I am currently working with 4 other friends my age (Alex, John, Joe, and the other Sam) every Saturday. We also have a few great mentors who provide guidance and general support, and the project wouldn't be at all possible without them!
We've been working for about 13 weeks, and we're getting there. We've still got a bit of time before Maker Faire but every work period is a rush to get stuff done.
Personally, my job is inner electrical work (designing the dashboard, displays, controls, etc) and all of the physics computation on the software side (we're modifying an open source flight simulator game). I've also been doing some Arduino programming alongside Alex, but I'd personally like to do more of the physical building.
If you're around for the Bay Area Maker Faire this year, come check us out! Also, you can read more about the project and keep up-to-date on our project blog, located at http://the-viper.org.
We've come out with a legitimate introduction video! Go ahead and give it a peek.
