Star Wars Storm Trooper Rides Again!

Star Wars Storm Trooper Rides Again!

When can we get one?? We love this “Speeder Bike” created by Adam Woodworth and will be waiting with bated breath for someone to make this available to us mere mortals. Adam notes, “I got into First Person Video multirotor 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 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.” The Storm Trooper’s head can be swapped out for a mini camera for true First-Person View!

  2. just plain awesome I love it

  4. Absolutely amazing. Would love to have one.

  5. I would buy one of those for my son…. a Star Wars fanatic!

  6. how do i get in contact with Adam?

  7. wow this is awesome

  8. Totaly Awesome, Excelant work and dedication! 🙂

  9. Interesting that YouTobe hasn’t given him a hard time for using that music. I actually had YouTube take down one of my RC flight videos because a radio can be heard in the background playing part of a jazz tune that YouTube identified and issued a “take down notice”. I objected that it was fair use and part of a documentary film of an actual event, but YouTube wouldn’t budge and the video was taken down and they put a “strike” against my account. Total b.s.

  10. What a way to get the kids to clean the leaves in the yard

  11. OUTSTANDING, wish I would have thought of it!

  12. I love it and would love to know how it was maid.

  13. well done and inspires me to build one myself!

  14. I want one. Wish I had the talent to convert a quad-copter. Really nice!

  15. Please tell which quad did you use?

  16. When are the scale R/C Walkers coming ? This is just too neat …

  17. I thought this was “Model AIRPLANE News”??? That is not an Airplane! This is why I am not renewing my subscription after 5 years to MAN, these stupid “quadcopters” are toys and meant for people who don’t have the talent or persistence to fly a REAL model Plane or Helicopter and they are taking too damn much space up in MAN. Get back to PLANES or lose your Model AIRPLANE base.

  18. But I want an Ewok!!!!!
