Everyone loves drones. While adorable little flying spy cameras for now, in several years’ time Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking both guarantee that they shall revolt, take over as the master race, and become our evil killer robot overlords, so let’s enjoy them while they last.
And while we wait, let’s take the time to appreciate the time and immense effort it must have taken for drone aficionados to come up with these fandom-based custom-built drones!
Star Trek: The USS Enterprise
The USS Enterprise is THE most prominent starship in pop culture. So it’s no surprise that a couple of people have tried building drone replicas:
Want your Enterprise to light up the night sky? Someone’s done that, too.
Star Wars: Millenium Falcon
Not to be outdone, friendly rivals Star Wars fans have also come up with their own version of the Millenium Falcon.
Back to the Future: Delorean
Great Scott! This great-looking custom built Delorean looks like it could really have come from the future!
As one of the world’s mightiest superheroes, Batman definitely deserves a drone.
A Superman plane has already made recent rounds, GoPro-style, so maybe Wonder Woman’s Invisible Jet might be flying around even as we speak.
Marvel: S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier
Marvel superheroes aren’t as known for their rides as much as their DC Counterparts, but this S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier is still awesome as a custom-built drone. Bonus: it can float on water, just like its comics / movie counterpart!
Avatar: C-21 Dragon Gunship
Easily one of the harder drones to work out. Movement and turning seems to be possible only by expert maneuvering of the propellers, and the hefty design is not the easiest structure to control while up in the air.
