Ready, Red Leader? 'Star Wars' X-wing quadcopter takes flight

The Galactic Empire better watch out. French creator Olivier C has put the finishing touches on his RC X-wing quadcopter, and it looks like the "Star Wars" drone is ready to take on the Death Star.

We saw the prototype in action a few weeks ago, and now French creator Olivier C has put the finishing touches on his "Star Wars" X-wing RC quadcopter.

Olivier released a video to his YouTube channel on Monday showing the Rebel starfighter in action as it flies through the skies of southern France. Like his snowspeeder, Star Destroyer, TIE Interceptor and Millennium Falcon builds, the X-wing build is intricately detailed and looks like it would fit right in with the rest of the starships in the "Star Wars" universe.

The X-wing comes complete with four laser cannons -- one mounted on each of the ship's four wings -- and is finished with blue stripes along the side just like the X-wing we saw in J.J. Abrams' .

Watch the X-wing in action in the video above, and rest assured that should the Galactic Empire come for Earth, this planet is now better protected.
