Sweet, although they can only hold enough fuel for a 20 second trip.

Actually, the company that manufactures (yes, manufactures, for a mere $200,000, you can own your own!) these things has a model that is capable of up to 9 minutes of flight. One of these would be sweet!

I think i could make one of these with a few bottle rockets.

At one point, the military thought about using these, but decided they weren't very effective.

I know this doesnt describe it too well but flying around like that would make you a sitting duck. No cover, so youd be pretty much fucked - proper fucked!

83 mph?

shit, i'll have to fly with out pants, just so i don't shit in them.

9 minutes at 83 mph? that's more like 15 miles, not 11. Max height is surely the point where you chicken out, and 200 grand is a bit steep for a turbine and a set of handlebars!

fake! you could easily see the strings!

why else do you think the helicopter didn't fly over top of him?
10 years ago
to chop him up i thought

The line was attached to the chopper... so fake ! or maybe it was a rope over the canyon or maybe it was a big fan blowing underneath him... or... oh, it was a cartoon all along.

i woder where i could go with one of these

i don't think you'll make it to the beerstore.. but you can make a cool entrance at your local shopping mall or something.
10 years ago
too bad you will have to take a taxi home since it only has nine minutes of flight time... unless the mall you go to sells jet fuel
10 years ago
is there a mall that doesn't :S?
