The Order of Secrets
Though they don’t understand it well, they do realize the planet has a magnetic field, and they understand that they can create magnetic fields. This design makes use of this knowledge in an attempt to provide lift via something we would later call MPD (Magnetic Planetary Drive). Airfoils keep it aloft once the drive gets it airborne. It’s power comes from batteries, big jars of acid with electrodes, making up over half it’s weight. Even so it’s only good for a half-hour of flight time, and it’s much to heavy to land unpowered. It stalls going less than 45 mph.
So far the Ottomurians feel this is their best shot at taking on Quanra gliders, if they could get it right. Their current attempts have only lasted a few minutes and have involved many fatalities. It does prove that the idea is possible however.
