I agree with Boltar. This "project" has all the engineering and scientific value of a sausage speed-eating competition except there isn't even a competition.

I mean, I don't mind a bunch of guys building a rocket on wheels for fun in their spare time but that in itself does not entitle them to sulk at the world for not showering them in cash and rose petals.

As one of my kids said when we visited their stand at RIAT'13 - "it already looks like an unfinished aeroplane, why don't they just add wings to their contraption and fly it?"
