Star Destroyer Drone

Not really a drone, but it’s what everyone is calling R/C flying things now, because it’s “a cool word that sounds like military”  Anyway, the guys at Flite Test have made an R/C Star Destroyer, from Star Wars:

The thing is gigantic.  So big that they launch it from a truck.  A Truck.  Being so large, it’s a pain to fly, and not surprisingly, it handles like crap.  During the flight it lost the bridge, which didn’t really effect the flying, if anything it looks like it made it better.  The big problem was when they tried to do a loop.  It got stuck inverted.  That’s what you get for trying to do space acrobatics in vehicles not rated for atmosphere.
