Jetpacks in Dubai with some spectacular images, all in 4K
  • Jetman Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet soar over the city of Dubai with jetpacks in incredible footage from the short film “Young Feathers.” The film focuses on Rossy and Reffet as well as the jetpacks they have developed which fly with an average speed of 200km/h and can maintain flight for up to 13 minutes.

  • This is seriously impressive, both for the technology and the level of filmmaking. Thanks for sharing!

  • meh - it looks good and Dubai makes for a cool backdrop, but what's the point?

  • Robert, are you seriously asking what's the point of developing jet packs? If you could go back in time would you ask the Wright Bros what's the point of an airplane? Of course right now they aren't practical, but tech rarely is when it's first starting out, the first airplane only flew a few minutes, was highly dangerous and had no practical purpose, but now the world as we know it couldn't function without flight...Or are you asking about the video, which seems to be for building awareness, probably to gain funding...or just to document something really cool that's happening in the world of aerospace. You might as well ask what the point is of any documentary style film...did I just get trolled?

  • A year later, a bit of informal talk in which one gets a sense of the production context and scale, as of some info 'bout aero-cinematography, mod planes, risks, planing&timming, gear, crew, etc. no petro$ accounting though :P
