Hoy! Small fry!

Flight Control Platform

To the west of here, over on Dragon Roost Island, you'll see all kinds of rocks. Big ones, little ones...you get the picture. Anyway, they say that long ago, there used to be treasure hidden inside these things. Who knows? There may still be some left, so you should open your eyes and take a good look around...from as high-up as the sun to as low-down as your toes!

Kooloo-Limpah!

Flight Control Platform

The Rito people have always held contests in that area.

Features and Overview

The Flight Control Platform is operated by Willi and Obli, a pair of human siblings dressed as Ritos.[2][3] On the first level of the Flight Control Platform, Old Man Ho Ho can be found staring at the distant banner.[4]

A Submarine can be found southwest of the Flight Control Platform. To open the Treasure Chest at the end of the Submarine, Link must press the step switch inside, spawning enemies that he must then defeat. Within the chest is the Platform Chart, showing the locations of all the Lookout Platforms. In addition, after collecting and opening the Treasure Chart guarded in the Four-Eye Reef, Link can retrieve the Island Hearts Chart.

Bird-Man Contest

Main article: Bird-Man Contest

The brothers that control the Flight Control Platform challenge Link to a minigame, the Bird-Man Contest. Using the Deku Leaf as well as the updrafts present in the sea, Link must fly across a long stretch of sea past a goal post. If the goal is reached, the Bird-Man Contest yields a Piece of Heart as the prize. Willi also tells Link how far he flew, with the goal post being 250 yards from the Flight Control Platform.[5]
