    Jan 4, 2005, 12:30 AM - How much is too much? #1

    <font color="red"> How much is too much to pay for an unpainted jet pack? A maker I know whom you guys have said has good jet packs is offering me the oppurtunity to build it with him and help him do it. So I was just curious as to what a fair price would be?
    Thanks,

    I paid &#36;500 for my fiberglass kit, it was worth every penny.

    I have seen pretty decent rough jet pack kits that require lots of work go for &#36;275. But if you can get one assembled, trimmed, and primed for under 400-500 range I'd grab it, Yes Jet Packs are not cheap.

    I am going to try and build my own because I just cannot afford that, since I have been ripped off of a jet pack once already.

    It is missing the "piano keys," beacon, and stabilizer.

    Aside from that? It is my first JP...sniff, sniff. and it is all white! Just the way Ralphy liked!

    Where can I get piano keys (besides cutting a zillion little pieces of Sintra)?

    Yea that jet pack is the Bomb, the wait is worth it. Once you get it in your hands and you can pick it up with one finger you will laugh like a little girl. My friend has one of those propcollections pack and it weights a bloody ton!

    <font color="red"> I was just asking since I might be able to get mine at cost if I help the guy make it! Sound like a good deal to you guys?

    Thats why I have went out and looked,researched and found every thing I wanted. I'm not holding back on the cash Ive spent,,,oooooo around 1500, still ain't done yet. But thanks to ebay all the money Ive bought Fett stuff with came from stuff I sold. Might want to try it people buy all kinds of stuff.

    I bought mine about 9 months ago. I got it off of Ebay, it was an unfinished kit. The pack neede alot of work. I did not know this at the time. So I bought it. The total price was 325 with shipping. When I got it, the rocket was an oval shape. So it took me about a month to find a round rocket. The rocket was around 75. So after the extra rocket, paint, sand paper and two dremmel tool and other extras. In the end it probably cost me around 675 to 700.

    Here is a link to a pick
