Striking the Cliff

A preflight, verifies the wings will work, and then a run-up assures that enough energy is pointed in the right direction — before takeoff.

Although certainly more exciting, doing the takeoff part first, and then the wing and direction part after, has its draw backs.

For folding wings, I think I prefer an inflated wing, flying controllably overhead before making the leap, is a neat compromise.
