I got into FPV (First Person Video) multi-rotor racing a few months ago. The fast, low level flying instantly reminded me of the Star Wars speeder bike Endor chase scene from Return of the Jedi. This project was an obvious choice to combine my interest and experience in RC (remote control) flight with my love of Star Wars stuff. I like always having some strange project on the work bench and this one was next in line, an attempt to build a version of the Imperial Speeder Bikes from the movie that I could “get into” and fly around myself.
Have lots of construction fun with the LEGO Star Wars Flash Speeder! As the Battle of Naboo rages on, bring the Naboo security forces and their Gungan ally Captain Tarpals into the action with the maneuverable LEGO Star Wars Flash Speeder.
Adam Woodworth, a hardware engineer at Google built the pretty cool Speeder bike with a 1:6 scale Hasbro Power of the Force series Speeder bike, and the talented crafter has added a layout of four 7″ rotors driven by 880kv 28mm motors in order to provide enough power to lift the Speeder bike. Moreover, the scoot trooper features an interchangeable head with camera to bring you first person view. After the break, check out the images and video about the FPV Star Wars Speeder bike or head to for more detailed making steps.
