Flying To McDonald’s On My Paramotor

People often ask “can you fly that thing to work/school/the store?” Although it’s not really practical to do daily, I sometimes find an interesting place to land.

Cameron Robertson and Todd Reichert, the co-lead engineers of the Kitty Hawk Flyer also answered some questions by email about how the Flyer works and how they designed it to be as simple to operate as an Xbox.
