At this point, if you don’t know who Oliver C is, chances are pretty good that you’ve been living under a rock. Over the past few months, this guy has won the heart of the Internet with his awe-inspiring, fully functional, and totally badass replicas of popular Star Wars ships — and he’s showing no signs of stopping.

Yeah I think you just set me back $500. I'll make sure to mention that I got the idea from Twitter, because that's what she calls this place
Thanks from coke

They said the plans are available on line. I have been looking for an excuse to buy a drone anyways.

I neither do I but it gets fuck all cold and boring here in a month or two. Not to mention having a Star Wars drone to spy w/ would be wicked cool.

I think I would just buy a parrot drone or blade if i just wanted one to fuck around with. Push a button it comes back and lands its self. Couple of guys out at the club fly them. I see no challenge in it myself. But, if I wanted to get into cheap aerial photography or, as you say, spy lol I guess that would be alot easier than a go pro slung off the bottom of my P-47 or something haha
