Looks way more professionally-built than others I could mention...

EXOS posted a video to Youtube yesterday of a hold-down firing, using what looks to be a full-size SARGE engine and body.  It's characterized as a "low-pressure test", with a full-power one soon to come, but even at this stage it looks bloody impressive.  As some on this forum have said, others have made much more hype over much less achievement...  https://youtube.com/watch?v=SrkCULVaxGo

They also made a blog post to accompany it, with a lot of great pictures before and after the test (if anyone else wants to attach them over here feel free, I'm on mobile and can't really do so): http://exosaero.com/2017/08/20/tie-test-1/

Gotta love how the test lasted ~30secs.. and then the minions spend the next minute-and-a-half putting out spot fires!!   :) ;D
With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine - however, this is not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are
going to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead.
