A French tech crafter known for creating "Star Wars"-inspired drones introduced his latest innovation to the world in a video this week.

Oliver C. attaches custom housing to regular quadcopters. His latest, a mockup of an Imperial Star Destroyer, is equipped with LED lights and is capable of flying both during the daytime and at night. It also has a GoPro camera, radio system and flight controller installed, according to the YouTube video description.

You can also see it shoot "lasers," which are sure to strike fear in the hearts of the rebel scum.

The video, which is just more than two minutes long, shows Olivier C.'s most recent invention soaring over a grassy area in southern France. It flies close to the ground and high above the trees as its multiple propellers spin on either side and LED lights glow in the sunset.
