I Made a Jet Pack! (ONE DAY BUILD)

I Made a Jet Pack!  (ONE DAY BUILD)

Let’s Jet going. Hey guys, I’m the Hacksmith and this is
Make It Real. Google just says the new pixel 3A, which is an amazing new phone
at a wallet-friendly price. And they sponsored this video to challenge us to
see if we can use a pixel 3a as a replacement for our expensive camera
setups during the filming of one of our epic projects. So for the occasion
we got a second jet engine to play with. Let’s make a jet belt real-life double
jump anyone. We’re gonna film the first half of the video as usual then for the
test we’ll be switching over to these pixel 3a excels shooting in 4k with
built-in stabilization. See if you can spot the difference. Alright so we have
two of the King Tech 3-10 jet engines now. So now we can do some kind of jet
pack, like that kind of evenly off each hip. So that was a handle you can aim it
down. Me and you should be able to jump like really high. We can mount that off
the hip quite nicely. We should probably start in CAD but there is some
mechanical workings we start with. We’re going to need to make a few shafts to
actually attach them to here that we’re gonna then weld to whatever we design
in Solidworks. Alright let’s do it. Alright to start we’re going to throw
everything into SolidWorks and start trying to figure out what this is
actually going to look like. So the part I’m designing a cab right now is what JT
is actually making on the Lathe. A few of the questions we have is how are we going to
mount this to the actual harness in a way that it’s actually nice and strong
but still comfortable for the person to wear. JT: Two, or maybe that’s the same three flat plates. Then it’s just a matter of weld, weld, weld, your done. James: So more like the how we’ve mounted the jet
engine in the past? James: Alright folders done, you can start plasma
cutting. James: I’d like to almost hammer this in so
it’s more conical. JT: See James knows what he’s doing,
he doesn’t need a vice. As I start to use the vice. James: Feels pretty good
alright and I’m pretty happy with this mount so let’s do it again on the other
side. James: Feels good. Feels strong. Installing Jet Engine. JT: That’s actually almost when you
want to handle. Ff we could get it closer that would actually be pretty
good. Cut that in half and cut that in half and bring it much closer. So we’re gonna
make this half blank so we get a bit closer to the hip. Jet engine! JT: Alright, that does look closer. James: We don’t want it too close to our body. Because we want a nice
comfortable handles for our jet pack we bought some cheap drills. JT: No we need
to do the Colin Furze thing and disassemble one drill with the other drill. James: Genius. I already attached one handle on
the trigger and this one’s the actual trigger got the wires. I control the
speed the jet engines. Some high-tech ski poles. James: To see how we’re controlling the
jet engines check out the circuit diagram at There are links in
the description below. So we’ve got all the components here and we’re just going
to plunk them all onto the harness. And we’ll be good to go. It is a lot easier to straight up. James: Ohh it fits. Guys be my jet
engines. And forwards. And death spin. James: Alright so now that we have the
suit assembled Riley my ward will be doing the first initial test you know
for safety reasons. Man this is actually terrifying I didn’t do full throttle but I’d be
willing to next time. We need a bracket. Where I can put
my hand there because you need to force it down with your forearm or else it’s
not it’s not good. Dave: Apparently you can mow the lawn with this. Alright so as a
result of propping my arms up on the starter motors the jet engines kind of
tried to suck my arms in and it damaged the skin on my arms so we’re gonna do is
we’re gonna make a bracket that mounts on top of the jet engine so that we can
actually have some comfort and safety Ben: Let’s try it on and see how it works. Riley: It’s a lot more comfortable. Oh that’s so comfy. James: Next up JT
our intern from South Africa will be trying out the jet belt. It’s his last
day here until next term. Evan: all right Neil you ready to take flight? I am. Let’s Jet going! You ready? JT: It doubles as a leaf blower. Alright that was freaking awesome it’s actually working way better than I
initially thought it would. We’ve made some minor adjustments but the biggest
issue we had was the Jets were sucking up dirt and grass so before we test
again we’re gonna have to build our very own video game set or as I like to call
it the ultimate jet belt part. James: Once again a huge thank you goes out to
Google for sponsoring this video which let us set up this ultimate testing
ground to make this video and like I mentioned earlier this next test will be
exclusively filmed using the pixel 3A’s in 4k resolution with built-in
stabilization. See if you can spot the difference in the quality. This is the
pixel 3A. It has everything you need in a phone for much less It’s got an amazing
camera with awesome features like hdr+ portrait mode and night sight. Just look at
this photo I took with night sight. The pixel 3A charges super fast and it lasts all day. With 15 minutes of charge you’ll get make for seven hours of battery life on the phone. One of my favorite features of the pixel 3A is that it has a headphone jack that allows me to plug in my music and listen to it wherever I want. My favorite part about
the Pixel 3A is just how fantastic this phone is. Alright so we’ve got the
jet belt all upgraded it’s time to do the big test but first I’m gonna put on
some safety gear because you should try this at home. Got my pixel mounted as my action cam. Ian: So we think the wires are
disconnecting slightly and then it causes it to cut out. Dave: We got that wire to
repair right here the wires for the fuel solenoid have been strained they haven’t
broken yet but that’s going to be a problem very shortly if we don’t deal
with that. Staring to get a bit more comfortable
with it. Still kind of terrifying, it’s literally two jet engines strapped to my arms. Owen: Yeah you almost
killed Evan you do realize. That was fun. Ian: That looks amazing! I even tried doing the sidestep. That’s awesome! So what happened was we actually ran out
of fuel it’s the one the jet engines flamed out basically and that’s why there’s
all that smoke. Alright we got a really dumb idea. Can I jump
on to this table wearing the jet belt and can I jump off
of it again. So I’ll just show you I can’t jump on do it without the jet belt. But let’s see if I can float on top. Your just so floaty down. James: Yeah it feels really cool and it’s just like whoop. Alright that was freaking awesome. Definitely getting a bit more comfortable with it so time to take some
bigger risks. I feet are burning. Black leather plus heat. Getting the
hang of it we did just get a noise complaint from the neighbors though so
we’re gonna have to cut filming. All right that’s all been fun and games
but let’s up the ante. In video games there’s always obstacles to jump off of
and jump on to so let’s add some more things to our little playground and see
what I can do these jets. All right we’ve made some improvements
and I want to welcome you to the ultimate jet park! Alright that was freaking awesome but
we’re running into some technical difficulties with the jetpack the the
kill switch seems to randomly be going off. Luckily both times that happened
during that test run I was standing on something if that happened mid jump
you’d see my initial crash where I just kind of tipped off the side because
literally when one engine dies the whole thing just goes foop. So we’ve got a bit more
work to do to get these back up and running but we have ordered a third jet
engine so make sure you subscribe and hit that notification bell this is just
the start. And a huge thing to Google for sponsoring this video check out the
pixel 3A links in the description below it’s an amazing phone and an incredible
price my team loves it I think you will too. it’ll help you get more done for
less with only 15 minutes of charge you have seven hours of battery life and the
camera is fantastic


