Bring the magic of flight to a whole new dimension with the Propel Star Wars High Performance Battle Drones. Choose to fight for the Rebellion or the Empire through piloting the T65 X-Wing Fighter Star Ship, The Tie Advanced X1, or the 74Z Speeder Bike drones.
- Key Feature #1: Star Wars Battle Drone Companion APP
- Releasing on September 1st, 2017 for both IOS and Android devices the Star Wars Battle Drone Companion App will again create a groundbreaking immersive experience for drone pilots. Via Bluetooth connection to your controller the App will provide:
Major Piece #1: Battle Mode
- Bridging the gap between virtual gaming and the real world, Battle Mode allows Star Wars Battle Drone Pilots to experience the thrill of multiplayer dog fights that are inspired by the battles and missions of the Star Wars Universe.
- The Star Wars Battle Drones allow up to 12 players to simultaneously battle against one another in flight using actual infrared lasers. Each drone comes equipped with both emitting and receiving laser diodes that register strikes through visual, audio, and vibration feedback in the hobby grade controller.
Major Piece #2: Flight Simulator
- Learn to pilot your new drone in the virtual hangers of Planet Hoth, The Death Star or on the Moon of Endor. The controlled training environment will teach you the skills from the basics to advanced laser battling to ready you for actual flight.
Key Feature #2: Technology
- The Propel High Performance Star Wars Battle Drones use over 10 patents in their flight technology and communication that will allow the drones to “speak” to one another while battling in flight.
- LIFI is an incredible new technology that stands for light fidelity. LIFI is very similar to WIFI as it allows the Star Wars Battle Drones to transmit data to one another using light. The transfer of data using LIFI is 100 times faster than WIFI which creates the foundation of the live drone battling.
- IAT – Intelligent Awareness Technology
- Propel’s ground breaking IAT technology bridges the gap between virtual gaming and the real world. It unlocks a brand-new era for the gaming industry. IAT uses four latency-free wireless communication systems to create exciting and incredibly compelling gaming experience.
- Reverse Propulsion
- Drones usually pull air down to fly but the Star Wars Battle Drones push! This “reverse propulsion” technology has enabled Propel to pioneer Star Wars Drones which fly like they are supposed to.
Key Feature #3: Collectors Box
- The high-quality construction of the Star Wars Battle Drone Collectors Box sets this drone apart from any other drone. The box comes complete with a re-chargeable Light up display base for showing off your drone. From the first time, you open the collector box and every time thereafter it will play famous sound tracks from the Star Wars Universe. Hear the Star Wars theme song or the Imperial March of Darth Vader, listen to the sounds of each ship and iconic Star Wars characters.
Key Feature #4: Hobby Grade Controller
- The design of the Star Wars Battle Drone controller will match your ship choice; Black for the Empire and White for the Republic. The hobby grade controller features:
- A Light Saber Shaper repair screwdriver
- Metal Control Gimbles
- A Headphone jack to immerse yourself in the sounds of battle
- Trim control
- Push button auto calibration for your drone
- Laser triggers
- Push button auto star and land.

Not sure if I should tell my boys about this. I think they’d want to go and buy everything. Haha, but gotta love Star Wars.
I guess every force friday is a favorite day by the Star Wars fanatics. They get to see and discover items and enjoy to see how they relive star wars too.
I had to hide the screen while reading this so my husband wouldn’t see it. We are big Star Wars fans. I’ll have to see if they have this available here. Christmas is coming up before we know it and I think they would love to see these items under the tree this year!
My kids wouldn’t stop talking about this event. They love Star Wars
My family is such a Star Wars fan! I’m so glad I stayed out of Best Buy on Friday, LOL! I would have walked out with one of everything! My girls one the BB8 so bad!
I am geeking out at those RCs. How did I not hear about this Best Buy event? I need to swing by and take a look.
These looks really cool! I want my own little R2D2! I’m kicking myself that I somehow missed Force Friday though. My oldest would have loved it.
My husband would love to have these in his life! I cannot believe we didn’t hear about this! They have all the droids that a fan could ever ask for! I love that they react to the movies as well.
Love the drone but I know my husband would totally love it more than I do. A great Christmas gift idea for sure.
We are going to Best Buy this weekend. I am excited to see the all new Star Wars products. We are huge Star Wars fans in my house. We already have a life size R2D2.
Wow. I wish we have these in our country.
I was just at Best Buy over the weekend. I saw some of these products there as well. They looked so neat!
My kids like Star Wars a lot. I bet they would enjoy some of these gadgets for their new rooms.
Those Star Wars drones are going to be so fun! It’s really cool how technologically advanced these toys are.
How cool is this? We are major Star Wars fans in our house, so we NEED this.
These would make great gifts for the Star Wars fan. I know a few people who would love these.
Being a sucker for Star Wars that R2 D2 will definitely fit in my little collection. Just wished it was a little more bigger!

I had no idea that Force Friday even existed, and we love Star Wars! I had only heard about it, the night of, and the stores were almost closed by that time. I’ll have to keep my ears open for next years Force Friday. Those looked like some great items for any Star Wars fan.
My kiddo would have loved to go to this. He loves anything to do with Star Wars. This looks like it was a fun event for you guys to do. Star Wars is such a iconic thing that I am pretty sure every person on the face of the earth whether they’ve seen the movie or not knows with Star Wars is.
Oh wow what some amazing deals were to be had for Force Friday at Best Buy, I bet my other half would have love them!
