Really? Can you provide the video? I haven't seen it before. I just opened up IE, and BAM a video of some guy with wings flying around. I was astounded.Thats pretty old. The problem with him is that he has to jump out of an air plane then deploy his wings. ( saw this in another video)

Sorry but I saw it a year back on ESPN I think, that or discovery channel. Also I didn't see the exact video I saw the video of a guy with the same wings jet prepeled.Old? Saw that just today on TV, said he worked the last 5 years or something on it, but never really got this far.

Just think about it, how would he be able to launch off the ground, it's not like he has wheels like actual planes, and I doubt that thing has enough power to just sky rocket him in a horizontal position up.
Good point, but from the look of it the wings I don't think they can store enough energy to power up a thrust from the ground into the air and be able to fly like that guy did.Honestly I figured it was just like the harrier. You stood up straight, the jets produced the thrust needed to lift off of the ground, the person, and machine being light as it is, should be easy to get you sky rocketing off the ground. The only thing I could see posing some what of a threat is landing. But I'm sure with practice and skill landing on your feet is easily done.
Ah, you know i was thinking the same thing.Good point, but from the look of it the wings I don't think they can store enough energy to power up a thrust from the ground into the air and be able to fly like that guy did.
What I've seen in the old video is the guy jumps off the plane and his wings are overlaped, then they go straight.
This is why I'm worring about it getting itself off the ground by itself, since the take off takes alot of energy.
Yea I can imagine what would be the result if he'd actualy have the power and atempt to thrust off the ground now. Like Iron man did when he was designing Mach II/III in the movie.Ah, you know i was thinking the same thing.
Not to mention I was wondering where all the fuel was stored. Generally the fuel is stored in the wings of an aircraft. However, the wings on the man flying seemed to be a little too thin for fuel storage. Unless he doesn't use gasoline. I'll have to look around for another video.
I found the video you were talking about
Now if only they can find away to take off from the ground, and land without a parachute (but keep on on just incase of course )
The video's Nix and SSJ4 showed where impressive as well. Though I'd rather have flight out of strength. Unless you can incorporate both into one machine
