Who hasn't dreamed of piloting an X-Wing and taking down the Death Star? Or, if you're a fan of one of the most menacing movie villains of all time, taking the controls of Darth Vader's TIE fighter and destroying rebel scum?
Power up the engines and take flight in quadcopters replicated after ships of the Star Wars universe. Use the agility of your Speeder Bike to zip around the forest moon, fly at breakneck speeds through a trench to deliver devastating damage in your X-Wing, or use the push button barrel roll to evade the enemy in your very own advanced TIE fighter. All of these incredible flying machines can easily make the Kessel Run at a blinding 35 miles per hour.
Each intricately detailed quadcopter's flight characteristics are tuned for battle with other drones. Fire IR blasts to disable enemy ships or upgrade your weapons system with a laser module for expert dogfights. Of course, that is if you can bear to take these collector-quality battle quads out of the included display case complete with light illumination and soundtracks.

Long, long ago in your own living room….
Star Wars is more than just a series of movies; it's a cultural phenomenon that has thrilled generations of people. And now you can take part in the saga in a whole new way when you take the controls of a Star Wars Battle Quad. Each tiny indoor drone is styled after an iconic ship from Star Wars. The beautifully detailed ships fly incredibly fast, maneuver with tight control, and interact with other quads in battles where you can safely shoot the enemy out of the sky!
Star Wars Battle Quads can achieve flight speeds of up to 35 mph. Their unique reverse propulsion system puts the four rotors on the bottom of the aircraft. Not only does this preserve the aesthetics of the Star Wars ships, but it also gives them incredible performance in both speed and maneuverability.
To help you stay on target, the ships have varying speed limiters and a barometric pressure sensor to control altitude stability. Once you’ve learned how to become a squad leader, remove the limitations and start blasting ships out of the sky.
Pick your side
Each Battle Quad has the ability to battle in a melee of up to 12 ships. The drones are equipped with a built-in infrared blaster and receiver, allowing you to maneuver your ship behind another quad, fire your blasters, and take it down. After three direct hits, the disabled ship will safely descend to the ground.
Use the force (and the controller)
Precise attention to detail has been paid to every element of Star Wars Battle Quads, including the controller. Each controller has either a Galactic Empire or Rebel Alliance theme, depending on which ship you choose. The intuitive joystick controls give you freedom of movement on three different axes. The controller is full of useful features like a smartphone holder and a light saber themed screwdriver as well as surprising elements like haptic feedback, voice announcements, and even a soundtrack!
Battle Quads' controllers hold even more secrets. Triggers at the top of the controller allow you to fire your weapons in battle, and additional bumper buttons enable your craft to execute a perfect barrel roll with a simple trigger squeeze. The 360º aerial stunt is an amazing feat on its own, and it comes in handy when outmaneuvering the enemy in battle.
Collectors' quality display case
Each Battle Quad comes enshrined in an incredibly well-made display case. Remove the wax seal and open the cover to be greeted by your drone, attractively presented at an angle resting under a lucite box. Lifting the cover simultaneously illuminates the box and plays one of several sound bites and soundtracks pulled directly from the Star Wars films. The sounds are different for each ship style and are specific to the ship you chose.
The display case is recharged using the same included cable that charges your quadcopters' batteries.
Charge while you fly
Each Battle Quad comes with a pair of lithium-ion batteries specifically designed for that drone, seamlessly fitting into its detailed exterior. The result is a completely authentic-looking replica of the ship that can actually take flight. Each lightweight battery provides nearly ten minutes of flight time and can be recharged on the included charger in about forty minutes.
Additionally, each quadcopter comes with a matching cover for the battery compartment for use while your Battle Quad is in its display case.
Each officially licensed Star Wars Battle Drone has been replicated from its film counterpart in extreme detail, down to the R2 unit peeking out of the X-Wing. The physical forms have been reproduced and hand painted with stunning results, recreating the ships for you to fly.
Select your ship
Star Wars Battle Quads are currently available in three styles: T-65 X-Wing starfighter, TIE Advanced X1, and 74-Z Speeder Bike.
