I Almost Learned To Fly A Jetpack

Avaldati 16 nov 2020
Gravity Industries make jetpacks. They're not practical. They're not meant for mass use. But they are a lot of fun. They asked if I wanted to try flying one. Thanks to gravity.co/ - this is not sponsored but, obviously, they did give me a flight in a jetpack.

  • I am not Iron Man.

  • 0:23, my computer when there is 1 google chrome tab open

  • 1050 horsepower?!?

  • 🤔😍

  • His face in the thumbnail is perfect

  • Inside Edition wants to know your location

  • The difference between this and car / boat / plane racing is, that those are very dynamic modes of traveling but this is very static mode. There is a reason, helicopter racing is not a thing

  • That's some really impressing networking on the part of both Pad 26 as well as Gravity. Congratulations to both you!

  • Now I can collect the coins above the trains

  • I love!!!

  • Tom looks so happy this whole video

  • I saw Tom Scott flying over my house.

  • Imagine driving a motorcycle, where the front wheel of the bike is attached ONLY to your front arms? That would be crazy. Well, this jetpack is sort of like that = it's not going to be a success. Either put them all together in one spot (like a motorcycle is put all together in one package) or forget it.

  • Tom Scott is just out there living his best life.

  • Tom scott is the vsause of the uk

  • *looks at my fatass* "yep, wont be able to do that."

  • Tom's voice devolved to MW2 voice comms

  • 4:57 thats such a good point

  • @0:05; The Jet Pack Makers: "Okay, we made a Jet Pack, now we need someone to test it." "Not me." "Not me." "Not me either - but I know a guy."

  • While we get to be quarantined Tom gets to fly. Thanks 2020.

  • Seems like hard work and another 20 years until this is actually fun and worth while

  • “We’ve got jet pack wanna try flying it?” “No” *video ends

  • Absolute SoyFace

  • “I’m wearing five jet engines” is not a sentence I ever though I would hear in my lifetime.

  • Is it not really hard on the shoulders? How close to the exhaust before its harmful?

  • I love his development thought. I don't want more buttons and knobs and bigger computers. You are the flight computer. We're not putting you on a jet, we're giving you the tools and letting you learn your brain how to fly.

  • 2:00 are you sure it's not 150hp equivalent? They said 1,050hp equivalent

    • At those fuel burn rates, 1,050hp equivalent sounds far more likely.

  • Its a good thing they're not a microphone company.

  • Can you describe the physicality of the experience? That is to ask what sort of strength did you need, what was stressed, what might not be up to the job, how much fatigue was there?

  • bri' ish pog

  • So this is what happens when you shout ROCKETMAN at the top of your lungs in real life.

  • me when mom turns the corner to McDonald’s 0:56

  • What a dumb extravagance

  • His actual name is Barry

  • Her, seductively: what are you wearing tonight Him: 0:43

  • Thumbnail: Tom Spog/w jetpack

  • 0:37 when ur exam is postponed

    • 10 more laws to break in london

  • I can’t wait to see group tours of tourists navigating the city streets of Rome with jet packs.

  • I'm amazed that you don't cook your feet when you point the jet engines down your feet

  • Thanos: I am inevitable. Tom: I am here, at Germany's smallest house

  • now THAT is remarkable!

  • The hell did you manage to get a jetpack

    • I hate to say it but, it's not like the 'rona is a thing is it.

  • Kind of insane it takes 1500 horse power to lift up a person with a jet engine, but I am sure a single horse would be able to do that with a rope.

  • Is this the same guy who tried removing his fingertips with pineapples like 10 years ago??

  • This looks terrible in reality. Just look at his shoulders. Youd be screaming in pain after an hour of use. Extremely degrading on the rotator cuff. As well as lower back issues due to literally no support and inevitable whiplash. Shows no forethought and reveals this is just someone wasting investors money on what any engineering student would equate to an over engineered toy.

    • Damn. I got a notif about someoene tryna call me stupid because you cant run this for an hour. I see its deleted because even they realized they’re argument was hilarious. 1. It can be used more than once, just needs refilled. Same as arguing a car cant go more than a few hours. Just a simple refill. 2. If you cant fly it for any reasonable period of time, is there any practicality? Nope lmfao. I cant wait for people to look back on this 5 years from now and facepalm.

    • Why don't you try and make a jetpack

  • Bri'ish pog

  • everybody gangsta till u get bit by an ant in the hips

  • Tom's white face been helpin me clear smudges off my screen for years. goat.

  • just a worse plane, sick!

  • How is Newton's universal law of gravity proved to be a universal law - meaning it is true in any and every part of this universe - without Newton himself travelling to all parts of universe to verify?

  • How many red shirts do you own?

  • 10 more laws to break in london

  • Jetpack joyride

  • Is it me or does his voice sound cool

  • I love his enthusiasm

  • Teachers mic be like...

  • I hate to say it but, it's not like the 'rona is a thing is it.

  • I always thought Tom Scott was just a CGI character until now.

  • " money can't buy happiness.' Scott's face at 25 seconds says otherwise

  • Captain Marvel !

  • *Cheat activated*

  • I respect how long this guys been on youtube

  • almost


  • why is his voice so soothing

  • It's enermous energy to just fight against the gravity, every second. This energy contributes to global warming. So that's why flying is seldom a viable option for transportation

  • If tom dies before 2021. Im gonna scuicide

  • God im jealous, i really wish i could learn to fly. Very cool video.

  • I don't know why I can't explain it But The whole thing felt like an episode of The Office (the good one) that was about to go terribly wrong. Great vid.

  • It takes a lot of upper body strength. Like pushng your self off the ground with your arms and holding yourself off the ground.

  • rained a lot yesterday in Seoul, Korea. The cold winter began with the cold wind blowing. ; I hope health is always with you. Thank you. ^O^

    • Thank you kindly! And with you, mysterious stranger on The Internet!

  • hey, I want to ask seriously. Who is Tom Scott?

  • You were in a pewdiepie video

  • You tubers always get the best perks. I wish I could fly but that’s only unlocked with the youtuber expansion pack :(

  • “We were on the verge of greatness”

  • Haha I love Tom's Call of Duty Mic xD

  • That smile doesn't lie. You're in the right job.

  • I thought this setup looked familiar. Same guys who worked with ColinFurze.

  • Bri'ish pog

  • I've been watching too much tom Scott I dreamed a whole video about the worlds largest billboard

  • The jetpack reminds me of the one that the hacksmith made

  • Tom Scott is the best youtuber on the internet: - 2 second intro - Straight into the action - No clickbait - Everything that people want

  • Make it more practical and add winged flight!

  • “I think more power will kill me, but let’s try it.”

  • Next up: "My unlicenced Jetpack pub is technically legal"

  • alt title: a person with a 50 year old body stuck in a 20 year old personality flies 20 cm in the air

  • Looks fun till you drop out of the sky

  • Hello

  • This video has 629,727 views

  • Let's start a chain train: *Ground Control to Major Tom.*

  • This is the same guy who dropped 2 drums and a cymbal off a cliff


  • Tom Scott escaping area 69 with a jetpack

  • When you need ultra instinct to fly

  • Nobody: Me: hmm GTA vibes

  • yknow a minigun works better as a jetpack than mini jet engines right?

  • Imagine the jet hit hard and both of this hands went backwards

  • What people don't realise is personal flying machines already exist, I have one. They are

  • Looks like the ODM gear training swing from Attack on Titan. (I hope I did the acronym right 😎)

  • The microphone on the headset reminds me of the COD MW2 Lobby over the riot shield
