A Real Life STAR WARS X-Wing Tri-Copter

By Armi Dimaranan

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.
