Wookiee ornithopter? By any chance, are you using the guts from a Dragonfly?

Wookiee ornithopter or Wookie Fluttercraft, you got it Darth.
Once again looking for something different I came up with this idea after seeing a DragonFly ornithopter in action.
"The Wookiee ornithopter is a lightweight twin-seated scout craft armed with a tail-gunner used to defend the tree-cities of Kashyyyk against attack. The nimble aircraft were used during the Clone Wars." From the Star Wars Data bank
It appears in Revenge of the Sith. Throw the movie in, click on chapter 17 or 30 and check it out. It pops up a few other places too. Anyway below are a few shots from the movie and a couple of the model so far. I'm tring to keep it light and simple.

If you’re not familiar with the Dragonfly it's a new "toy" from WooWee Flytech. It’s a 4 winged RC ornithopter (see pic & video below). You can find them all over for anywhere between $45 and $50 dollars. I cut off the outer foam casing and removed all unnecessary weight from the motor assembly. All the pieces I removed weighed total about 5 grams.While trying for a balance of scale appearance and keeping the weight down on the craft surprisingly it also weighed in about 5 grams. The upper hood portion will be supported by the engine assembly for strength. I plan to replace the wings with some clear Mylar or similar lightweight material. On the leading edge of the wings I'll cut some scale looking rotor blades made out of silver tape or other light material to add detail. If all fly’s well, I'll give it a light paint job and add a wookiee pilot with tail-gunner photo.
