    It was every dorky kid's dream to fly the Millennium Falcon. One dorky kid grew up into an incredibly skilled dorky man, and he built his own. YouTube user Olivier C turned a quadricopter drone into a scaled-down, but very accurate, Millennium Falcon.

    Olivier C not only built the Falcon, but posted detailed instructions on how to do it oneself on the forum site RCGroups.com.
