    It would be nice to have for so many things if it could be made hands free even better. I'm thinking 2 foot peddles that would be mounted so each one had 4 functions
    one would have up down hover by tilting your foot forward or back rotate that foot to the left to go to the left right for fight
    the other foot would be forward or back stop,and turn left or right. This would make it a useful tool for a lot of work requiring a person to be off the ground. The biggest thing would be it needs to have at a minimum of 4 hours flight time worth of fuel.

    the interesting thing is the rocket belt or jet pack has been around for a while although they were actually rockets using hydrogen peroxide first flown in 1961
    this one is an actual jet having 2 small jet engines with angular thrust nozzles

    I seem to remember there was a lot of legal battles over the original rocket belts, I believe someone was even killed over them (not while flying).

    That is something I want. Imagine the fun that could be had with one of these?
    I have a 1972 Land Rover Series III Truck Cab/Pick-Up and a 1962 Land Rover Series 2a Carawagon Camper.

    yeah one of the partners in an endeavor to manufacture them was allegedly murdered when things in the financial procurement went sour I think that was in Houston.
