I have been thinking about this more and more with my having gotten to Tier 6. Maybe as a later Tier update, you could have a shuttle or drone which could carry resources from remote outposts to the central hub without having to worry about terrain.

Maybe it could take the form of a helicopter or hover vehicle, require Fuel or a time delay to recharge batteries (use the power grid), and require an upgrade to the existing Vehicle Station. I also think to keep it balanced, it would have to carry less than the Tractor but be able to move faster than the Explorer.

It´s a neat idea!

Could have landing pads with recharge stations for the helicopter/hover vehicle, as well input/output for items to go from "A to B and vice versa"

Drone bays & Drones could potentially be way to go by it, with input/output and charging up the drones before leaving each station for it´s return trip back to where i came from

There is a rumour of a new storage container which may help you

A "smart" type container or something similar?

I also would like to be able to fly the thing. Was a little disappointed by the Jetpack crapping out after using one Fuel and requiring a landing

Yeah that´ll be neat to pilot it yourself, a flying explorer basicly :) But also be able to link up two stations and have it fly back and forth with items

it's very good idea!!! it will help me in for example: transporting resoureces!!!

i have an idea how to craft it:

fan*4(iron rod*5 + modular frame*2 + reinforced iron plate*5) + motor*4 + cable*2 + wire*2 + iron plate*5

but, if you want you can decide what resources will be needed to craft it…

anyway, i am at your side and i want flying vehicle too!

There won't be any drones nor any flying vehicles.

Trains are next way to transport goods.

You don't know that, they could add em in a future update, just because the current roadmap doesn't say anything about it. It might happen going forward.

Actualy i dont see why we need trains...just do belt for 5KM and you are good. I imagine that train would eat up fuel and load of motors and you would still need to lay tracks true out wild life carying load of stuff back and front. Drone would not need tracks and need to build all the way to out post. If mixed with solar panels and batterys your out post could function on outo for the rest of the game. To prevent need for new animation just use hub drone you would only need landing pad. But that can be easily made by merging HUB and veichal bay.
