Helipush wall climber

Copter pushes the vehicle onto the wall
  [vote for,

Rather than hovering this vehicle drives on its wheels, pushed onto wall with the copter.

A personal version attached to your back allows you to simply climb up a mountain or building wall.

       [+], but walking up a wall this way is going to be at least as difficult as climbing a ladder.

       If the rotor exerts a purely horizontal force then I think you'd still fall down a smooth wall. It would be like trying to crawl along the floor with 80kg pulling you backwards.

       If you slip... the 10,50, 80 whatever kg (100,500,800 Newtons, I know) will be forcing your face into the building while the other 80kg drags you down. Not fun.

       Probably work well for walking across the ceiling.

       Well, why not angle it a bit to support its own weight as well s some of your own. Just make sure you always have some force towards the wall since your contact with the wall is the only control you have.

       all the more thrill for the spectators, no?
