This Fan-Made Radio-Controlled Millennium Falcon might be the coolest thing you see today

Like so many eager fans across the galaxy, seeing the Millennium Falcon triumphantly take flight once again in the Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens trailer brought us to tears. Well, we just about relived that moment this morning when we saw this amazing fan-made remote controlled Falcon, built and piloted by redditor Olivier-FR.


Final result. Watch her fly, fastest in the galaxy!

Designed to be carried by an RC quadcopter (similar to a drone), Olivier-FR used an insulant, expanded polystyrene, in 20 and 30mm thickness. Using a self designed template, he carefully cut and assembled the ship.

 

See it take it’s maiden voyage:

And then encounter a bit of trouble on Hoth:
