If you don't have a girlfriend, you know it as the Incom T-65. Else, it's the X-Wing Starfighter, pride of the Rebel Alliance's strike fleet. Here's the backstory. A gang of aerospace hobbyists created a workable model of the X-Wing out of plywood, fiberglassed foam and whatnot. Then they hooked it up with booster rockets and RC gear, and hauled it out the desert, where they proceeded to send it on its maiden voyage. You have no idea how hard it is not to give away the ending. [Gizmodo]
