Watch this remote controlled flying R2-D2 drone take its first flight

In celebration of Comic Con  2015, an engineer by the name of Otto Dieffenbach decided to create a flying R2D2 drone. The full sized figure can be seen taking to the skies in the video above. It seems Dieffenbach has a number of other flying figures including Superman, Harry Potter, Snoopy, and well, just about anything really. You can learn more about the familiar flyers at the official site or the YouTube channel.
