acefox1: Poor Mythbusters. You guys were so close!Their ducted-fan jet-pack looked almost exactly the same. In a kit-bashed, garage-welded kind of way. Just needed moar power I guess.
studebaker hoch: So no engine out capability, got it.And if you lose just ONE engine, or if it tips over on takeoff or landing, you are now strapped to a giant one of these:[www.hhfireworks.com image 400x362]
Emposter: timujin: Emposter: Sgygus: This could make my commute easier.If you live 8000 or less feet from your work, you don't HAVE a commute. You have a brisk 20 minute walk.It goes to an altitude 8000 feet, that's not its range.Not claiming to be an engineer, but if the thing can't glide, (and it can't) it should need (nearly?) as much downward thrust going horizontal as vertical. It probably goes farther on the parachute than on the actual jets.
