Backed your project, but this has been tried before. Remember Skywalkerjets.com around 2005? http://www.engadget.com/2006/07/31/skywalker-jet-packs-in-development/
I do wish you luck but I see significant hurdles no one else has been able to defeat, and you even added an additional hurdle by designing a new engine which can take years to properly finish on it's own. I see the possibilities here, but you have a long road and will need a ton of cash. I hope it works out for you. Good luck guys!
Dieter, I wish you the best on this project! I always loved rocket packs and this just thrills me. I'm glad it has 400lbs of thrust because maybe some day I'll be able to fly it. I know you'll do great and I'm happy to be able to support you in this project. (Tim "Ollie" Cahoon )
We are not in flight mode yet. Only video we have is from our booth at the recent EAA show showing the Phase 1 jet vest. If that works, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your interest and support!
Do you have any flight footage, or something cool that we can spread through our social media channels to help drum up support?
