I don't believe this has been brought up yet but the forces involved are just too great.

In order to avoid an incoming missile strike, a so called helicopter would have to apply a whole lot of negative pitch in a minute but finite length of time. I believe such forces will tear the helicopter apart. When size increases the forces do as well - only they increase exponentially.

Also consider the phalax. No moving object in existance can avoid that.

A horse is a sphere if it makes the numbers easier
