Osgeld, I can't tell if you're being serious or sarcastic!

This thing is pretty damn big but I guess I could have made something bigger. Then again, I don't know how the storm troopers would roll it around then!

I decided to give the millenium falcon body a flight test today before I went further into painting and stuff. Unfortunately, as you can see in the video below, it just doesn't fly. I though I was OK up to about 200 grams, but at roughly 170 it still didn't lift. I suspect part of that might be the fact that it is very lop sided.
