I forgot to say, it isnt even a ‘jetpack’.

they r not jets, they r just some sort of propeller.  The fuel only powers these, it doesnt burn up within the cylindrical compartment that looks like a jet engine.  So therefore it is not a jet engine.  god knows how its powerful enough to gain lift.  Im no engineer though, i know nothing about mechanics, but it must be the way the propeller pushes air through a smaller diameter circle.

anyone here know engineer stuff?
