Triple booster jet pack
« on: Aug 02, 2010, 09:29 PM »
Have started on my jet pack finialy found the base i was looking for and didn't know it.  You know you look at something and it just clicks in your head.  Well this did just that,  playschool toy the gas n mow mower.

Also found something to make the thruster cones too,  the top portion of vitamin water bottles.  They are pretty sturdy but I am going to reinforce them just for good measure.  And as the title says I am going to put 3 thrusters on the pac, the third would be an auxiliary.  In case you need a quick vertical assent or a bit more lift for carrying somethin or someone.  But heres the pics of what I have so far.

The tubes on the side are bird feeders I got at biglots in a 2 pack for 6 bucks.  Still need so pvc pipe to fill in the holes in the feedrs and tie the parts together at the same time.

Made a bit of progress on this project, got the pvc and did some hot glue work on it.  Here's how it stands now.
