Storyline

This is the story of a tenacious Australian Jet Pilot, David Mayman, as he strives to achieve his childhood dream of building and free-flying his very own Rocket Belt, only to discover he faces a nearly impossible task. Collaborating with the world's leading Rocket Belt engineers David risks life and limb to become the world's next Rocketman. ROCKET COMPULSION will take the audience on a ride that shows point blank why less people have flown Rocket Belts than have walked on the Moon. Written by Anonymous

The great Ozzie adventure
23 January 2012 | by pharvellSee all my reviews

David Mayman is an inspiration to young boys of my years that have Dreamt of rocket belts and the famous James bond movie, today the kids have dreams that go way beyond, but in the 70's we all dreamed like David, about flying a rocket belt. I found the history about rocket belt fascinating and would have like to see more, more footage of the old school rocket men, I know it must be hard to find but it look like you had the original guys on the doc so they must have access to some of the old stuff. I also what to know more about the man and what make him tick not enough human stuff, also how does the story end what is he doing now? and what about other rocket men. A good Australian story need more like this that shows the true adventure spirit of Australians.
