Propel’s incredible (and collectible!) Star Wars themed drones are back, and they’re better than ever.
To ring in Force Friday, the drone maker has launched a limited edition range of hand-finished, individually numbered battle drones for collectors based on actual aerial vehicles from the Star Wars movies.
The drones are battle drones, meaning not only do they simply fly, but they also are intended for battle combat. They have eye-safe lasers that can be fired at other Star Wars drones. If a drone is hit, it will wobble. If it takes three hits, it will crash land.
Propel has already created a series of Star Wars drones. (Check out my review of Propel’s first version of Star Wars drones in the video below):
But this version is new and improved.
For the first time ever you can battle against others with a system that records, combines and compares your performance against everyone in the world. So if you don’t have a friend with a drone to battle in person, you can still battle with virtual players all around the world. Also new to these drones is a T Mode (aka training mode).
Just like the first iteration of Star Wars drones, these come in that fantastic presentation box with a wax seal and a three-dimensional scale model of the craft on the front. When the top of the box is opened, the box lights up and various soundbites and the Star Wars theme tune is played through loudspeakers which are integrated in the box. Each box and drone has a unique serial number.
What better way to celebrate the upcoming “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” film than with a new Star Wars drone? Let me know your thoughts on the drone in the comments below.
