With the ever-rising popularity in drones, and more specifically the four-propeller quadricopter style, geeks are making sure to take advantage by building working versions of their favorite fictional aircraft.
Recently, we saw an impressive functional remote control version of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Helicarrier, and now comes a working fan-made version of the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars, the famous ship owned by Han Solo that can make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.
Click on over to the other side now to see a few videos of the fan-made Falcon in action, including a visit to Hoth (sorta).
The Millennium Falcon is also in the much-anticipated upcoming sequel from director J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and makes an appearance in movie’s highly watched (and then watched again…and again, and again) first trailer.
