The real x-wing capable of actually flying!

Star Wars fanatic Andy Woerner has built a real near-life size radio controlled model of the X-Wing that is capable of flight thanks to 4 solid-fuel rockets and an electric motor from an RC Helicopter. The Class M rockets are held in the wing and produce a bright red flame similar to the effect in the film.

The X-Wing will launch on October 10th. Fingers crossed! Im sure a video will appear very soon of the successful flight and/or spectacular crash.
