Hold me, I'm flying

This has absolutely nothing to do with computers actually. But I can’t help noticing that the company Martinjetpack.com states that they’re building a jetpack. And when you look at the video you get struck by two things. It’s actually not JET-driven, but it sounds like a lawnmower. And why does it require two guys running around holding the damn thing all the time? If you can’t fly it on your own, scrap the design and start over. (Now it’s three things) The landing gear, wouldn’t that actually disqualify it from the “pack”-category since it’s not possible to carry it around?
