There's a gentleman in Mexico who just spent 20 or 30 years creating a jetpack so he could fly. Center of mass and location of thrust are important-tape some model rockets to the ankles of a 12 inch action figure/barbie doll and see if it flies strait, and why. Volume of fuel becomes an issue-as does control of thrust (you can't just go up, you need 1/2 or more of the fuel to come back down).

poor quality video but it shows what I think you're talking about quite well?

Well, I'd scrap the ion propulsion side of it. Ion propulsion is only useful in space and it takes a long time to get going at a decent rate of speed.

If anyone's tried strapping rocket thrusters to their feet and igniting them, you'll probably find a mention somewhere HERE.
