That looks pretty cool. I think that's a great idea. When you go on a hike and you get to the top of the mountain and you're tired, just fly back down. Or better yet just get a ride to the top of a mountain in the first place.

Was that you moaning during the flight? Just teasing.

I like that. No airplane to jump out of. Even better with a fan.

I'd like to do that. This forest area here in the NW really isn't the ideal situation for nonpowered flight. After you crash into a tree you still have 100 feet to fall.

Thinking about running off the mt. Helps me get hike up the mt. Faster, I belong to a flying club 20 minutes from my house, they have a quad that runs people up the mountain all day long, for flying. Called soboba flight park. Best decision i ever made. Everyone should try it once in their life.

They do some of that at the beach near here. Sometimes hang-gliders and sometimes para-gliders. I can see that being fascinating when you're around land that isn't full of trees.
