DIY drones are the future

Star Wars Speeder bike drone

Adam Woodworth is the creator of this sweet Star Wars imperial speeder bike complete with a scout trooper, camera, on a DIY quadcopter.

I got into FPV (First Person Video) multi-rotor racing a few months ago. The fast, low level flying instantly reminded me of the Endor chase scene from Return of the Jedi. This project was an obvious choice to combine my interest and experience in RC (remote control) flight with my love of Star Wars stuff. I like always having some strange project on the work bench and this one was next in line, an attempt to build a version of the Imperial Speeder Bikes from the movie that I could “get into” and fly around myself.
