How about this? Don't say anymore, I'll get so puffed up I float off like a hot-air balloon. (sounds kind of funny)
More likely to hear: Hey stop, man, you're embarrassing me! (in America)

However, if Gus's quote was in English originally, I doubt that "fly" had that meaning. Gus said he didn't have more context, so we may be stuck . . .

let me give one example, Natasha.when people praise you, for example, he said:" you are very smart, also very pretty, also can speak very good spanish......" he is praising you, so in some countries, such as in China, people may say " donot praise me more, otherwise, I gonna to fly." I am not so sure whether you can get my meaning of this kind of expression, as I donot know whether in other countries, people say in this way or no. but this is what people here in China get used to reply. one friend from méxico told me this expression:" no me digas, de otra manera vuelo."Appreciate if someone would like to give some comments.

I'm not quite sure about the context of your quote, but "fly" here probably means flee as in run away, leave quickly. My attempt (but your Spanish is much better than mine):

Si no me elogias, en ese caso voy a huir.

(Waiting for corrections . . .)
