    May 1, 2004, 3:04 PM - Price check in aisle 5..... #1

    Hey guys, just got a quote on a jet pack & stll sitting on the floor... I know the best stuff has got to be RA 'n MB (though it sounds like MB's MIA) but an RA @ $500 or $550???

    Whoa, may be a newbie but that's out there...

    Has anybody tried SFP's???

    Has anybody got any good suggestions for stuff about 1/2 the price above??

    You may want to check on ebay for a kit. They tend to go for around $300. You also may want to try the Cargo Hold.

    When I got my RA jet pack it was $600 so it sounds like you're getting a bargain Consider this: It is fiberglass,completely assembled and very accurate.......spot on to a DP statue jet pack

    I got one, It is a great pack and pretty much ready to paint and go.

    I love mine and I wouldn't go with any different.
    I have had everyones packs within the past year except MLC's and
    RA's beats them all IMHO. I sold my new MB pack within a week after I got it after I compared it to my RA pack. Don't get me wrong, MB's pack is a great pack, but RA's JP is bigger and nicer.
    As mentioned above GA is a good one to get.

    ...insert shameless plug here-

    A MLC fiberglass jet pack comes sanded smooth and primered gray. Access to harness loops is through the removeable access panel.

    Rocket and thrusters use a large "peg" to not only secure them, but allow removal for storage.

    It's sturdy, and weighs only 4lbs.

    And, it's alot cheaper too!



    PM me for details...

    RA told me once that the reason why he charges so much for his packs is because he hates making them. They are very time consuming to build, and since "time is money," well, you get his point.
