Status: Study 2004.

Crusader X was proposed by a team led by Richard Speck of Micro-Space, Inc of Denver, Colorado. The concept used rocket powered vertical takeoff followed by a parachute descent. The Crusader X used a lightweight core frame with seats and windshield resembling a bobsled. This was strapped to the flank of a cluster of rocket motors. The sealed Personal Life Support unit included a backup parachute, communications, and GPS gear. The core frame held the attitude control jets, tiny flight controller, and parachute packages.
