Harry Potter Flying Broom Idea? Answered

My idea is having fireproof fake or even real straw, a tube for rockets and rockets on the foot rests to turn and balance out. Speed is increase the power of the rockets or add more rockets. Only problem I've thought of is size. Will it work please help me.

Don't listen to everyone else and their "science" or "logic". I fully condone this design and see no issues with it other than, make sure you have a friend recording a video and make them promise to post it here afterwards since you won't be able to. Because you'll be rich and famous of course and probably not because you'll be completely dead.

Not going to work in the way I think you want. Jets, rockets, propellers have to travel very fast to support a person.

IF you talking model then a broom shaped drone might be possible.

Ah, define your idea of a broom.

For example - I have here on my desk a small item that is used as a mechanical random number generator. It selects between the numbers 1 and 6 totally at random and is often found in board games.

Tell me what you think it looks like and how it works I will post a picture.

That all depends on how your imagination works.

If you want to be a purist then i am sorry to disappoint you but magic doesn't work.

Although Robert Heinline did once say that any sufficiently advanced technology would seem like magic to lower levels of advancement.

Back to what I said originally - Rockets, jets and none winged transport in general has to travel VERY fast to work. Antigravity is beyond us at the macro scale. Hovering flight is the closest your going to get.

No it wont.

Seems like there's lots you havent thought about...

What happens when the rockets run out of propellant at 200ft?

How are you going to slow down to land safely instead of lawn darting?

that's why I thought I would stay low and slow just to test it.

To lift and fly a human being, you're going to need a good-sized rocket, say 10-15 feet tall and 6 inches across.

If you're going to ride it like a broomstick, the acceleration will break your bones and dislocate joints, and then, if you're lucky, you'll fall off.

If you want the broomstick experience, may I suggest instead...

Um... I think I'll go with BWRussel's answer - your plan has Darwin Award written all over it.
