Ingenuity has flown seven times now and I'm not certain but I think for at least one of the flights it traveled some distance and landed in a new site.

Perseverance has done some traveling as well.


  1. Which is currently further from their landing site: Ingenuity or Perseverance?
  2. How far away are they from each other now?

There's going to be a range limit for their ZigBee link, so either Ingenuity will have to keep up with Perseverance or Ingenuity will eventually left on is own incommunicado unless there's another radio out there that can be configured to speak ZigBee at 900 MHz.
