Thats got to be intense

its just falling with thrust, it doesnt have vertical climbing flight yet, still cool

Did you watch the same video I did? i.e. 01:26+
10 years ago
Oh, I forgot, you may want to go literally vertical... And landing capability would be nice as well.
10 years ago
The G's would rip the wings off along with parts of your shoulders.
10 years ago
Who needs shoulders?

Whiddler, you're a fucking idiot. Die.

COBRA invented that thing back in the 80's.

Yeah, I remember the trouble bubbles, and the televipers, with backward writing scrolling over their visor... good times...

Pretty fucking cool. At least until a misplaced condor smashes you in the face at 100 MPH and your neck gets 3 inches shorter.
10 years ago
Misplaced? "OK Who put that fucking bird in the sky?!"
10 years ago
Those motherfuckers don't belong up there!!
10 years ago
Dude, you hit a condor, and your not going to have a neck.
10 years ago
Actually, any type of disaster would make this even cooler.
10 years ago
I'm sick of these motherfucking birds in this motherfucking sky

You think a terrorist will ever use one of these to slam into another building?

Somehow I think this eventually will have a Darwin Award associated with it.

All $600 does is remind people of how screwed they are.
10 years ago
i used my check last week for a full tank of gas....thankyou :(
10 years ago
Ugh, I know the feeling. I spend $160 a week in my cab. Personal car is another $50, but thats still not as bad as in the EU. I believe gas is $8 in Germany.
10 years ago
It's now $10.24 where I live in England. :(

I'm calling fake. If this was actually jet engines, his legs would be completely fried.
10 years ago
He probably adjusted the thrust angles accordingly. Plus, those little turbines dont move a whole lot of air, so the jet wash probably isn't very big.
10 years ago
Problem?
10 years ago
Then again, I may not have a fucking clue what I'm talking about... You be the judge.
10 years ago
...yeah, I'm going with the second option.
10 years ago
I do know what I am talking about. There are mini-turbines on top of the wings. This was featured in Popular Science or Popular Mechanics, cant remember which.
10 years ago
Fake. No way in hell he had enough fuel on/with him to complete it.
10 years ago
That's the other thing I was wondering about, but I don't know anything about the fuel efficiency of modern jet engines.
10 years ago
It was only five minutes of flight. Fuel is stored in the wings.
10 years ago
You know what you are talking about because you read it in a magazine? That's pretty pathetic.
10 years ago
It's not fake, but it's nothing new. Like 30 years old, but their was no practicle use for the technology.
10 years ago
fuck! *there*
10 years ago
Don't forget "practical"
10 years ago
all you people who are crying "fake", check him out & see for yourself. this IS the internet, after all...
10 years ago
and then you can eat your fucking words.

Godzilla is a cynic :P

He didn't have sex with anyone...wtf?
10 years ago
I'd rather have the convience of a reclinable seat and a bathroom.
10 years ago
If you can call those "reclinable"
10 years ago
I don't see anything wrong with the bathroom arrangements that are offered with this. Just pull down your pants and leter' fly, no pun intended.

i really wanted to see how he lands - into a lake ??? or just hit the ground running ???
10 years ago
did you watch the video? he uses a parachute you gormless twat.
10 years ago
