Maybe they can use it to blow the dust off the Rovers solar panels?

Why not use dirigible balloons like zeppeling tied to the rover so that the wind does not carry it and lose it. The rover can bring him back when he needs it. the rope can be large as possible and back to the rover using electrical winch. Will have control, less energy, more time flying. The height control will be little complex with temperature but technically solvable.
