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

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.

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

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

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.

Here's some to look at.

I guess they will end up like this guy from a year or so ago. I guess he was at the inovation of it.

That bridge video was disturbing.

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!

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

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.
