Cute. 
What is the speed?

At 500 MPH, one could get over a hundred miles in that 13 minutes (plus a bit of parachute time).  It would be an exhilarating way to start one's day with a morning commute.  If only it could be designed to take off and land like a Harrier.

How long until it will be militarized?  Jet Pack vs Drone???

I think it's 200 Kph , so only about 125 mph.

It proves the old adage: a piano can fly if you put a big enough engine on it.
