I thought I had to do this TED talk which was the “predecessor” to the one I did yesterday. Similarly, mini gas turbines were used, but Yves Rossy employed them in a Jetsuit and uses them to manoeuvre after free-falling from an airplane mid-flight, allowing him some form of control over his pitch and direction.

If you ask me, Richard Browning’s looks cooler simply because it is more “Ironman” like. But the feeling conveyed by the videos shared by Yves Rossy is very, very good, more like the bird flying type of experience as opposed to the hand thrust powered flight for Richard Browning.
