Well I wasn't ultimately happy with it, so I went back to work on it some more. I added some more pieces and decided to scrap the rocket completely. I ordered a Death watch rocket from EA which should fit into the PVC perfectly. I spruced it up with some more color as well and plan to add some side thrusters. The hole in the front will house a switch that will turn on a LED light near the top. I also plan to add a Beacon.

I also fashioned some thrusters out of some Christmas ornaments, 3/4" PVC, and $1 bird houses from Michael's

Thanks it has been a fun build. This is what it looks like now with the completed Thrusters. The Red part in the center of the ornament is a beer pong ball I sliced in half and hot glued to the Christmas ornament. That center circular part covering where the hole used to be is a plastic stake from a slip and slide. I cut it down and hot glued it in place. Just waiting on the Rocket to get here and I plan to add a pulsing Beacon later down the line. The trickiest part will be figuring out how to do the harness to get it attached to me.

haha wauw so cool. now I want to scratch build a jetpack :D because taking a beer pong ball for a jetpack is just epic :D

the only thing I worry about is assembling it my back. seen so many different approaches. magnets, harness. screws you name it.

Well it really depends on how heavy it is. My pack is pretty substantial, I haven't weighed it but I imagine its closer in weight to one of my guitars, maybe about 8 lbs. My pack is  a combination of PVC, carboard, wood, plastic and metal. Could probably have shaved a few lbs off by skipping on the wood in areas.
