    Looks like America has taken a back seat in space flight technology.

    I know of no reason why the center section could not be a fan blade and add lift to the rocket motors, as well as stabity.

    Agree, tho' it would add drag after the spinner motors burned out. Could possibly compensate for that with a bit more tilt to the lift motors.

    Without a parachute, it will not survive the fall. Same system used for model rocketry.:)
