An "Ex-" X-Wing

As expected, Star Wars tech != real world tech. For comparison, about ten years ago a different GWTMTOHH* built a 1/12th scale model of a Saturn V, complete with liquid fuel and gimbaled motors. Flew like a champ.

Of course, as has been pointed out elsewhere, the X-wing is supposedly a space craft, not an aircraft. Rules are different, that sort of thing.

All I can say is it was most likely much more fun for me to watch than it was for the guys who built it.

Guy With Too Much Time On His Hands. Call them Styx men.
