    So i was walking around today and ended up in a narrow valley and a mountain in front of me.
    I had to run back, because i couldn't spawn my Sleip.

    After that i thought "why isn't there a Jetpack?" - Yes a Jetpack.
    (i know that there are TP chips and the new awesome Hillclimbing Hoverpod - but a jetpack would be "cool")

    It should count as a vehicle, that you spawn on the ground with some kind of foldable stand (it automaticaly folds as soon as you start to fly).

    Something similar to this: http://martinjetpack.com/ or like the original Bell Rocket Belt.

    But it shouldn't be for long flights, so you can fly for 1 or 2 minutes at full throttle and then you glide down to the ground. - So just to climb some hills without jumping into your Sleip (or a Helicopter) that you can't reach by foot.

    I hope that anyone likes that idea, because it would be real fun to fly around with them :)

    (sry for my bad english, just ask when you don't understand what i mean)

    Jetpacks would be fun to fly around with for sure, but I'm ok if it doesn't happen..

    When I am in a place where I can't spawn my flying vehicles I just think back to the days before we had any vehicles and had to run everywhere.

    (by the way, your English is just fine!)

    What I would like is a jetpack that you can wear while mining.

    @Calin: Thanks for the feedback on the idea ;) - I started to play the game in July last year and then had a long break until 14 days ago. And so i had not the chance to experience the game without vehicles. (i think that i would think your way, too)

    @Neil: I don't like the idea to wear it while mining. It should be a normal vehicle without any other advantage over other vehicles and other players that don't have it.

    Yes! I remember the days pre-vehicles. I got all the way around Calypso on foot when I started. You'd be surprised how many mountains you can climb if you try. ;)

    So very very true mate, I didn't even buy a TP Chip until a couple of years ago... everything was all on foot...

    I think the idea is good, but in my humble opinion it should be something that is a "last resort", or runs out of fuel really quickly or something... just to make it different :)

    Yep thats what i thought of :)
    So you can fly 1 or 2 minutes max (i think 1 minute would be okay) and then you have some kind of cooldown on it, because it is "overheating" :D

    It shouldn't be a vehicle that you can use all of the time.

    I found this on an ancient EU website while doing research a few years ago
