Woah, this is my first RPF post and I hope I don't dissapoint.

I built Frank Walker's Jetpack from the 2015 Disney film Tomorrowland. I have a full 25 minute build video on my YouTube Channel. I spent about a month researching the prop, a month tracking down parts, and about two weeks building it. Filming takes time so the actual build time was more like one week.

I decided during the planning stages to put my own spin on the jetpack. So it's not a perfect replica, more 95% replica and then I added a few extra touches. The video explains most of the build. I shot 7hrs of footage and first cut was 2.5hrs, yikes. I edited it down to 25 minutes to make it more entertaining.

QUESTIONS? I'll do my best to answer them all.

I'd love to get some feedback from all of you. - Zach Settewongse

If I’m not mistaken the same model Electrolux vacuum was also used for the 1966 Batman movie “total dehydrator”.
Wow I thought you were making a joke but then I Googled "Total Dehydrator". Yes it totally is the same electrolux vacuum. Good eye! The Total Dehydrator looks really easy to build. Hmm might have to add it to the list.
