    Hey guys, I'm looking to produce a child size jet pack, sized to fit an 8 to 12 yr old.
    I currently produce my own kit based off of WOF's templates. The "base" of the pack measures about 15"X15".Click image for larger version.

    Question to all, What size should a "child size" pack be? 10"X10"? 12"X12"?
    To keep build time and cost down, The smaller pack would loose about 20% to 30% of the adult size pack detail(keeping 70 to 80 percent).
    I have provided a photo for reference to the adult size
    What would we as parents, spend for child size pack? (Of course this opens up a whole new set of questions back to me).
    Just trying to get a feel here, is there any interest?

    I would think the 12x12 would be about right.

    The price would be tough but I would think about a 100 for an unfinished kit.

    Well, pending the size of the cat, I have 10 bottle rockets and duct tape

    Ha! That was good! I would think 12x12 would be good. I am going to be making one for my son probably out of tubes and cups and such. (In theory!)
