    I think this is easiest done on level 8-1. Start out at low power and just flap your arms up and down while going up the hill. Near the top, there are some rocks to dodge and you can get a few here too.
    I tried the other methods posted here and couldn't do those and even this one took a little practice. This is 1 of the hardest achievements on this game for me so if you're having a hard time, keep at it.

    Midge888I agree with the option of level 8.1 for this achievement. In addition I found that in order to get the daredevil bonuses you need to swoop close down to the ground a couple of times before you reach the arches, then stay as close to the rising ground as possible while going through the arches, before using the swoop technique again a couple of times before hitting the building. It needs practice but after a couple of dozen attempts I actually got 11 on the final successful run.

    Mike MarcelaisThe trick, which is not obvious from the text but was clear from the video is that the ground is bumpy enough in the channel that you don't have to go up and down there -- the ground goes up and down enough to get a slew of icons.

    I kept crashing (or was too far from the ground) before I realized this -- when I stopped trying to swoop in the channel, I got this on the first try. Upvote!

    MathGuy42If you start on Low Power and pointed as low as possible, you can get an immediate Daredevil from passing over a rock.

    I unlocked this in challenge level 1 (unlock it with 5 gold medals on Elkhart) where you can collect many badges in the air. Instead go down and to the right, very close to the ground and go up and down until you get to the very end. Gaining a blue daredevil icon every time you're near the ground. Stay away from trees and houses. I managed to get 12 this way after many retries.

    Alternative route: you can try dodge the 3 towers in the start and continue after that dodging objects and the ground. I could only get to 8 this way but it might be possible.

    HotdogmcgeeGot 11 doing this, first real try. Curved around the back of the structure for the last 2.

    StarshadeFPSNice one!

    StarshadeFPSI got 12 on one of my first tries with the first method. The other one I wasted 2 hours on before I figured out to go down and to the right. Easy 5.9 ratio achievement once you get the technique down.

    I used the Challenge Level from Chapter 3 (unlocked by getting Gold on levels 3-1 through 3-5). Start with a low power shot and head downwards. Try to stay as close as you can to each of the towers as you pass them, and don't forget you can also get Daredevil Icons by flying close to the ground too. Even after you've passed every tower, you can still get a couple more icons just by flying up and diving down to the ground. This is very tricky to achieve, but with a bit of practise, it's totally possible.

    NBA KirklandI did on challenge 6 by simply flying close to the ground. You'll get it well before the end of the level.

    Skanker irl+1, I used this method. After some frustration and getting 8 (four times) and 9 (three times) it finally clicked for me and I got 15. My advice would be to not even worry about the towers and worry about gliding along the ground. Especially at the end of the level because the ground is flatter and you can just glide all the way to the mountains along the ground.

    MattiasAndersonBest solution for sure!
