    Optimus Prime is, so far, the only Autobot flier these films have shown. And he's done it with about four different sets of flight gear:

    - the parachutes in ROTF Shanghai
    - a jetpack from Jetfire's parts
    - the flight tech in his DOTM trailer
    - and his built-in rockets in AOE

    Which was your favourite?

    For me it's the Jetfire jetpack. It's a great homage to ARMADA, and it's touching that Jetfire gave up his life to assist Optimus.

    The DOTM flight gear was awesome too, it's my runner-up. But then that trailer was an amazing bit of tech.

    this is a REALLY difficult, but good question.

    i LOVE all three of them.. i say three because parachutes don't count as "flight gear" ..lol maybe "fall gear", but definitely not "flight".

    anyways. i love the jetfire armor, i think he looks the best with the jetfire parts.

    but then again, prime with a dual functioning trailer, now that is incredibly awesome. especially those giant arm guns. those were definitely bad ass.

    however, i voted for aoe.. there's just something about the elegant simplicity that i really enjoy.. but if i was able to vote for all three at once, i would.

    That DOTM trailer flight tech, though. It's beautiful. It really is.

    The AOE stuff was pretty sweet; the rest seem cumbersome and bulky by comparison.

    Everything about his DotM look was absolutely perfect.

    DOTM's gear should have more screen time.

    Parachutes don't count. You need to be alive in order for the "flight tech" to work lol.

    DOTM Flight Tech with the massive miniguns for the win.

    The way that they worked Optimus' classical trailer into making it a badass jetpack with blasters of death was awesome. I also liked how Optimus actually acknowledged his trailer "I need that flight tech!" instead of it just fading into the background like it usually does.

    Definitely DoTM.
    The fact they put his trailer to good use in a practical sense and as an extension of Optimus I really liked... and it looked really cool in all its modes. Only thing it was missing was Roller. :) 

    I'm a sucker for Optimus with his trailer though...

    I like all of them,

    The parachute scene in Shanghai was pure awesomeness, watching a Peterbilt fall out of a carrier plane :p 

    Jetfire's parts making him 'power up Prime' was cool, I did like it but it made him look fat.

    The jet pack in DOTM was the bee knees, it transformed into that long G1 trailer :p 

    AOE's jet boots are a cool addition to the Knight upgrade.

    I prefer both the G1 trailer jet pack and AOE jet boots. I voted for the jet pack though.

    While I agree, Optimus was alive during that scene. He's not talking when he was dropped from the plane in the desert, but in Shanghai when he went after Demolisher.

    Ok So Parachutes MIGHT be flight gear - if they're are the HAHO type packs- High Altitude High Opening/- You can fly 50+ miles jumping out of the Airplane

    Even though they came out of nowhere I did like the built-in rockets in AOE.
