It is extremely easy to navigate an aerial drone. You basically just point it in the direction you want to go and that’s it.

On the ground you need to navigate around obstacles, avoid surfaces that might bog you down, not fall into holes, etc.

Because there are much more types of terrain and their mixtures than “types” of air. There are also much more obstacles on the surface than in the air. That is why going into the 3rd dimension became so popular.

Flying is cheap with a drone and WAY BETTER. Nothing to HIT. No root to get stuck on, no 6 inch depression in the mud. Flying is mostly a pain in the ass because you have to keep a human pilot alive and able to use the craft, without that shit, a flying drone is a definitive war winning weapon.

A terrestrial drone can’t unfuck itself once it experiences minor inconvenience, and think about the actual constant course correction you have to do when you do something like walking. It also can’t really escape or evade, and it’s bound to be much slower.

Terrestrial drones are primarily used for mine laying, clearing, or just blowing shit up. Explosive RC cars will always stay in vogue.

They’ve been using em for a long time now. You take an RC car, armor it, toss a camera or a claymore on top, and drive it out to do recon or remote detonation. Problem is, there’s very little a model car can do that a sufficiently sneaky person can’t do better.

The drone, on the other hand, breaks a whole lot of barriers that a sufficiently sneaky person can’t overcome easily, such as dropping in from 800′ or flying over a wall or building for a cleaner strike
