I so wish you were on Luna. I'm glad I'm not the only person wanting to develop methods of flight!
Aw, we’ll just dig a tunnel through the fabrics of existence, then. Keep me posted on your efforts and I make certain to share my findings with you!

This idea is daring and dangerous. I love it.
1) I hope you try to create a device that resembles a bird and not an airplane.
2) Why would a Hrothi of all tribes want to fly? Don't they love being attached to the ground?
1) A plane what?
And I think finding, domesticating and training actual avians is a more promising approach, currently. Intriguing idea to just build one, tho. I should keep that in mind.
In regards to flying machinery, I happen to have designed a cushioned ball of basket, roomy enough for at least two pilots, which can be launched via catapult. I hope to be putting it to the test soonish.
While limited in maneuverability, and landing is a bit iffy, it should turn out to be a very efficient way to travel, albeit short distances, very fast across otherwise not or barely traversable terrain or difference in height.
2) Mann always want what they don’t have, and the most what they don’t get.
And while I certainly dig our tunnels, my minds works best in the dark and my home, my haven is undergrounds, it is my dreams, my hopes and my destiny that lives and longs for the skies.
And don’t get me wrong, I stand by tradition and too am looking forward to the all annual Hrothi Toss Tournament our Brudvir brothers hold in honor of our friendship. But that small leap couldn’t satisfy my poor soul when I was just a small pebble. I want the real thing.
