Back to the future with the X-Jet

Back to the future with the X-Jet

(4:24) This is not science fiction, but science fact from 1974. Personal transport that took off well in the air, but not commercially. It's what the Segway should have been.

The noise must be phenomenal. Still, better than a jet pack.

Perhaps someone will now investigate and resurrect this idea. More than 35 years of technological improvement could probably make this a cheaper/quieter machine with 21st century applications.

Because it is fake..Do you realise the size of engine required..No sign of propellors and not enough room for a propellor,engine and fuel tank. Helicoptor wires can easilly be taken out of a frame. Believe me if it was real Americans would be flying around for recreation in them.
