    Nah, I'm scared of heights, much happier with all my wheels on the ground.

    Besides, if I built it it would weight 2 tons and have at least three winches on it and a motor the size of a Chinook!^_^

    Precurser to the Kestrel & Harrier. Built as a technology demonstrator.

    Something similar nearly killed Neil Armstrong.
