Ironman, eat your heart out! :righton:

It's more like controlled falling than really flying, but I'd love to try it. :D
that does look pretty awesome. :righton:

I can't get over how he flew OVER rock outcroppings, seemingly at times only 10 feet or so above them.
What if his trajectory and glide ratio was not what he expected? He would not realize he was too low until about half a second before he went SPLAT on the rocks.

Falling next to the cliffs, that's cool, and seems safe enough. Whether he falls faster or slower than he expected, he's got plenty of air underneath him.

This would be an issue of confusing luck for talent. Lots & lots of luck!
