I'll point this out just for the sake of argument, a bolt didn't let the shuttle separate. Although if the RC model they used to simulate what the shuttle would glide like is any indication, it wouldn't have made a difference because it'd track level to the ground...as it dropped straight down.

The Reliant shuttle was hilarious and amazing that it even got off the ground. I was quite impressed at how well it performed. Almost looked like the real deal. If the controls had worked better they may have pulled it off.
