Built on top of iCub v2.5, it is endowed with 4 jet engines, two of them mounted on the arms and the other two on a jetpack attached to the robot’s back. A few modifications of the hardware design were required to support the external engines, such as the development of a new spine in titanium and the addition of heat-resistant covers for heat protection. The robot with jet engines weights about 45 kg. The turbines can provide a maximum thrust force of more than 750N, and the exhaust temperature reaches over 600 degrees.
