|Overall rating 4.3 / 5|
The Propel Star Wars (Tie Fighter) quadcopter is a versatile flying drone popular with Star Wars fans. It can reach speeds of up to 56 kilometers per hour, is very durable and has a high construction.
You will learn from this report what we think about the model and what to expect.
A special feature of Propel Star Wars combat drones is that you can start a virtual combat game with other propeller-driven drones that use infrared radiation as laser beams.
If you are hit three times in a row, the drone will land fully automatically and you will lose. This feature is extremely unique as well as unusual.
The drone can be connected to a smartphone and you can run a real physics flight simulator, acquire new skills and gain a lot of experience to improve your skills.
Design and weight
The weight is only 122 grams, so it should be borne in mind that the drone is definitely a little sensitive to the wind and is more suitable for indoor use.
The look and design is completely mimicked in Tie Fighter from Starwars. The model is hand painted like everything and the quality is really very good. This is not a cheap Chinese product!
Camera, memory and FPV live image transmission
Unfortunately, this drone does not have a camera and therefore no FPV system. Rumor has it that at some point the Propel model will have an FPV camera built in. These rumors have spread over the Internet, but we cannot yet confirm if they are true.
Battery and flight time
The package includes 2 batteries, a battery for normal flight and a replacement battery. A single battery charge allows the drone to stay aloft for 6 to 8 minutes, then you need to charge it for approximately 30 to 40 minutes.
How can a drone fly?
The flight characteristics are very special and unique. The model flies reliably in the air and looks exactly like the Tie Fighter from the Star Wars movie.
In addition, noises and voices are heard from the remote control.
You can choose one of several levels of speed and take your time to decide on faster flight maneuvers. We recommend starting at the minimum speed and then gradually increasing it.
The model also works with counter-rotating rotors, which makes the flight even more stable.
Pros and cons
- Super detailed Star Wars drone in Tie Fighter style
- New propulsion system with counter-rotating propellers for better flight stability and higher speeds
- The maximum speed is 56 kilometers per hour.
- Hand-painted model with unique numbering
- You can start battles against other Propel drones.
- 3D stunts, aerial throws and other spectacular and challenging stunts are possible.
- The system has several speed levels to be able to slowly approach fast flight with a small model.
- Operating instructions in English.
- Unfortunately, the Tie Fighter drone does not have an FPV camera.
So far we have not noticed a single fun or gadget quadcopter that has such high quality processing and has such exciting features as the Propel.
Sure, you need some experience with an airplane to get the most out of your experience, but a flight simulator is designed for just that.
We can definitely recommend Tie Fighter for you. Here on Amazon there are cheap deals for this and other Propel models! *
