  • #SemiAutonomousHangGliding

    I imagine a hang glider with an electric motor propeller for use when needed that has a small weight shifting motor set at the pilot's hang-point to help pull a pilot into the appropriate body shift position while flying in semi-autonomous mode for training for example, or in semi-autonomous mode when safe during otherwise fully autonomous hang gliding flights for brand new pilots.
