I like the concept man........chain linked (hydraulically? to extend when in full flight...with the engines pulling your arse at good speed)....sweet...almost yacht like...like a windcatcher...well done so far!

Thanks man! I had a good think about what I was going to do, and I figured i'd try to make a vertical take of and landing aircraft, that would have somewhat tentacle-like "wings" and 4 turnable engines. And ofc yes, those "wings" are supposed to move in any direction and also the engines are supposed to be turnable, but only vertically. Thanks for your words bullet!

Seriously though...I had thought of something similar in the beginning...a solar pod...with 5 'chutes' being dragged along by a hydrogen scoop...which provided thrust as well as solar wind....skating along Saturn or Jupiters dust disc's...sweet.

cheers bullet
