Take flight with X-Jet

Get ready to fly. This is something previously only imagined on a movie set. X-Jets are producing flying Jetblades and Jetpacks.

For about 8 months X-Jets Hydro Flight Systems has been shipping the Jetblade. The Jetblade attaches to a jet ski. The jet ski’s water thrust supplies the force to fly.

All development work has been done in Rhino. The renderings were done in Flamingo. And some of the shape work on the Jetblade was refined with scripted Grasshopper.

The earlier designed X-Jetpack was also designed in Rhino.
