What are the controls for riding on your Loftwing?

I apologize if this question has been addressed already but does anyone know with certainty how the Loftwing (a.k.a. the bird you ride) is controlled? I get the feeling it's going to be controlled the same way Fluzzard was in Super Mario Galaxy 2, where titling the Wii Remote itself, rather than the Control Stick, steers the bird.

This method works okay but it's not my preference. If the Loftwing is controlled that way, hopefully it won't be too bad since I imagine you'll be flying quite often.

Also, every time I see Link riding on that boulder through the lava I feel a bit uneasy because it's probably going to be controlled like the large sphere Mario rides atop in both Mario Galaxy games. I have mixed feelings about those levels in SMG and SMG2.

I'm not hating on the game or trolling. In fact, it's my most anticipated game this year. I ask that you forgive me if I am bit trepidatious about somethings that could be a few sour notes in a possible musical masterpiece. Also, please forgive me for using that lame metaphor. :P

Yeah I'd assume you point the controller in the direction you want to fly, and press A to use up a 'wing' (Like Eponas carrots).

Though I wouldn'r be surprised if they give you the option to use the nunchuck to move it.

not sure about the bird, but the boulder is analog.
You can swing your sword on the boulder

Oh good. I hope you're right.

I played the demo of it, all you do is move the Wii Remote to guide it (it flies on it's own), swing the Remote up if you want to rise, down if you want to descend, and press A to dash.

That's all there is to it.

That's what I thought; it IS like Fluzzard (except for the dash). Hmmm.

Well, maybe it won't so be bad. I'll have to wait and see.

I actually understand wht you're worried, that SMG bird thing was quite hard to get used to. But SMG didn't use WM+. I'm pretty sure the bird here isn't going to as bad, because it'll be more like the airplane in WSR.

Do you tilt the remote down, left and rightto change direction or drop. 'flap' the remote up and down to gain heigh and press A to dash forward?

That was how I imagined it played from E3 videos

Here's the difference; Mario Galaxy 2 used the standard Wiimote, this uses Motion Plus, so it will be a lot more precise, more like flying the plane in Wii Sports Resort.
