    Neat item. Range 31 miles at 65MPH using 5 gallons of fuel...that's not bad.

    The word "recognized" was spelled "recognised" on their website.

    I used their contact tab and let them know that I caught a spelling error and would they give me a free jet-pack since I found a mistake on their web site.

    I like it certainly better than the Bell Jet Pac of the 1960s, it only gave you about 30 seconds of flight time.

    Can you imagine the Tool Time episode, if Tim the tool man Taylor got one?

    Mythbusters tried a similar ducted fan design and failed. But it was based on a specific design off the web that was too weak. The thrust/weight ratio is pretty lame on this (600/535) and the video only shows indoor, low-level flight. I'm willing to bet most of this flight is hovering in ground effect. If they tried for high altitude, I think this thing would falter. Not enough power to adjust for wind gusts, etc. Although they "estimate" a ceiling of 8,000 ft.

    Yep, I could see it. That's when I'd run out of gas.

    A ballistic chute is standard so you'd be OK. Maybe

    As high as you're willing to fall, actually the spec sheet says 8000 feet estimated.
