    Here are some pics of the nozzle fittings. I need to get another brass fitting and some braided hose to connect the two nozzles to the solenoid valve, but this is how the smoke will be directed out the thrusters.

    A big thank you goes out to Gator Fett and Jango Fett Jr for your awesome suggestions and help. I have almost completed my smoke blast from my pack. I should have it completely finished in the next couple of weeks. I utilized the basic ideas posted and made some modifications. Thanks again!

    Could you rig up some sort of dry ice thing back there where the smoke would come out of the thrusters? I don't have a jet pack so I don't know if that'd fit or w/e but yeah

    hmm... My thrusters are on a pvc pipe of about well, 2 cm in diameter at most, probably thinner, for the compressed air to get through and get sprayed out properly, would I need to put a hose through, or could I go along with drilling small holes in the pvc pipe at the thruster end?

    Just FYI, watch where that stuff hits. Ice will usualy form on what your spraying it on when those cans are used upside down and that ice that forms is FLAMABLE. I found this out when playing with one of those and sprayed the ice onto my jeans and then tried to melt it off with a lighter. To my suprise it burst into flame. I would assume all brands of compressed air cans like that do that, and Ive never tried that again to make sure, but I figured I'd give you a heads up. In fact it may even have a warning on the cans... Ive never looked...

    I think the cans do have a warning on them. I guess we just need to make sure the thrusters are facing down whenever we "gas" and all will be safe, lol.

    LOL! I know what you mean, cal.

    Still though, if someone HAD $200 to spare simply on making their jet pack spew smoke, then I would think that was the way to go.
