DIY Star Wars Rey’s Speeder Bike Quadcopter is No Scrapheap

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  November 30, 2015


Makers have proven that quadcopters and Star Wars go well together. So much so that even Disney is starting to cash in. Here’s another great example of this winning combination, courtesy of Michal Miszta aka The Model Maker.

The custom made quadcopter measures about 13″x 9″x 5″ and weighs around 2lb (740g). Michal 3D printed, finished and painted the speeder’s body as well as the quadcopter’s arms. He reinforced the body with fiberglass cloth and resin to help it survive crashes. The Rey figurine, on the other hand, is made from styrofoam, modeling clay, and bits of cloth, all of which Michal also painted and weathered.

As you can see the quadcopter proved to be too heavy for the motors that Michal installed, so he’s planning to upgrade to a much stronger one. Check out his website for the build log, 3D files and parts list.
