Forget fixed wing

This video clip of a flying man (on top of  a drone) was shot in Naples, FL - about 60 miles south of Sarasota -- saw nothing about it in the paper.  Shades of the old Buck Rogers!



Perhaps your next aviation adventure should lean in this direction!! 
 

he set a world record for distance traveled of 7,388 ft. The board has 4 small turbojet engines (used in RC model aircraft) for lift and 2 smaller ones on the side for stabilization. The backpack is full of fuel (not flotation).  There is a remote to control the vertical thrust. The control of the craft is through shifting one’s balance (along with a computer to aid in stabilization).”

This 5 minute video just in from an event in Naples, Florida.
Caution: This may blow your mind!

In about 1955 at an open house and airshow at Carlswell AFB,  they demonstrated this little gem.  Everyone wanted one, but alas____haven't seen one since.  Hope this one don't have the same fate.  I think it was called the Hoppi-copter.
