    We almost love that people think this is a stunt! It’ll make the next few weeks all the more sweet as people realise the innovation at play here.

    As far as I understand, jet engines are used for aircraft models. What is the thrust of one engine?

    I feel like they should of kept the boots as well as the rear end one’s more power and more direction control

    I don’t understand why people are saying it’s impossible. Each of those jets gives him 22kg of vertical thrust, and he’s got 6 of them. Now I’m no mathematician but 132kg of vertical thrust is more than he weighs so it’s obviously going to push him up. I’ve been dreaming of making a jetpack since I was a little kid and I wish I knew how he made those jets so I could try make one myself. I think the people doubting him are upset and jealous that they don’t have the inspiration and determination to do the same.

    Title makes sense if it was from news channel, but calling yourself in 3rd person shows that head is bit in the sky.

    Sorry Marines, we know you hated COD jump packs, but now you get one to.

    Imagine that on a kid. He would fly pretty easily, but crash easily also…

    I wonder what that first moment of consistent hovering felt like to him… I’m very envious of that.

    I’m guessing all six turbines will be mounted in an array on a backpack structure so you can actually do something with your hands.

    What’s the exhaust temperature coming out of the turbines? 
    Is this like a standard compressor, combustor and turbine; gas turbine system?

    Not knowing that it was impossible, he went there and did it.

    i’m just trying to figure out what purpose will it serve other than…”i did it”

    I’m no aeronautic expect but if you wanna just lift yourself up putting 4 of those on hands and putting them at an angle is suboptimal. Perhaps putting 4 on the core (if possible) and one per-arm for balance would give stronger, stable, downwards thrust, while still keeping the maneuverability with the hands
    Still looks great – good luck man ! 😀

    Really, really amazing!!!! Anyone fly like iron-man in the future.

    This comment section has aged poorly
    The amount of people saying this was totally fake and then turning right around and also saying “b-but jetpacks have been around for decades anyway so it’s not a big deal” without a trace of self-awareness is staggering

    Nothing like patenting something amazing so that nobody else can spread tbe joy of flight suits

    Why do people keep beleiving this is fake as if technolgy like this if not better doesnt already exist

    The problem is he needs to wear a real exoskeleton suit because he does not have the strength to hold the jets in one position for a long time. Its like he is pushing down on the sides of two tables that are next to him and lift in self up. He would give out after holding him self up for a minute or two. A exoskeleton could be created and clutches could be engaged to prevent the arms from moving and the hands could pivot where he wants the jets to be aimed.

    nice progress, though the diameter of those fuel lines is too big to be burning efficiently. if you can ignite from the outside, the flame is too slow and you have room to up the cc pressure and velocity at the nozzle. Get some researchers on that. I’m sure you can at least double the thrust with the same amount of fuel. rods from the`hand engines to your back/waist so you dont need exert as much strength holding it down. just my opinion.

    Try adding an exoskeleton for stability. the more power you add the higher the risk for it ripping the operators limbs off.
