So, I worked out how fast Miles 'Tails' Prower would fall, if he fell out of, say, a plane. Or the Death Egg.
The results were interesting. Assuming he has a drag coefficient of 1.3 (similar to a person skydiving) and a cross sectional area of about 0.3 m^2 (it's the tails, mainly), he has a terminal velocity of about 27 ms-1.
Half that of a human skydiver, mostly because he weighs so much less. (Though rolling into a ball will make him fall substantially faster).
Now, here's the fun bit. He can at least take off while carrying Sonic and Knuckles (meaning he's lifting 20+35+40 kg altogether) for a downthrust of about five times his own body weight.
This means he can apply 4g surplus upwards acceleration in addition to cancelling his own weight, putting him at being able to screech to a halt while falling - in under a second. If he can fly carrying those two for even a second, he can stop in midair from a fall of any sane height. (That is, any height he doesn't play meteor).
Chaos Energy, eh?

Hey, for your next MLP Loops epic crossover, how's this idea: in tribute to the 60th anniversary, Godzilla*, and all the other Toho monsters, found their way into Equestria, and the Looping!Mane Six had to deal with them without most of their Looping-acquired powers and their subspace pocket access, which are locked away temporarily due to an error in Yggdrasil.

*And for extra fun value, Godzilla and some of the other monsters had been looping for a while as well.

Doesn't seem that problematic to me. The design is perhaps a little Legends-influenced, but given things like the Classic tail tip, I don't think it's enough to matter. It's a guy drawing his idea of "Spyro", which has elements of both series.
Now, if it were Cynder...

But it's been deleted anyway. But still, the group IS called Classic Spyro for a reason.

Hey, I heard you are a fan of David Weber's Honor Harrington series, and done a MLP crossover with it. I'm going to start reading both the series and your crossover sooner or later, so here's something I found on DeviantART you might like: a re-imagined designed of HMS Fearless of the Royal Manticoran Space Navy, assuming of course you haven't already faved it:


By the way, have you considered bringing it up for one of your MLP Loops?

Well, the crossover's come up at one point -Twilight hankers after the TMS Harmony from the crossover. But it's basically that the Honorverse is a little too bloody for the MLP Loopers, and they have the capability to stop it.

I wrote up two little segments for MLP Loops - should I PM them your way for your consideration?

I tend to prefer people post in the MLP Loops thread on spacebattles (thread 5 currently) just to make it easier on me.
