Star Wars Fan Makes Impressive Flying Viper Imperial Probe Droid Drone

We knew that the drone world would be coming up with some amazing ideas ever since home built droids started picking up steam.  However, I think that all of us can agree that despite the rise in these things, each one is becoming more impressive than the next.  Maybe it’s Halloween?  Or maybe it’s just people are smarter?  Or maybe it’s just that people have more time on their hands than ever before?

Whatever the reason, it’s just a real pleasure to find all of these incredibly creative people out there.  The latest is a Stars Wars lover and they’ve decided to combine their love of Star Wars and drones into something completely awesome.

According to Inverse:

Arguably, the flying Viper Imperial probe droid, made famous for scouting out the secret Rebel base on Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back, has long been the most forgotten of Star Wars droids. That hasn’t stopped one fan from modifying a replica of the droid with drone. The results of having a flying machine floating around the house definitely feel like something out of a space opera.

The drone is the work of YouTube user ajw61185, and it’s an impressive re-creation. The lights are a nice touch, and honestly even just seeing its shadow cast on the wall is enough to fool your brain for a second. The actual size of a probe droid in the movies is around five feet, so the scale is a little off, but there’s only so much a drone can take.
