It sound like a very appealing aircraft. Do you have any idea on the cost or matinence required to buy them and keep them flying?

If your back yard is 40 ft by 50 ft then yes, it would hold the X-45C along with just a little wiggle room.

On friday, Dec. 10th 2 Bloc 3, Boeing X-45A's flew together in coordinated flight piloted by one operater.
Operating under the call signs Stingray 01 and Stingray 02, the aircraft flew together for over an hour. During a previous mission this month, the same X-45A's flew successfully in different formations, demonstrating the ability to autonomously enter and exit coordinated flight based on pre-identified points and showing the ability to dynamically alter the formation in all three axes simultaneously.

Now if they can just put a rat brain in it for a bio-controller we'll be well on our way to a sci-fi future...

Yup, they're working hard on these beautiful aircraft.

The X-45C is expected to hit the sky early 2006. www.air-attack.com...

In the meantime the A version will be updated and tested with newer hard- and software. For the same DAPRA/USAF/USNAVY J-UCAS program, the X-47 also gets improvements, and also a second, larger version, the X-47B.


btw, Im still looking for some data I couldn't find several weeks ago, the X-45Cs height and mission take-off weight. If anyone has that info, please email/u2u me, thanks.
