Just thought I would share the latest flight testing video of the Martin Jetpack. It is now actually showing a useful level of performance.
He should take that sweet little motor of his, and put it in a motorcycle, then I'd buy one :)
But I thought they already flew about 5000ft?
looks like he has some drift.... send him the compass correction code! :)
According to their website they achieved the following demonstration:
Still remote control only. Let's see him gamble his iphone on it.
That's the problem. Any loss of power means major injury or death. You need to be at high altitude for the chute to be useful. You can die falling from under 100 ft.
Jack I believe the system is completely computer stabilised. The ground pilot is providing pitch, roll, yaw rate and vertical velocity set points.
