I see Jet project mentioned. Here is my version :-)

that's a great pic. just from the tease point of view, as so much is left out of frame. I assume it is a balloon with a custom exit point on it? and you with the engines on your legs...how did they work? we are left to guess.

I've been jumping the WinX 120/135/150 and 210 (WS Jet stuff) and have over 4500 jumps without a cutaway or issue with openings. It has a good glide, is fun (assertive) in flying, and has an actual flare where you dont need a surge or front risers to have a decent landing. And swoops nicely as well (though low, as it has a very fast recovery arc:) I couldn't be a bigger supporter/fan of the canopy if I tried. 

I think best advertising for the WinX is that (Atair) doesn't do any real advertising, and it's incredibly popular. Seeing practically no WinX for sale on the 2nd hand market, is a good indication people are happy with it.

You silly goose, I have one, through you!!! lol.  And I love it.

It is not a balloon, but rather powered parachute (aka paraplane), with shelf mounted on the side for convenient exit.

400N * 2 jet engines attached to snowboard boots.

I had technical issues which prevented engines to start in flight. These will be resolved soon.
