These Star Wars Drones are Out of this World
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's an Imperial Star Destroyer... sort of. French drone enthusiast Olivier C has taken his love of all things Star Wars, and has given it flight. His creation takes the form of the Imperial Fleet's sinister battle cruiser, and utilizes lightweight foam body panels and stripped-down quadcopter running gear. Sure, up close the circular holes cut in the middle (to allot the drone's spinning blades) are a tell-tale sign that this is in fact not an incoming destroyer bent on obliterating your planet, but from afar the silhouette with its rear propulsion lights, pronounced command bridge and shield generator domes could have you fooled.

Before you rip apart your store-bought quadcopter to build a Star Destroyer... there are a few more options that abound. Olivier's build threads on RCGroups.com also reveal a stunning Millennium Falcon drone (with high-intensity LED lights) as well as an impressive TIE Interceptor. Each of which uses the same chassis design, which he has nicknamed 'PROPHECY 335' due to its 335mm length between rotors.

The Star Wars universe is full of interesting and unique space craft to turn into drones – a Death Star, Jango Fett's Slave I, the iconic X-Wing, Luke's Landspeeder. We doubt he'll be running out of ideas any time soon. What Star Wars craft would you build?
