can you fly a helicopter,drones or microlight on the moon? ¶
Given that Moon exploration is being planned by russia , Japan, India and others in the next 3 years and rovers have limited range is it possible to fly a helicopter or microlite and drones on the Moon? Obviously this would cover greater areas and accumulate more data particlarly if they can land and grab samples . Power souces? solar? Lift capacities? specific design or adapted existing models?
ADD ...can you send solar powered drones from an orbiting spacecraft to permanently stay on the moon and use programmed routes to map and sample the surface?
