No reason it shouldn't have worked, it seems to be well thought out, functionally. Has the advantage of being able to land on any flat surface, not needing long runways or tethering masts. Still seems a bit of a solution in search of a problem, though. Waiting to see the commercial viability. And not completely convinced it isn't just a giant prank by 4chan.
