Amazing Star Wars Scout Trooper On Speeder Bike Quadrocopter

March 16, 2015

This is a video of the scout trooper on speeder bike quadrocopter made and flown by copter hobbyist and Star Wars fan Adam Woodworth. It is one of the most impressive quadrocopter mods I've seen, which is saying a lot because I've seen them all, including a full scale naked lady. I built that one myself. "You hung a mannequin from your ceiling fan." She's a beaut, ain't she?

Keep going for the worthwhile video, which includes some POV footage from the Stormtrooper's perspective.

Thanks to Krame, who flew his quadrocopter straight into a tree and couldn't get it down so he called the fire department and they said that, despite popular belief, they're not actually a quadrocopter retrieval service.

    I was really expecting it to hit a tree followed by an ensuing fireball.

  • It's like witchcraft!

    from the GIFs I thought that was a kid flying. **disappointment**

  • Karl Teariki

    I thought it was filmed on Endor... disappointed

    It still perplexes me how we haven't got a scaled up quadcopter that's like a hotel in the sky. Like that one giant floating airship in the avengers movie. IDFK what it's called because all marvel movies are junk, but whatever. You get what I mean.

    Because it doesn't scale like that. Pretty much nothing scales like that. Which is why a paper aeroplane will glide the length of a room, but one the size of a jet liner is like a brick.

    It's also to do with energy density and efficiency, ie, how much bang you get from a given weight of buck.

    Bottomline, you aren't going to see a giant quadcopter air craft carrier - without some massive technological breakthrough ( probably to do with aforementioned energy density ).

    That's a scouttrooper, not a stormtrooper..

  • Actually, according to this, both names are acceptable: http://bit.ly/Qv6A0C

    AMAZING! I WANT like a fat kid wants candy!
