Remember Olivier_C? The guy who posted a clip of his homemade Millennium Falcon drone flying over a snowy field about a month ago? Well, now he’s built a TIE Interceptor to go along with it.

According to Olivier, getting his latest drone to fly was far more strenuous than his experience with the Falcon, due to overweight issues that were preventing the quadcopter from going airborne. But after several hours of trimming panels and after going through 14 broken propellers — one test in which carbon splinters were sent dangerously shooting around his garage — he finally got the starfighter to take flight, as you can see in the video. The only question now is, which Star Wars spacecraft will he tackle next? Fingers are probably crossed for an X-Wing, but Olivier’s message, “run and hide, you tiny puny little ewoks,” on his Imgur page seems to hint at another Galactic Empire-inspired build. Until then, we’ll settle for a clip of the TIE Interceptor chasing the Millennium Falcon around.
