All I wanted to draw was steampunk pony...

I ended up with military batterypunk earth pony flying suit

fff and then spent like 3 times as long as I figured out the logistics while sketching it.

In brief:

-leg cannons are electrically activated, by connecting metal contacts on underside of two front hooves. kinda like, when you go into a swan dive, you shoot bullets.

-clips are located on inner-side of leg, extra clips in that metal part (can be grabbed with mouth)

-that metal part clips in front to add stability to wings, puts throttle for engines at the mouth. Clips, swings open

-battery located on back. Contacts from from main aperatus through wiring to front "socks", and down to contacts in hooves. "socks" are clipped on with straps that both secure them and run power to them.

-"socks" ave wongs for control. Some steering can be done via tilting the whole aparatus at the throttle, but most maneuvering is done via legs.

This really doesn't make sense, but within that not-making-sense I attempted to make it make sense. which takes too much ffking time XD

... Imma call this pony Cloud Surfer for now

Nice work-definitely worth a +fave. :D
Now, all we need is a picture of her stressing out over instructing an eager but klutzy flying recruit with crossed eyes... ;)

Man, that hat would be long-gone once they got airborne. Still incredibly awesome looking! I like how you tried to figure out the logistics for a hypothetical mechanical flying suit for non-existent intelligent, magical pony-creatures.
