- — A Cucco
Falbi's Flight-by-Fowl is a mini-game from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Run by Falbi, the mini-game is available twenty-four hours a day. It is located in a hut atop a cliff, overlooking Lake Hylia, that can be access either through Hyrule Field or by talking to Fyer, who will launch Link up to Falbi's hut through the use of his Human-cannonball Ride. The object of the game is to jump from a platform connected to the building while holding onto a Cucco. While in mid-air, Link can guide the Cucco through different targets to receive Rupees, with the main goal of ultimately landing on one of the many platforms making up a mutli-tiered floating island called the Isle of Riches, where many prizes can be found. The ultimate prize, located on the topmost stationary platform, is a Piece of Heart. A rotating platform above the chest containing the Piece of Heart holds an Orange Rupee; unlike the other chests on the platforms, this chest can be opened several times. Aside from the Isle of Riches, Link can gain Rupees by landing on the the cliffside under Falbi's hut, one of the many ledges on Fyer's cannon, or the head of one of two snake-shaped statues bordering Lanayru Spring.
Each game costs 20 Rupees; however, they can be regained on the trip down by gliding through the Rupee-shaped outlines in the air. If Link wears the Iron Boots, he will drop at a faster rate. Also, if Link throws all the Cuccos in the hut off the cliff, Falbi states he must learn to fly by himself.
Interestingly, a wind-switch is located on the roof of Falbi's hut. If Link uses the Gale Boomerang on it, the rotating platform housing the Orange Rupee will stop spinning, making the landing much easier.
