Up, up and away: The X-Wing rocket

Andy Woerner and friends have a built a 21-foot by 19 foot X-Wing out of plywood and aluminum, powered by four solid-fuel rocket engines. The wings are radio-controlled and actually move. All the way. Into attack position. How crazy are these folks?

The X-Wing will launch next week (unmanned!) Gizmodo has the full story and all the rocket-geek details.
