This Guy Turned His Drone Into A Star Wars TIE Fighter


Recommended Posts

Remember that custom Millennium Falcon quadcopter from a few weeks back? It better look out. The Rebel Alliance isn’t the only one with birds in the air anymore.

Modeled after the TIE Interceptor from Return Of The Jedi, Olivier says this guy took about 15 hours to design and “at least as many” to get it flying right. In the end, at least 14 propellers were sacrificed for the cause — including a few that sent carbon shrapnel shooting into the walls of his garage.

Can it make the Kessel Run in fewer than 12 parsecs? Nah. But it probably can blow some minds at the local park.
