Hmmmm. My Corvette may have just sold... Depending on the build time I could put down the 10% and then take a loan for the rest. I have no doubt that people would sponsor me, too... Flying around with a SubWay ad on my back or something. I highly doubt the bank would be willing to fork over $70 thou when I say "I wanna buy a jetpack".
Oh, if only.

You can buy an ultralight coaxial helicopter for $30k. And it actually works.
Also if those were true jets the "stabilizer monkeys" would have been on fire. That's one of the problems with true jetpacks, how to vector thrust without incinerating your legs.

Meaning, you can not take off from the ground, I think?

This one is "better" in that it he can fly without help. But 30 seconds flying time id kind of skimpy. The bell rocket belt, think james bond, and that video from the 50's/60's (?). Its the same type.

I think the first one was better, in that it could give some air time. Not prctical because of its size, and still needs major improvement, but a good start.
