From a distance, John Krietzer's radio-controlled Starship Enterprise looks fairly convincing. We'll forgive him for using Captain Picard's voiceover to go along with the NCC-1701-a in this video, because look at it! The thing flies!

I had a real nice and accurate Enterprise D foam glider that flew well and would have made an excellent RC conversion.

I saw this video - It's pretty cool.


William Shatner posted it up on his twitter, which is where I saw it, lol.

Looks like it has a serious trim problem. The forward CG, of course.
