Ornithopters, commonly 'thopters, are the basic means of travel on a planet.

A 'thopter is any aircraft capable of sustained wing-beat flight in the manner of birds. It resembles a bird or an insect and flys by either wing-beat or by jet-propulsion.

They are most often used by the wealthy of the Known Universe. However, they can be formated with lasguns and shields for use in battle.
