R2-D2 awakens as a high-flying custom drone

A decade removed from the Star Wars prequels, R2-D2 takes flight once again with this impressive custom drone.

Built in eight days by aerial cinematographer Don Melara, this R2-unit doesn't merely fly around and look cool; it features a moving head, LED jetpack lights and a sound system that can emit the little droid's signature beeps, whistles and whirls.

There's even a little camera in Artoo's eyes ... for capturing video, presumably, and not for project hologram messages.
