Vespa
A racing fan-speeder known for setting many records for speed, as well as the longevity of it's pilots– or rather lack thereof due to the fact that safety equipment and a normal steering system were both considered too heavy, and were left out of the craft so that it could go faster. The controls are very simple so that the pilot can pay attention to where he's going. There is an accelerator and a break pedal, and the pilot leans to one side or the other in order to steer the craft.
About this creation






Fan-speeders are named for their method of propulsion, immensely powerful propellers that can cause them to accelerate to around Mach 5. Components within Vespa's hollow carbon-fiber frame are magnetically linked as well as being physically linked to prevent the fan-speeder from being torn apart by it's own speed.






An ion drive is used to maneuver the craft outside of races, or in order to reach even greater speeds than usual when used in conjunction with the fans. The use of ion engines during races is prohibited.








The cockpit flips up to let out the pilot, here shown in racing uniform.



Notes: Probably my second to last build before the MOColympics begin, and I rather like how it came out, particularly the front. The thing was ridiculously fragile until the ion engine was added, so that is more or less holding the ship together.

As a last note, here's my pitch for the MOColympics:
If you haven't joined or heard about the aforementioned MOColympics then you should head over, look around, and sign up to have some fun. For those reluctant to do so, I can tell you that Chris Phipson and Dave Kaleta (a.k.a Batman) have been really awesomely kind, and donated real, physical prizes, with first prize being the Tower Bridge. Thank you to both of them!
