Z-6 jetpack made from scratch
« on: Apr 24, 2013, 03:39 AM »
Recently, some of my friends have asked me to do the Z-6 jetpack.
Previously, I made Z-6 for my son. The effect was quite good:





 After analyzing a number of reference images, plans, drawings I made technical drawings with my own solutions.
 Objectives of the project:
 - Moving side nozzles (adapted for use servo)
 - Removable rocket with automatically opening wings (or adapted for use servo)
 - Flashing beacon
 - Size: width 16". No 15" or 16 "75. Size of 16" is perfect for all users.

This is first photo of my jetpack. Really :). Of course it is hidden in this stuff :).

Can't wait to see the progress on this. The talent you showed on your helmet build was top notch so I'm sure this will turn out to be stunning too!

Today afternoon I received parts which were cut by laser plotter.
I made technical drawings and for plotting all parts are vectorised in Corel Draw.

Niabi. Also 1litre of cola and 3D glasses ;D ;D
Byrek. I want to make molds, because my 2 friends ordered Z-6. If You will want jetpack, it will be possible after CEII.
One of ordered jp MUST be ready before CEII (BF ROTJ version). So I'll show You it in real.
Now I offer only my T-rex helmet (also in dented version) and (in future) mando pilot helmet. I'm preparing it for me for CEII, but some of vode are interested to get it.

Contrary to appearances, I worked on these xmas balls without singing xmas carols.
Xmas Eve spirit I reduced to the one glass of Ballantine's (40% of spirit) .... :)


Plastic xmas balls for side nozzle heads.

So... next step. Yesterday I received first part of pieces made by "my" turner. They are made of alu and polyamide and are waiting for silicone to make molds.
Some news in corpus of jp. Alu tubes are put on corpus for try.
