‘Star Wars’ Fan Creates A Super Elaborate R2-D2 Drone [Video]


Aerial cinematographer Don Melara and the aerial photography company Air Cam Shots decided that they wanted R2-D2 to be a flying droid, and made it happen by transforming a DJI drone into “Arturo”.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a flying R2-D2, but this version definitely kicks it up a notch.

Although the addition of four propellers is unusual, the remainder of the character’s features were recreated with painstaking detail, including a moving head, LED jetpack lights and a speaker that can emit whistles and beeps. The device also features a DJI GPS autopilot navigation system and a ccd camera built into his eye.
