Great achievment. I never thought it would be possible to make an X-Wing fly in an atmosphere. Could you post some pics?

Regards

The c/g is 1 inc infront of the leading edge. I was playing with the c/g, today,
but this position is the best for me.

FANTASTIC work, partner H-J. Congratulations on a beautiful looking plane (it's not one of my favorites, it IS my favorite sci-fi plane).

Hoping you post plans and a build thread soon.