Wooaa im like wow dude this is useless and totally unnecessary vid its made just becouse of googles sponsortship

powerloader arms :takes years to make and painting.
Jetpack:takes about one day to make.
Me: -_- seems le- this video was sponsored by Google.

If made more stable that would actually be a cool thing that would allow you to jump off a building and land with no problems

The super bright, white background is not the greateast idea, if you want to show of how "great" the smartphone camera is 😅

Not enough power, need a little more thrust .try to crank up the thrust vectors I am sure it will give you the little boost to high .

This guys has a resemblance to tony stark… and he is making jet packs? Coincidence? I think not!!! Hahahah enjoyed the video

I KNOW THE BEST IDEA double jump from doom or some else game edit: i just started the video and i will not delete this comment, i will be ashamed of this comment forever

Could this allow for wall running because of the fact it can lift a human with the help of a jump but with the constant force of running could it work

Hacksmith, I personally have been struggling on what I’ve been wanting to do for a career in my future, I am currently a 11th grade student at my school, and I’ve struggled with my medical career because my mom wanted me to do it, and I enjoy designing and drawing, but seeing how you created this belt made me think, what if we could design that belt small yet strong enough to allow people to jump up and scale buildings, or be able to jump up from wall to wall and continue until you reach the top of a building, maybe I’ll drop out of my medical class and start a career in design and mechanics, anywho thanks for giving me a great alternative to what my family had planned for me! ❤️

You did it or are doing it also I think the name should be the world HACKer or something like that

Like for the name

If a regular guy with limited resources is able to do this, i cant imagine what te government with virtually no limit in resources is doing in secret.

Non hacksmith fans be like: Elon musk is the closest person to Iron man

Hacksmith fans be like: hacksmith closest person to iron man

I waiting for this new gener of contents in this channel❤️❤️❤️ I watched all this video 4 times

Not to diss the Pixel 3a, but there was a clear color diffence. It seemed less vibrant from what you normally use (I'm guessing a red camera). To be fair, there is a large price gap. It's not too bad considering.
