"This project was an obvious choice to combine my interest and experience in RC (remote control) flight with my love of 'Star Wars' stuff," Woodsworth added. "I like always having some strange project on the work bench and this one was next in line, an attempt to build a version of the Imperial Speeder Bikes from the movie that I could 'get into' and fly around myself."
For those who want to experience the flight, you can take a look at the awesome footage here (or click on the video above).
And for those craftsmen who want to make your own, Andrew posted his construction specs on Makezine.com. This looks like a great project for those inclined. I'm just glad Andrew picked the flying scene from Endor instead of say, first person footage of death in a Sarlacc pit.
