Yeah those jump pads are some of the most temperamental in Clone Drone. Erik has moved the initial pad away from the elevator from where it was previously, and the result is now you can't glitch the elevator but you can get plain stuck in the above jump pad array. Not ideal by any means, and I think Erik has seen it enough to be on the radar as well.
Hopefully we'll get to fixing that soon, but in the meantime I hope you are able to play around that issue and have some fun! Let me know if that is not the case and I would be happy to help you in any way that I can! :-)
