Agreed. Anybody in one of those is just skeet.

I watched an episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls (his guest was Keegan-Michael Key) in which he piloted one of these jet packs.
He seemed very good at it, so he must have had a lot of practice.

The Gravity Industries' Jet Suit is a 1,050 horsepower system which relies on five jet engines, and costs about $440,000.

This kind of tech evolves right so I am very sure someone is watching these results and saying okay cool, now how do we make it more fit for the kinds of things we might want it to do and a newer more functional version will be out before you know it. If you think about if the very first versions of most of the military tech we use were pretty useless but they nonetheless opened whole new fields of r and d.
