I've never seriously thought of making one, but our mountain land would be perfect. I don't have a long term need for hauling things up and down the slopes now that the debris from thinning and cleaning up is just about gone.
Cool Skybike too. Now if I owned the other side of the canyon.... (it's forest service)

I've thought about using it to get my kids down into the village for school (1.5 miles). We are probably 500 feet above the village, and the road takes about 20 minutes.
More importantly, it could be a toy for me...
But, they are interesting, and I bet they could be very useful.
