TIE Interceptor drone is the meanest starfighter in the galaxy
The guy who built the Millennium Falcon drone is back with another "Star Wars"-themed drone creation. If you see this TIE Interceptor drone coming your way, you'd better hope your hyperdrive is operational.
CNET freelancer Anthony Domanico is passionate about all kinds of gadgets and apps. When not making words for the Internet, he can be found watching Star Wars or "Doctor Who" for like the zillionth time. His other car is a Tardis.
If you build custom chassis to make drones look like "Star Wars" starships, it's going to be hard to top the Millennium Falcon drone. A crafty guy who goes by the social-media moniker Olivier C is out with his latest "Star Wars" drone, and it's based on the TIE/IN Interceptor. It's arguably not as cool as his Falcon build, but it could still strike fear into the hearts of the Rebel Alliance.
Olivier C released two videos to his YouTube channel showing the TIE Interceptor drone in flight. The drone is a near-perfect replica of the Interceptor, with the same dagger-like look of the solar array panels from the ship. Fortunately for those around him, Olivier C didn't equip the Interceptor with the four laser cannons found on the actual starfighter.
Now, here's hoping he realizes full drone potential and puts together a battle scene showing the Millennium Falcon and the TIE Interceptor engaged in an epic space battle over the skies of Planet Earth.
