    "This thing is powered by four-rockets and actually flies. In fact, he's going to prove it out in California, next week."
    I'll look forward to hearing how his test goes, because it doesn't look particularly aerodynamic...

    Re: Man Creates 21-Foot Working X-Wing Replica

    why would you build it out of wood?

    Surely fibreglass would not be that much harder to work with? and when you consider the stresses involved with the total lack of aerodynamics it seems it would make sense...

    But other than that it seems like an awesome way to spend your weekends...
