This French dude is on a mission to make every Star Wars ship into a drone

At this point, if you don’t know who Oliver C is, chances are pretty good that you’ve been living under a rock. Over the past couple months, this guy has won the heart of the Internet with his awe-inspiring, fully-functional, and totally badass replicas of popular Star Wars ships. And he’s showing no signs of stopping.

It all started back in February, when a video showcasing his custom-built Millennium Falcon drone went viral. Shortly thereafter, he built a Tie Interceptor drone. Now, he’s back with yet another hard-core creation — an RC Imperial Star Destroyer drone. This dude is on a roll.

Much like his previous Star Wars spacecrafts, Oliver’s Destroyer drone is constructed from a lightweight foam shell that slips onto the chassis of a Prophecy 335 — a carrier drone of the Frenchman’s own design. It’s a completely custom build, but as usual, Oliver C has posted the build instructions for both the drone and the foam shell online, so you can make one yourself if you’re not afraid of a little DIY legwork.

This isn’t likely the last we’ll see of Oliver either. He’s already posted pictures of the next ship he plans to build — the T-47 Airspeeder. You know, the one that Luke used to take out that AT-AT in the Battle of Hoth.

Apparently this guy isn’t going to stop until he’s made a flyable version of every Star Wars ship there is. At this point the only question is which one he’ll make next. The infamous X-Wing Starfighter, perhaps? The Lambda Shuttle? What about Boba Fett’s ship, the Slave I? Our money is on the last, but it’s really anyone’s guess.
