Today is ForceFriday — the day that all the Star Wars toys hit the shelves. People are going absolutely insane over it! Makers can’t just go buy toys though, they have to make stuff! Here are 17 things you can make to celebrate the occasion.
Modify a drone into a speeder bike
Relive your favorite fast-paced speeder bike chase scene with these awesome FPV drone videos.
Now that you’ve modified your drone to be a speeder bike, make it an X-wing!
Rule the skies with your own X-wing Starfighter craft.
OK, you’ve done a speeder bike and X-wing, now turn your drone into the Millennium Falcon!
After you build this Millennium Falcon drone, your next challenge is to make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.
Speeder bike, X-wing, Millennium Falcon, what’s next? Drone Tie Interceptor obviously!
With all of these drones now under your belt, take a turn to the Dark Side with this Tie Interceptor.
Ok, this is the last drone: An Imperial Star Destroyer makes a big impact, and you can build one.
Now you can truly relive the iconic opening scene of A New Hope with this Imperial Star Destroyer.
