Ok so help me out please.

 

Whenever i am flying I have been having problems. I dont know if my down arrow isnt working, or if Im not doing it right. sometimes when I push it my dragon goes down, sometimes not. then when it doesnt, I have to use the number @ button on the number pad like you use to land. When racing or doing the flight club this  sucks because my reach isnt that great and I have to look to see where the button is. I am under the impression the down arrow is suppose to do it however and maybe im doign soemthing wrong because it does work sometimes. I dont know.

 

any suguestions, or at least tell me what its SUPPOSE to do?

Yes, the down arrow is

Yes, the down arrow is supposed to work, as well as the letter "S".  Is there any chance that maybe you accidently pressed the function key while pressing the down arrow?  At least, that is the only reason I can think that the down arrow might occasionally not work (on my keyboard, the function key is just below the shift used for brake, so I figure there's a chance of pressing that while braking).  This, of course, is assuming that you use the keyboard for accel/decceleration... probably not much help, but it's all I can think of currently.

Dragons (odd spellings for fun):  [Total = 43]

Nadder:  Thorndaike

Whispering Death:  Seilence  (Doctor Who pun) and Cream Puff  (I was being sarcastic)

Gronkle:  Skarn  (named for a type of rock containing copper)

Smokebreath:  Cihrrus  (after a type of high-altitute cloud)

Monstrous Nightmare:  Salamandastron  (Redwall reference)

Zippleback:  Theta Serpentis  (after a binary star system)

       TITAN   Yeah, he got a slight color upgrade too :)

     

Stormcutter:  Sigma Nine  (Sigma, for obvious visual reasons, but since that name was not available by itself, I turned it into a rather remote Doctor Who reference)

Skrill:  Artron E  (Named for time-travel energy in Doctor Who)

Changewing:  Nantang  (Omaticayan name for the Viperwolf in Avatar (Cameron's, not the Airbender whatsit))

 

Flightmare:  Silverfish  (well, that's what they look like to me)

Fireworm Queen:  Penta Trapezohedra  (named after a geometric shape, Pentagonal Trapezohedron.  The shape has two sets of five sides with each face having four sides, and the Fireworm has two sets of five legs with four toes to each leg.... yeah, I'm a bit of a nerd.)

Screaming Death:  Cpt Blood  (after the fiction novel - he has the coloring of a fence lizard (minus the red spikes), so I randomly decided to name him after a fencer...)

Grapple Grounder:  Spitfire  (after RAF WWII plane - cause he's got that toothy grin and phenominal stats)

Rumblehorn:  Malohkeh  (reptilian scientist in Doctor Who series 5 - the Rumblehorn looked rather prehistoric to me, and being rather fond of the green coloring for them... reptilian character from the dawn of time it was)

Wooly Howl:  Petrikor  (yes, another Doctor Who ref. - although *Petrichor* (correct spelling) wasn't an option)

Raincutter:  Ikran  (Omaticayan name for the Banshee in Avatar - color options a tad dissappointing.  He looks nothing like the color swatch I have picked out)

 

Boneknapper:  Doctor McCoy (Star Trek reference - Dr. McCoy's nickname is bones... hence the joke)

Devilish Dervish:  Protonus  (Three protrusions from his head, so my first thought was an atom, until I thought of a Proton - composed of 2 "up" quarks, and a "down" quark - which matched his head)

 

Speed Stinger:  Velocitor  (Named after his high velocity and the fact that he looks like a Velociraptor)

Groncicle:  Iceman  (Marvel: X-men - one of the few times I kept the starter colors for a dragon)

 

Death Song:  River Song  (Doctor Who.  Dainty in appearance, dangerous, that alarming shade of red, and everyone is mesmerized - wait, am I talking about the Death Song or River Song?)

Razorwhip:  Knight  (I thought he looked a bit like a medieval knight's gauntlet.  The only other time I kept starter colors on a dragon)

Armorwing:  Groot  (Marvel: Guardians of the Galaxy)

Thunderpede:  Juggernaut  (Marvel:  X-men.  What else do you name a hulk sized dragon with giant fists?  Although this second pic makes me think more of Eliot from Pete's Dragon.)

Hobblegrunt:  Opal  (a sort of silvery-grey rock with shimmering splashes of various colors)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Snafflefang:  Sea Urchin  (the snafflefang's spikey tail just says sea urchin to me)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Nadder:  Cloud Strife  (Final Fantasy - I thought the Titan nadder seemed a bit over the top with the spikes, so I thought it'd be funny to name a titan nadder after a video game character with an accentuated hairdo)

       TITAN!

  

Tide Glider:  Loch Ness  (after the mythical or possibly prehistoric creature that haunts the harbors of Ireland - anyone ever wonder if it was just something like the last Plesiosuar (or distant cousin) to have lived?)

Sweet Death:  Songbird  (Marvel.  The striped look was too good to not draw attention to.  But since the stripes were unalterably black, black and white it was - otherwise, I would've been tempted to use light and dark shades of purple and named it after the Cheshire Cat.)

Night Terror:  Sidri  (Marvel: space creature that, with others, can form themselves into a giant, near invulnerable ship)

Scaldron:  Bloodtide  (Marvel: technically a villain, but her abilities include waterkenesis and flight)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Sliquifier:  Perelandra  (After a book by C.S. Lewis - the sliquifier just reminded me of the dragons and scenery in the book with their "flowy" sea serpent look.)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Shockjaw:  Xenon  (After one of the gases in a Plasma/Tesla ball which gives it that "flowering" look at the end of the filaments)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Thunderdrum:  Banshee  (Marvel: X-man with a sonic scream)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Snow Wraith:  Manta  (Marvel: one of the Imperial Guard of the Shiar empire, having infared vision and flight)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Skrill:  TRON  (After the movie.  I decided I will grow a skrill specifically for Titan stage, and the Skrill's "modern" Titan look makes me think of the recent modernized version of the TRON movie.)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Singetail:  Tandem  (After their unique wing arrangement)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Eruptodon:  Cannonball  (Marvel: New Mutants.  Although admittedly, he looks a bit litterally like a cannonball too)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Shivertooth:  Wolverine (Marvel: X-men.  'Cause sharp claws that leave people in stitches sounds familiar...)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Timberjack: SRZI ( - that was the closest I could come to writing "SR-71" (Blackbird) - so named after the type of jet the X-men use in the movies.)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Tyfoomerang: Lockheed (X-men: Kitty Pryde's pet dragon from another planet.)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

Terrible Terror: Mushu (Named after Mulan's pocket sized guardian with an attitude.)

       ***[Pictures to Come!!!]***

.

I don't know of an official list, but I can give you a list of what I do know.

 

Direction:  arrows (which you know) and W, A, S, D where W is up, S is down, A is left, and D is right.

Space bar:  Acceleration (when flying), Jump (when on the ground) - double jump to take flight (when mounted), Reel in (when fishing)

Left Shift:  Brake (when flying)

R:  Mount/dismount (Ride)

F:  Shoot (Fire)

B:  Access Journal (Book)

 

I also seem to recall that i does something too - I think it just opens a different tab in the journal, research if I'm not mistaken.  There may be other controls too, but I'd have to just start punching things in different situations to find out.
