absolutely insane!!! I want to get me a wing suit... and I guess a parachute too! And I thought wakeboarding was a rush.

snork 01-19-2009 7:35 AM

Calculated death, and whats the parachute for?

i have to say this one blows that one away. The guy jumps out of the plane with wings that unfold and has 4 turbine model airplane engines to propel him. <BR><a href="http://www.metacafe.com/watch/468993/jetman/" target="_blank">http://www.metacafe.com/watch/468993/jetman/</a>

nice one - I like that one too. I think the mellow music made it seem a little less dangerous though...lol

After watching that why do I think I havn't lived yet?

polkaking27 01-19-2009 1:13 PM

I don't think I would quite call those model airplane turbines, they have been pretty "modified"... but yea pretty B.A.

helinut 01-19-2009 2:51 PM

Those turbines aren't modified at all. I'm not sure what you meant, but you can buy those all day long. Only thing is the power supply and fuel which would be custom to the wing. <BR> <BR>Here's some to look at. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.composite-arf.com.hk/ar/Catalog?cat=16" target="_blank">http://www.composite-arf.com.hk/ar/Catalog?cat=16</a>

I guess they will end up like this guy from a year or so ago. I guess he was at the inovation of it. <BR> <BR><a href="http://video.basejumpvideos.com/video/Skydiver-Hits-a-Bridge" target="_blank">http://video.basejumpvideos.com/video/Skydiver-Hits-a-Bridge</a>

That first video is insanely dope!

proimages 01-20-2009 7:02 PM

That jet pack is not so bad either ; ) <BR>He just needs to rent Rocketeer to get some ideas for his helmet..worked on that movie.. <BR>cheers <BR>D

That bridge video was disturbing.

nick_scorny 01-21-2009 9:19 AM

That looks so dope. I'm tryin to do the wing suit eventually but from what i heard is you need to do over a 1000 skydive jumps first before your eligible. It's worth it though! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>

rmcronin 01-21-2009 3:52 PM

Yep, that probably is the wildest ride I've ever seen! Holy crap!

wakebrdr38 01-21-2009 5:48 PM

those arent highly modified model airplane jet engines. off the shelf, they are pricey but totally doable. I have a brother and dad that is really into model planes and they said they are stock, just really expensive good ones.

dkmode34 01-21-2009 6:20 PM

That first video makes me want to jump again soooooooooooooooooooo bad! WOW How sick is that! That music made that video twice as cool!
