Dont forget their sense of smell ..we all know about that, especially over piggerys and the like .
Its is more subtle in other places but still a part of most thermals, more so early on .
Their hearing would just be asubsonic version of ours and who knows ? We could develop it if we did not have varios.
One advantage of prone flying is perspective shift looking down.
Birds would use all of these and some I suspect relate to inclination/declination of local mag field which if viewed in 3d show invisible mountains .
Its likely a navigation method.
I cant prove the last one but magnetometers are a hobby of mine so perhaps 6 magnetometers nose ,keel,kingpost ,wing tips and base tube ? Intergrated and averaged .Our alloy or carbon frames make this dooable .
Could be a new play ground for us nerdy types?
or just stick with a vario and experience ?
