Can´t the Senshi fly? Why isn´t that power more explored?

They fly hundreds of thousands of kilometres in seconds to the Moon, at speeds that would actually make time dilation an issue for them, the wavelengths of light shift a bit and so things are discoloured somewhat, and the Moon literally look thinner to them enough to be noticeable to the unaided human eye. But yet this power is rarely touched on.

At least it would explain Usagi´s caloric intake. :)

Not sure which continuity you're referring to, but I think the consistent limitation is that it requires the combined power all five Senshi for it to work.

Yes, they can fly. They don't seem to be able to independently in the 90's version....except for the openings where they are seen flying all over the places like fireflies in space.

I thank Crystal for showing this...also showing that they can teleport without the full team present.

In both the manga and Crystal, flying is something that they can just do, but it's not used to the same extent as, say, Superman's ability to fly. They mostly just use it for levitation purposes.

When traveling to the Moon, however, in any continuity, that's treated less as actual flight and more as a form of teleportation, albeit non-instantaneous. It's a form of their "Sailor Teleport" ability, which is sometimes presented as an instant disappearance from one location and reappearance in another, or sometimes as a non-instant form of transportation. The latter was best displayed in the R movie.
