I think Alpha may have worded it wrong, Direct site to site teleportation is programed in, thus can not be changed during mid sequence. as with Jetting the rangers were not on a static path and could move freely in 3 dimensional space. At least that's the way I view it

Eh I wouldn't have thought it was so dumb if they didn't already have teleportation or the Radbug.

I've always wondered what happened to the Radbug

On the topic, I don't know why they bothered to use Jetting given that IIRC they only used it twice

It worked for the reason it was introduced, fill time and have the three suits for the actors they were missing do it helped well. In the long run yes it is pointless but it fixed a production problem at the time, of missing half the cast.

I remember a jetting scene where you could see the Rangers top halfs (in above superman pose) but the bottom half was in energy form (like teleporting)

I can't remember the episode though.

That was in part one of "The Power Transfer" when the rangers teleport to the deserted planet. They didn't say they were jetting, so I always just took it as a weird teleportation effect they were trying out. In fact, right before that scene, Zordon tells them that Alpha will teleport them there.

The most you could do with it would be a Happy-Meal-style toy with a stand for the inarticulate Ranger figures in a "jetting" pose.

That's what makes it so bizarre: You can't use the "to sell toys" excuse because there was no toy to be sold.
I think that is exactly Titanium's point. Figures that were already in production could be used to recreate the "jetting." It gives kids one more type of make believe for playing with their toys.

Jetting is one of those stupid ideas, that a reversioning of MMPRS2 should have just erased & just re-edited into normal teleportation.

I assume the reason is similar to how vehicles like Shark cycles, Galaxy Gliders etc would seem like a good idea. On paper it might seem good, but in actual use doesnt quite work.

Forget the Shark Cycles and Galaxy Gliders, I wanted more kart driving for the Rangers.

Such an under appreciated mode of transportation.

I usually enjoy all the Power Ranger vehicles, but Galaxy Gliders, and Jet Jammers will always be my favorite
