Reed Timmer is doing something similar isn’t he?
yes, with rockets.
He was shooting up in the inflow and then the payload was sucked into the vortex.

I think the payload is lifted up in the updraft by parachute after it is deployed.
Like Estes rockets do, the engines do a back burn to blow the top payload out.

I though about doing it, but with no letter suffixes after my name, nobody would pay any attention.
From what pricing i can find, the payload package that Reed uses come to something like 5k. ( I think ).
