Move Over Flying Cars!

by Justin

We can't have one yet, but come 2014, Martin Aircraft plans to have a JETPACK ready for retail.  That's right, move over George Jetson and your boring flying car- because we're strapping a jet engine on our backs and taking the ride of all rides!  Here is a remotely operated test flight of their P12 12th prototype.  Unmanned...probably a good idea until all the bugs get worked out.  I'm picturing ditching the canoe and flying into the BWCA, landing at my camp site, portaging nothing.  Hey, just because I like the outdoors doesn't mean I also enjoy manual labor.
