I'm surprised they didn't show Ironman flying it. That is something I would not believe, unless I saw it in person. For one thing, where is the fuel supply?

The jetpack actually flies. But the last I read it would only carry about 20 second of fuel supply. JetPack Aviation | Leaders in Personal VTOL Flight

I'll stick to ground transportation. Something realistic, like this.

Be my luck that I would get going real fast and the blasted thing would crap out! Anyone remember the jet pack in the James Bond movie? Everyone predicted that they would sell like hotcakes. I'll stick with the hotcakes with syrup, whipped cream, and sliced bananas.

The fuels on his back. I thought it was a parachute, but it’s a fuel cell. I think he gets 10 minutes in the air .

Would be more believable if the engines were nearer chest high. Remember the guy with the wing backpack and twin model plane jet engines? That actually works and has a fair fuel capacity. It lands by cutting the engines and pulling a rip cord to deploy his parachute.

If this guy flips his ride, it drives him into the ground...too low for a parachute. Fun ride or suicide mission?

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I’m sure that’s everyones thought Tom. I can’t believe he stays upright . I seen another video of it and underneath it there is actually thrust vectoring. Pretty cool invention if you ask me.
Nothing Otis couldn’t design though
