Can Virage do this?
I want to make a homemade jetpack. I have a small workshop and have all supplys,
My friend also has a fire extinguisher supply shop he will give me the needed parts,
My question is ; The virage 2004 water pressure will be enough to take me up about 6-7 meters(23 feet)
Has anybody tried it; If I will do it, (I think I can) I will share you all the data and drawings,
Also I will be glad if you can share your experiences.
There is a sample diagram below. The tags are water jetpack ; jetlev if you want to search; also there is 3 topic in forum

dude keep up :0)
you'll need allot of thrust. id say you'd need a blower to get torqure. i doubt a 2 stroke virage will do trick.
keep us posted tho

I wish to beleive 2 stroke virage do same as 150 hp seadoo 4 stroke; I have noticed they do this with 200 hp ,but never
had full throttle; that means 150 hp 4 stroke & 95 hp 2 stroke will be the same
Can it be ?
Please check thats a homemade model

Does any body knows (virage) how much pressure can give the nozzle at full throttle will it be more than
400 lbf (1950 N) ?

the 95hp 2-stroke wont like the constant load. (you get the power at full throttle) and the huge resistance on the long compressed water feed to the jet pack aint guna help. 4 strokes and esp compressed 4 strokes have bucket loads of torque AT LOWER REVS, and as for the thrust, polaris runs a 148mm jetpump. the seadoo units are much bigger.

You seem right,but I have mixed up when I searched this !
The photo has been taken in Turkiye, The fire department made a show lifting the car with water power,
The car is 1380 kg and there is 6 trucks giving pressure; each truck has 120kw ~ 160 hp lifting power.
Total is 960 hp for 1380 kg~ 3042,3 (pound US) : with the calculation Iam 85kg ,, 60 hp is needed for me to lift up at 4 meters;
