That would certainly be something. I can't with high reliability get things to return via parachute to where I launched them into the air. But then I am using thin plastic parachutes deployed by, you know, fire.

Sky crane would be way cooler.

Question is what happens to the chute and control equipment, if it needs to be returned then shortly that means some has to collect it. Perhaps we will end up with lots of free chutes?
