Human Flight

Post by Freedomforall »

This is uber neat! It is similar to a jetpack. Human flight is getting closer.

What a jolly stocking-filler for christmas. Just what I always wanted, Santa. Must trot down my local Lidl's center aisle and see if they stock fuel for the things.

I Suppose flying that would be a form of up-skirting

Really cool, but for how long and how high before fuel runs out and you drop like a bag of flour??? The stress on your arms and shoulders would seem like it would be excessive.

Tom, is there a peat briquette fuelled version for you? How many briquettes per hour of flight?
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

Naw Dennis,

Briquettes would be far too heavy to give a useful range. I've changed my mind and opted for a couple of electric rechargeble models instead. The other advantage is they'd be a lot quieter and I'll be able to converse with MOH as we fly along...... :idea: :cyclops: :eye:

I think it was the Royal Marines experimented with a boarding of a vessel underway with one of those.

Not aware of that particular experiment but not too surprising as Richard Browning, Gravity's founder, was in the Royal Marine Reserve for six years.
Here is Richard's bio for folks who may be interested.
