Hacker Turns TIE Fighter Toy Into Flying Drone [Video]

Many of us have had toys that should fly (like my Naboo Starfighter) that, unfortunately, couldn’t actually fly. Holding the toy in the air while running and using your imagination was the closest you could get. However, one anonymous toy hacker decided to alter his new Hasbro First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter so that it could actually fly.

The anonymous toy tinkerer (known only as “woodpiece”) uploaded pictures and a video to Imgur showing how he turned the simple TIE fighter into an operational quadcopter. Although it involves a 3D printer and some drilling, the process seems pretty straightforward.

All the little guy needs now is some blasters, and he’s all set to go.
