Looks like America has taken a back seat in space flight technology.
Geek rednecks at play?
Thought it was pretty cool, not what I was expecting.
Very nice vid..... the new Space Elevator
Anybody got a link how to build this?
The spinning is just for stabilization it doesn't provide lift, which is what I thought when I first saw this.
Uh-oh!! The mad canuck is going into the pyro experiment business. All you northwesterners, take cover!!
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.
Turning Monkeys loose with pyro and altitude...............yeah what could go wrong with that?
Add a camera?
Hold my beer old fella' and watch this.....
<video maybe someday>
I loved the parachute deployment at the end.
Without a parachute, it will not survive the fall. Same system used for model rocketry.
