Default Electric jumper

Got a friend here in Turkey who wants to put an electric motor inside a man to make him fly with a parachute. Anyone done this? What do you think will it work? If you have any suggestions let us know. We are thinking it would be best to drop him from a plane and then fly him around.

BTW what a great forum...

We found out that a skydiver that weighs the right amount to skydive good is to heavy to fly with a motor. I beleave it can be done with not to much effort but he will have to be built from new, not just adding a motor to a good working skydiver. We also found the angle of the chute had to change slightly. Just some input from what I have learned myself.
