French maker Olivier C builds custom housing for quadcopters that turn them into the crazy “Star Wars” drones you’re looking for. We’ve already seen him build Millennium Falcon and TIE Interceptor drones, and he’s showing no signs of slowing down, with a few new videos displaying his latest creation, an Imperial Star Destroyer drone.
The videos show test flights for the custom build, touting how well the Imperial Star Destroyer looks and flies above the skies of Southern France. The build looks just as impressive as his previous two, with custom LED lights that make the drone look both amazing and imposing. If this thing is coming your way, you’d best turn around and run for your life.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
