RC X-Wing takes flight, terrifies womp rats

The RCX4 Star Stryker is a Star Wars X-Wing Fighter-inspired radio-controlled helicopter found at CES 2010.


LAS VEGAS--DigitTronics demonstrated its RCX4 Star Stryker radio-controlled helicopter to the delight of "Star Wars" fans at CES 2010.

Priced at $399, with a $299 sale price for CES attendees, the Star Stryker includes a quad motor layout with control for lift, cycle, and yaw. The helicopter comes with a custom-fit case, a 2.4GHz spread spectrum radio controller, and is already assembled.

Of course, Lucasfilm's lawyer team is probably drafting their cease-and-desist letter as we speak, so grab one while you can. At least we'll always have the photo gallery , right?

No word on when we'll be able to pit this thing against the iPhone-controlled AR.Drone , but keep those fingers crossed.
