For the thrusters, there are some quick disconnect hose connectors that use a sleeve and spring loaded bearings...if you can get them incorporated for you to Still aesthetically work then your set: they'd be able to pivot AND be removable.

Yeah, I know what you mean kinda like on a air compressor hose, it might cost a bit more to get the and Im not ure how to attaché them as the thrusters fit into the pack.

I think I will use a threaded end cap glued into the male part of the thruster with a thread inside the pack then I can just screw thm in.

I was thinking about that in PVC as well... You just want to make sure that when its screwed on all the way that the thrusters are on straight or at least even :x

The advantage to pivoting thrusters is you can turn them a bit so the jet pack can stand on its own in some cases...other than that you have to worry about them getting crooked on you >.<     I guess if you have other mando'ad around they can help you avoid such things from happening, but usually they can be a pain if your trooping alone or with arouriice :/

Alright I still haven't been able to get the Jetpack on my back but I am getting closer.


Mounting hardware installed;



Some weathering done;





Still need to attach the thrusters, beacon, and antenna, then finish sewing the harness hooks. I've got three more weeks to Mtl Con, It will be ready!

If you've got three weeks you'll get those last little bits finished off easily :)

Woohoo! Finally someone noticed  ;D

I am really happy with it.

Tracyn, you'd think that three weeks is long enough but between my little league team, work, and redoing my sons room, well time is ticking but it will get done.
