tanks mounted on a form-fitting strapped fibreglas jacket
or corset worn by the rocket belt user. The middle tank
contain the pressurizing gas (nitrogen) while the other
two hold the fuel (hydrogen peroxide). Jutting from the
tanks and leading outward at each side of the operator
are curved pipes with the small nozzles protruding downwards
on each end, while two other, smaller pipes protrude under
each of the operator's arms and have motorcycle-like handle
grips for the throttle and directional control. For safety's
sake, the operator has to wear coveralls, a crash helmet,
and boots. The propellant is 90% hydrogen peroxide. High
pressure nitrogen gas is turned on by a valve at the side
and forces the peroxide over a small, built-in catalyst
bed which decomposes the peroxide out through the nozzles
as a powerful, non-combusting steam exhaust. Pitch and
roll are controlled by movements of the operator's body.
