The evolution of the saucer - the Turbine Rocket Saucer

This is the latest creation from Boris Katan, who is known for some of the coolest clusters around. It uses turbine blades and an angled cluster of motors.  The motors spin it up, it hovers for a bit and then rotates softly back down.   His TRF thread describes the rocket's evolution, including more photos and link to this cool video.
