold your iPhone on its side at a 45-degree angle. Lean it forward away from you to pitch down (lose altitude and go down). Lean it back towards you to pitch up (gain altitude and go up). Tilt it to the right to turn right. Tilt it to the left to turn left. Santa Wings has a built-in Auto Pilot when Floating which will correct your piloting errors. The Auto Pilot won’t let you turn too far to the right or left, which would have put you into a spiral or dive. The Auto Pilot also won’t let you pitch too far forward or back. And, when you bank, it completes your turns for you. What could be easier than that?
If you are Flying, then you’re in for a wild ride if you don’t keep a watchful eye on your movements. Hold your iPhone on its side at a 45-degree angle. Lean it forward away from you to pitch down (lose altitude and go down). Lean it back towards you to pitch up (gain altitude and go up). Tilt it to the right to bank to the right. Tilt it to the left to bank to the left. But you’re in charge of everything else, including backpressure to “pull your way” through a turn, handling spins, flips, spirals and more. Don’t worry, Santa Wings does have an Auto-Throttle so you’ll always have lift. Remember, Wings is supposed to be fun, not a flight trainer.

Q: Where do I land the sleigh?
A: You got Santa Wings to fly, not to sit on the ground. There are no places to land, just places to explore.

Q: Where is the North Pole?
A: You can try to find the North Pole. It changes position every time you start flying. So it’s actually quite challenging to find. And that’s good because that way only Santa can find his way to the North Pole. You’ll know it when you see it. Fly straight at the pole to get a message from Rudolph.

Q: How do I return to the main screen when flying?
A: Just tap the screen to access the in-flight controls, then tap the arrow to return to the main menu.

Q: How do I speed up or slow down?
A: Just tap the screen to access the in-flight controls, then slide the bar on the right up or down.

Q: How do I hide the reindeer so I can see scenery full screen?
A: Just tap the screen to access the in-flight controls, then tap the reindeer button on the left.

Q: How do I play music from my iPod as background music when flying?
A: Go to your iPhone settings screen. Scroll down to the very end and select Santa Wings. Turn “Sound & Music” to OFF. The built-in music tracks in Wings will no longer operate, but any music played from your iPod will continue to play through when you start Wings.

Q: How do I increase the distance I can see and reduce the mountain “grow” effect?
A: Go to your iPhone settings screen. Scroll down to the very end and select Santa Wings. Read the instructions under “Viewing Range”

Q: Can I change the angle at which the iPhone must be held to fly level?
 A: Yes. Go to your iPhone settings screen. Scroll down to the very end and select Santa Wings. Read the instructions under “Angle Adjustment”

Q: How can I mute the sound?
A: On the main screen, you will find a speaker/mute button in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. Tap multiple times to rotate through the build in songs or mute all sounds. This means you can play Wings whenever you want.

Q: What happens if Santa Wings won’t launch and is acting really weird?
A: This will probably never happen to you. But, just in case, try this: Reset your phone by holding down the on/off and Home button at the same time for at least 15 seconds. Your iPhone will reboot and all should be good. If not, then try this: Go to your iPhone settings screen. Scroll down to the very end and select Santa Wings. Turn “Reset ALL data” to ON. Than launch Wings. This resets Santa Wings back to the factory defaults without changing your other iPhone data.
