if worse comes to worse, it makes a good backpack. scout trooper packs are about that small.

It may look a little small but I think it looks awesome. You could put two side by side and have four jets? Haha.

what about two of the bug, cut off one "jet" side on each(left on one, right on the other) and you would have a spaced pack.  I love the look either.  I might want to marry this 'pack idea.

I saw one of these at a thrift store near me and was so close to buying it, but I already had 2 jetpacks in the making so I decided I didn't need it.

I have the blue bug like that and im relativly small (5'5") so i think if i mod this up alot itll work as a full size pack for me due to my small size

I'm sort of horrified...like we just wore the same suit to the prom or something, lol. 

I found the same thing at a thrift store over a year ago and am using part of it as my pack, too.  Mine is pretty cannibalized at this point, though, just the 30 percent of it will be built into the backplate.  I'm small, but it's still going to fit like a small sniper pack that's locked into the plate. 

At first it looked easy to use, but it's become fairly complicated on my end.  Can't wait to see how yours turns out!

Maybe use it in junction with some boot/calf mounted thrusters?
It would 'explain' why the main backpack thruster is smaller.
