    Thats a nice kit!
    Is the rocket one piece or did you have to screw it together?

    The rocket, mounted on top of the jet pack, is separate as shown in the lower photo.

    It did not come with thruster cones, so I used air freshener tops. Please note that the air fresheners have caps that can be removed. Instead of just glue, these were screw mounted to the thrusters as shown.

    I would recomend phillips head screws, instead of the flat head seen here. They were very difficult, even with a drill, to install. The phillips head would have made this much easier.

    Ive seen a lot of people use a Covertech clip circle thing. It's what the Jedi use to keep their lightsabers on their belts.

    Okay, it seems to weigh about 6-8 pounds. The rpg is the heaviest. The silver piece on the thrusters is silver paint.

    Yup...

    Just go to www.goldenarmor.com and email the guy. He'll reply with a price likely within the day. I've ordered from him a few times.

    Hi! Is this jetpack kit from Golden Armor sturdy/high quality? Any problems with it? Good value compared to other kits? I might be looking at getting one. Thanks for any info.
