Cool flying suit though - I want one!

One of the most amazing videos I have seen is the one from about 3 years ago, highlighting these flying suits. Now we see what could happen if things don't quite go right !

If you walk over a highway blindfolded your could get hit by a car. It's exactly with these guys do, taking stupendous risks and relying on their equipment for their lives. It's that kick that might drive them into doing this but they know the risks for sure so no need to complain over it when stuff happens.
If god had intended for men to fly he would have given (real) wings... : D

How would you rather go? Would you do it getting some of the most fantastic video in the world while flying through the mountains or do you prefer in your car because some woman is too busy adjusting her makeup or some drunk couldn't be bothered to ask for a ride? Creating great video sometimes requires a different emotional perspective as well as an unusual physical perspective.
