The man who created a working Millennium Falcon out of a drone has crossed to the dark side. Techcrunch spotted the sleek but sinister Star Wars TIE fighter drone that builder Philip_C based on a Return of the Jedi model. After designing it in AutoCAD and painstakingly building it over several days (the motors are cached within the TIE panels) he tested it, calling the early results "not awesome." Many shattered props later, he finally had a stable craft-- complete with majestic LED lights -- that looks ready to be cannon fodder for the Falcon drone. He included a detailed, step-by-step log of his work, and you can watch it soar in the video below.
