Ooo, shiny :D. I considered building a metal jetpack, but scrapped the idea because of weight concerns. Looks like you're off to a good start.
A metal jetpack is ridiculously heavy. You'll only be able to troop in it for about two hours. Try a sintra or fibreglass jetpack. It would be lighter. Unfortunately, not as bulletproof as metal, but it's very durable.

On my 407th year atop the mountain began a period of terrible nightmares. Scenes of death and destruction. I did not sleep for 20 human years. I sought the council of the great Master.

"Master, you teach me the hidden techniques in a bid to make me a great warrior. Yet I can not sleep due to the sight of death, of destruction. I feel uneasy. I simply lay awake."

He replied in a whisper:

"You feel awake... alive, at the sight of battle, and you doubt your skills as a warrior?"

I built this before I started brazing/welding, so I smoothed the edges using JB weld and sanded the heck out of it.

Yes, there is a pressurized CO2 system inside.
