The Microweight Glider consists of a harness attached to a set of folding wings. The wings are formed from a set of retracting spars with a reinforced cloth. When fully extended the wings have a 4m wingspan. The glider also comes with a small grav thruster powered by a rechargeable battery that gives about 1 hour of thrust. The thruster unit isn't strong enough to lift the pack and the wearer but is enough to let the user gain altitude.
