vor'e....its amazing how the chain of inspiration works isn't it...but thanks for the tip about using parts from a model kit cuz ive had an Apache helicopter kit lying  around for a long time and am kicking myself for not thinking of using parts form it sooner.

Yeah Bud, inspiration is a great and wonderful bug that just gets into you. Though I am itching to get down to business with some stuff for my armor, but I have to wait for my next pay check to get more supplies. I am glad that the model kit idea helped I had thought about it because lots of sci-fi movies and television shows have utilized it to build ships and weapons in the past and then I was listening to some of the old podcasts and someone had mentioned it there for weapons so hey why not go with what works right. Again I love what you did. Keep up the good work. Buy the way because someone may not have asked how much did this project run you?

Looking real cool!!!!!  8)
great idea  :) Are there any pictures in which you are wearing the jetpack (such as size comparison)? Can I possibly use them on my Gam this idea? (Please excuse me, but English is not my main language)

I saw your finished product with you wearing it... and it looks a bit small to me.

Why yes... yes I do.   ;D

If I may quote.... "It's not a question of where he grips it! It's a simple question of weight ratios! A five ounce bird could not carry a one pound coconut. "

I know he's approved and all, and the jet pack looks great, but it just doesn't look like it could lift him off the ground.

For reference:

But as we know... it doesn't matter.  Since we are here to talk about jet packs.  And, I still hold to my original statement, it just seems a bit too small.  Not knocking the work or the design as it is very clever and original.  Just seems on the smallish side.

yea you have a good point..but since ive made it i think of it as more of a jump pack than a full on jet pack which is why it has the three thrusters which helps give it that quick boost needed to get me off the ground lol

Did the original pack have any electronics?  Cause it would be hilarious to see the thing in it's state now belting out "Backpack, backpack" from the show. :D
