Submission + - Rocket-Powered 21-Foot Long X-Wing Actually Flies (gizmodo.com) 2

An anonymous reader writes: Andy Woerner and his crazy rocketeer friends have built a 21-foot long X-Wing model that can actually fly. Yes, this is a real X-Wing powered by four solid-fuel rocket engines complete with radio-controlled moving wings. It blasts off in California next week, and we talked with Andy about the project, and how they expect it will do. Look at the pictures of the construction. It even has an R2-D2. I can't wait for this fly and/or blown-up.
