This was made for Jetstar. We need a video of him flying this and we'll say that's why his name is Jetstar. The whole rollercoaster story isn't as good of a name history Jet...

There will be sooooo many restrictions on such things in the US... Think about JetSki and Snowmobile regulations, restrictions on use by time of day, location, etc... Now take all of that and up it in the air where it's no longer just obnoxious down on the waterfront or by the road, but above you and your house and your dog and your children, just waiting for some numskull to forget to fill his tank and come pummeling through your living room window and slicing your 5 year old's head off before crashing into your new 54" HD LCD TV... The WiiMote ain't got shit on flying motor heads!

This is a link about a pipeline explosion in Nigeria.

Damn, you're right, the web site is pointing to a different video now. Shucks, only Slinger got to see the greatness that is the personal jetpack. The rest of you will just have to wait the 10 years when it's finally released for public buying.
