This article is about the IC2 jetpack. For the Modular Powersuits module, see Jetpack (Modular Powersuits)
The Jetpack is an equippable tool that allows the player to fly for as long as the fuel in the Jetpack lasts (around 55-65 secs). Flying is performed by holding down the jump key. It also has a Hover Mode, which can be toggled by holding the M key while pressing the jump key (hold one and press the other. It is advisable to hold M and press jump unless you want to change modes midflight). In Hover Mode, holding the jump key will make the player ascend at about one quarter speed, while releasing it will make the player fall at about half speed.
There is an electric version of this tool, superior in every way but flying height, the Electric Jetpack.
The Jetpack is limited to a maximum flying height of ~245 meters (blocks) above the bedrock layer. For comparison, the Electric Jetpack is limited to ~185 meters above bedrock.
A fully fueled Jetpack can properly fly for about 60 seconds, followed by about 8 seconds of low power mode (which can only slow the player's descent, instead of fly).
The Jetpack can be refueled by placing it in the bottom of a Canning Machine, and placing 6 fuel cells (i.e. Coalfuel Cells or Biofuel Cells) in the top of the Canning Machine. 6 Coal-Fuel Cells will give about 95% fuel, and 6 Biofuel Cells will give about 30% fuel. As such, there is no way fully fuel an empty Jetpack without wasting some fuel.
