Maker builds cool DIY drones inspired by 'Star Wars'2015 might be the year of the drone, and to back up that claim here's a look at two "Star Wars"-themed drones created this year by a man known only as Olivier C on the interwebs.
[MUSIC] Starwars super fan and quad copter enthusiast, only known by his You Tube username, Olivier C, has been hard at work building quad copter replicas of famous starwars spacecraft. His most recent work is the TIE/IN Interceptor which he published You Tube this week making its main flight. Lucky for us Olivier C has been posting a detailed step by step building process on his blog at rcgroups.com, so makers can follow along and build their very own Star Wars inspired quadcopters. [MUSIC] Olivier C's first creation was a Millenium Falcon quadcopter equipped with awesome looking embedded LEDs. The Millenium Falcon's body was built on. Hop of a Prophecy 335 Quadcopter. Included are all of the specs of the quadcopter in the description of the video. The Millennium Falcon was cut out of a thin but insulate material that was carefully shaped and crafted to fit over the quadcopter and still be light enough to maneuver and remain balanced. [MUSIC] The end result is an awe-inspiring flying machine that brings Star Wars to life right before your eyes. If you want to learn how to build your own Star Wars quadcopter, check out Olivier C's blog at rcgroups.com and search Olivier, underscore, C, or find the link in the Crave blog post. [MUSIC]
