Which is a better superpower, flight or invisibility?

There are some limitations on each superpower in this exercise.

With the power of flight, you can only carry as much as you normally can. Your top speed is 40 mph and when you fly that fast, you get tired quickly. Flying at around 10 mph takes about as much energy as walking. You have to rest sometimes.

With the power of invisibility, your clothes turn invisible with you and anything you can fit under your clothes or in your pockets turns invisible as well. Invisibility takes the same endurance as walking, so you have to rest once in a while.
