Awesome Star Wars RC Tie Fighter

"Control, control. You must learn control."

Never have the words of Yoda been so pertinent. One slip and you might damage this precious radio-controlled flying Tie Fighter.

The amazing machine is the work of a Frenchman called "Olivier C". Grenoble-based Olivier has posted details of his build, which is essentially a Tie Fighter body clipped onto a modified drone, here

He's also the man responsible for this awesome RC Millennium Falcon. You can see how he built it here.

Now we just need to see both spaceships have a proper dogfight in the night skies.
