Custom Orbital Drop jetpack from Red Fist
« on: Sep 21, 2014, 01:38 PM »
Greetings, vode!

I'd like to introduce our brand new jetpack made speacially for orbital dropping forces. I had the idea of this concept long ago. And yesterday I pick up the pencil and draw some sketches. I won't show you these ones   :laugh:
But our great friend gnomKolin has adapted my drawings and... here it is!



Also he had builded the 3d model of this device. Together we've made some design edits. In November I'm going to start building process of this device.

side view


bottom view


rear view


wings can be turned down

Can't wait to see it finished. I have to confess, I'm a big Red Fist Fan. All I have seen of you guys lately is just amazing.

Oh wow, now I would love to have a JP like that with a pressurized CO2 system installed.   :)

It will  be great if you'll craft this JP ;) we have shared pep-model here. It is  rather simple for assembling, check it :)

Of course, some of the functional ties are needed to craft manually, but... we all can do it :)

It would not be difficult to incorporate 2 small pneumatic pistons into a CO2 system to open the wings.  Their weight would close them. 

*gears are turning*  :)

Try to use Pepakura Designer or Pepakura Viewer.
