Glide/flying vehicle

Recommended Posts

a gliding or free flight would be fun to use and be useful to get around in. "Mars Explorer" had a car vehicle that was able to spread wings and glide around.

Id be happy with a Paraglider, sure would make assaulting those mountain tops worth while...............

Paraglider or Parachute? :) As a paraglider pilot (we are the ones using thermal convection to fly up a mountain) that would be awesome but not easy to implement. Going few meters uphill, start, search for convection and soar up a mountain to it's peak, and/or jump to the next peak. However, that needs daytime, convection scheme, and I can see lots of problems with Oxygen and Storms.

I think you thought of a parachute (like those use jumping out of airplanes) or from cliffs (base-jumpers). And yes, THAT would be awesome :)

I also think that you should join the orbiter and just fly in the atmosphere. You don't have to worry about falling into a hole in the ground.

I was eluding to a Parachute you can control a bit more than just fall.....

I would be satisfied just jumping off high places....
