I was thinking this approach as well..... have a 2 stage launch process, where the bursting of the balloon (or the altitude release mechanism) allows stage 1 to freefall.
Stage 1 has a simple parachute or wing to make it fall vertically.
A few seconds later, stage 2 (the LOHAN rocket) fires.
By this time, it is well clear of the balloon, and the launch platform is vertical.
