No, it doesnt lift your body. But with an RC helicpter engine, and a larger than usual propellor, this hat will lift right off your head, with you at the controls.

The ultimate fun, trying to land it onto peoples heads.

       You ever stood close (ie "hat close") to an RC helicpter [sic] engine?
No, thought not.

       A little heat shielding, and it'll be okay.   

       And, yes, I have.
DesertFox, Jan 06 2006
  

       ...and some replacement for a tail-boom. Co-axial counter-rotating rotors? Tangential side-ducts on the hat?

       I can see a lot of horrible accidents happening

       You'd auto-gyro if you fell down. That'd be a safety feature.
Dub, Jan 07 2006
  

       Nice plan but I can't help feeling that safety might be an issue. [+]

       [DF] I suspect [AWOL] is more concerned by the noise than the heat? Maybe some authentic ear defenders might be in order.

       Ahhh, [d_s] true, they are noisy. I'd just shove some earplugs in my ear, if it were too loud. :)

       What about a simple electric engine rather than the petrol ones I presume you are talking about. They dont last long but all you are really after is effect.
miasere, Jan 09 2006
  

       Oh, I think [DF] is after more than "effect".

       See my link to the Vectron remote controlled flying saucer. I have one of these and it is entirely feasable to fly one off your head! The handset can only control altitude on this model. The disc is rechargable and flies for a few minutes. The motor is low powered and safe, you can stop the propellor with your hand or nose. It would be nice to see one of these actually sold as a hat.

       //The handset can only control altitude on this model// How exciting.

       Don't helicopters have an attitude control too? That's a handy thing to have on a hat.
Dub, Jan 09 2006
  

       //Don't helicopters have an attitude control too? That's a handy thing to have on a hat.// A hat with attitude?
AbsintheWithoutLeave, Jan 09 2006
  

       //A hat with attitude?// - Hattitide, in fact. ...and worn at a jaunty angle.
