Star Wars Drones

It was just a matter of time, really. With drones invading the skies all around us, it was inevitable that we would eventually be seeing some Star Wars Drones, RC toy maker Propel is launching a quartet of official drones modeled on some familiar modes of transportation from a galaxy far, far away. A speeder bike, and an X-Wing, and the Millennium Falcon, and a Tie fighter. And yes, they really do fly. The drones can reach speeds up to 40mph and can do 360-degree aerial stunts at the push of a button, they also have a battle feature, which you can use to play a game of mid-air laser tag with up to 24 friends. watch the video below

Launching this Fall, with reservations now open.
