Official Star Wars Drones Can Do Aerial Stunts and Shoot Lasers

 |  |  |  |  |  July 25, 2016

If you have dreamed of having space battles with your friends in your backyard, your dream is about to come true. Propel will release its official Star Wars drones this fall. Unlike some of the cheap Star Wars drones already on the market, the detail is supposed to be really nice on these. The propellers are clear and are attached to their underside so they are inconspicuous and as accurate to the movies as possible.

They can reach speeds up to 40 mph and can do 360-degree aerial stunts too. But that’s not all. They also have a battle feature, which is basically a game of mid-air laser tag with up to 24 friends. Obviously the Millennium Falcon is the fastest at 50 mph.

The company is taking advance reservations for each model right now. Just register with no down payment needed and you can save between $200 to $300(USD) for each drone you commit to. Now for the bad news. They won’t be available in the US and Canada when they launch this fall in Europe, so we might be waiting a while to get them here.
