After assembling the smaller model, in true Flite Test spirit we built a HUGE version of the small one!

Launched from a truck to get it up to speed, the Star Destroyer flies pretty well despite its enormous size. Until it gets caught in a backyard space battle with an RC Millennium Falcon mounted on a Lumenier quadcopter drone.

Fresh on the heels of The Force Awakens release, Flite Test – a group of R/C aficionados – has created a fully functioning Star Destroyer drone. Built out of foam and other everyday materials, the Star Destroyer is a whopping 15 feet long and powered by two huge electric motors and a large lithium polymer battery.

Launched from a truck to get it up to speed, the Star Destroyer flies pretty well despite its enormous size. Until it gets caught in a backyard space battle with an RC Millennium Falcon mounted on a Lumenier quadcopter drone. The footage of the flight is impressive, captured by two small first person view (FPV) drones.
