"Martin" is a dummy?!
Is this because of safety reasons or because e real person would be to heavy to be lifted?

#10 If you recall the episode, the Mythbusters used a 4 stroke engine which is much heavier than the 2 strokes engine Martin is using. Also, the drive system on Martin's machine is a lot more efficient and lighter than the flexible belt used on the show. Finally, the Martin Jetpack is about half the weight of the machine built by the Mythbusters because they use carbon fiber instead of aluminum.

You must also keep in mind that the MB built their machine is the space of a couple weeks while Martin have spent years on their design...

12. I was being sarcastic. I falsely concluded based on watching the Mythbusters episode as Mythbusters made the whole concept of being able to fly like this appear to be not possible given the current power to weight ratio available in today's engines.

I am glad it did not stop these guys from continuing onwards because I am sure they saw the MB episode and were probably told by alot more people (including myself) saying it was impossible due to it.
