Squadron has been wiped out, hit the X-wing fighter is the rebel alliance’s last hope. Dive and streak in space when you desperately scream the star is Darth Vader in his tie fighter, laser blasting … until you use force to flip wing bold spiral roll and explode the Sith Lord’s Sky!
“Good shot, kid! Now come inside, it’s time for your dinner.”
Yes, if you ever wanted to graduate boring water peasant epic space pilots, now is your chance. From driving the new Star Wars quadruplets to remote control toys to the glorious pastimes of UAVs, challenging each other on melee from George Lucas’s classic movie.
Choose from a rebel T-65 X-wing Star Fighter, Darth Vader’s Imperial TIE Advanced X1 or a 74-Z speeder bike from “Return of the Jedi”, complete with Imperial Scout Trooper figure to ride it. They’re on sale in special edition packaging in December, and a Millennium Falcon model will be released in 2017.
The Jedi do not care about money, as the cost of fighting quadruplets is as high as £ 230 or $ 240. (Australian prices are not available, but UK prices are converted to AUD $ 390). See you at least two melee, this is an investment.
The models look perfect, hand-painted and packed with detail. There are some compromises to drone flight, such as vents in the TIE fighter’s wings and the little front legs required to hold the rotors. But the rotor blades are transparent and the vents are cleverly incorporated into the design, leaving the drones looking pleasingly like their on-screen counterparts.
The real selling star Wars-iness is the sound. In the whistle of the treble drones, the controller plays sounds, music, and movies that take you into the famous space war scenes.
The snippets of dialogue react to the action with phrases such as “Stay on target”, “I can’t shake him!” and “Good shot kid!” The music and sound effects help to really draw you into the Star Wars universe. The signature laser-blast “pew-pew!” noises are the absolute best.
The attention to detail is even extended to packaging. When you turn on each box, it lights up and plays the musical film. Each car has a different background and dialogue fragments. And the coming Easter eggs continue: The small screwdriver needed to install the battery is shaped like a tiny light sword.
The drones fire lasers at each other when battling. Up to 12 drones can fight each other at once. They interact with each other, counting down how many lives you have left when you’re hit.
You have three lives when you make a third unmanned plane that falls from the sky. They’ll even tell you another unmanned plane is short of life so you know who’s aiming.
Each Battle Quad goes from 0-35 mph in 3 seconds, topping out at 40 mph.
Diving and speeding in the sky, UAV can complete the beautiful spiral roll. The touch of the shoulder button controller and the unmanned aircraft will flip over.
You’ll get 6 to 8 minutes of flight from one charge. Rechargeable batteries are included.
There are several options if you are new to UAV flight training. You can set a height limit so the UAV can not fire and disappear or fly over the fence. Or you can learn to play without flying to the sky, the simulator application game you play using the actual controller to control the digital version of the unmanned aircraft on your phone screen. You will round the rat’s heart – but not arrogant.
