The Empire is making some headway on Planet Earth -- after someone already built a TIE Interceptor -- a "Star Wars" fan has successfully built a 15-foot-long flying Star Destroyer, made from insulating foam panels, Gorilla Glue, packing tape, and a can of Rustoleum. The First Order is coming, folks.

Peter Sripol's Star Destroyer replica flies using three motor-driven propellers, along with a pair of servos to operate the elevons at the rear. Check out the flight test below:
