    Read about this in the Metro on the way to work today.. My first thought was "Shut up and take my money!"

    Looks very remarkable.. A real experience. I wonder what the production cost was and if a similar concept will ever be inplimented for military/law enforcement etc reasons. I expect this to impact the thrillseeking market quite a deal.

    as much as i want to believe this is real i have to say FAKE!

    The side shot when he is taking off makes me think it is fake as it just doesn't look real enough.

    Excuse me while I turn off the alarm on my bull excrement radar...

    Like LeightonJames said, the side shot at takeoff is extremely dodgy. The way his legs go back... he's only going a few knots, so he's spending a huge amount of effort to keep a straight posture!

    Hmm.. After looking beyond my original excitement I'm more inclined to believe this is a fake. Firstly, 14/14. How'd he know he'd achieve flight in exactly 14 videos? Secondly, the takeoff and landing aren't amazingly visible.

    Plus, This...

    Total fake as proven by the guy admitting to it but you could have picked it way earlier with some basic math/science. The wingspan was too small for the weight, arms alone can't provide that kind of power, flap rate too slow, flap motion was just up and down etc. etc.
