A Real Life STAR WARS X-Wing Tri-Copter

Artist Rodger Cleye loves recreating flying movie props, and, this time around, he’s crafted possibly the largest Star Wars X-Wing model around.

The flying machine is 5 feet long, built using PVC piping, and uses three twelve-inch rotor blades powered by 1200W electric motors. Though it weighs 19 pounds, it’s not very fast or maneuverable. It also most likely won’t hold up against a plastic lightsaber, but it’s still pretty badass.

Watch it in action below:

If you dig his X-Wing model, you should take a look at his Project Thunderball, a flying James Bond mannequin with a jetpack, and his Marty McFly hover-board recreation.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    I do believe all the ideas you have offered to your post. They are really convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are too quick for beginners. Could you please lengthen them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

    Thanks for giving your ideas listed here. The other factor is that any time a problem comes up with a laptop motherboard, individuals should not consider the risk connected with repairing the item themselves for if it is not done right it can lead to irreparable damage to an entire laptop. It is almost always safe to approach the dealer of any laptop for the repair of that motherboard. They have technicians with an skills in dealing with notebook computer motherboard complications and can get the right analysis and conduct repairs.

  9. O yee .. this is very cool indeed. Please make the real lightsaber come true!

    I only have the model for empire interceptor .. that copter will soon become a nice toy model for starwars!
