    Oh, well.....a conservatively-run simulation using a legitimate aircraft program has proven that the X-Wing is far too unstable to fly with a human onboard unless it is computer-controlled, much like a Harrier. Inputs to the system would need to be on the order of 125 corrections a second to the electromechanical actuators. Actuators that can deliver that kind of performance cost about $1,000 per piece, and that's a little out of most individual's price-range. Sorry kids.....a builder, I am, but I ain't got Northrop's facilities or money.....FLOL!!!!

    Shouldnt this be in the "The Force is at Work" thread? :p :p

    In all seriousness, im sorry to see that happen Kit. Maybe you could write a very convincing letter to the government to let you build this craft for the Defense of the Planet vs. The asteroid, and have them foot the bill...

    Sorry to here about that Kit. :(
