In this major advanced era of technology you couldn’t get just under a ton of steel to fly using an under-powered engine and wheels that are sideways down a dirt/mud or runway. We have brought you one video in which F9R (Falcon 9 Reusable) conducted its first flight test at rocket development facility. According to SpaceX channel, F9R test flights in New Mexico will allow us to test at higher altitudes than we are permitted for at their test site in Texas, to do more with unpowered guidance and to prove out landing cases that are more-flight like. That is pretty much all we can see.
