Propel Star Wars Drones Now at Robbies Hobbies

Just in time for Star Wars: The Last Jedi®,  Robbies Hobbies has in stock the Propel RC Star Wars Drones. 


Speeder bikes, also known as jumpspeeders, were open-air repulsor lift vehicles that maximised speed and maneuverability over stability.

The model that saw service during the Clone Wars was the 74-Z speeder bike. These bikes were usually piloted by scout troopers and were able to jam comlinks. They were considered by some to be "death traps", but the speeder bikes were equipped with a head up display (HUD) showing information about the terrain ahead from sensors.


Darth Vader's fighter boasted greater speed and heavier firepower than standard Imperial TIE Fighters. It featured fixed-mounted twin blaster cannons and a cluster missile launcher.

High-performance solar cells were fitted into the fighter's curved wings.­­ Vader specified a custom cockpit to accommodate his armored suit


The X-wing played a major role in the Galactic Civil War following its capture on Fresia and the defection of its designers to the Alliance. It was heralded as the fighter that, in the hands of Luke Skywalker, destroyed the Death Star.

Later in the war it formed the backbone of the Alliance Starfighter Corps, defending Alliance ships and leading attacks on Imperial vessels and installations. Most importantly, when handled by an experienced pilot, it could perform on near equal terms with the Empire's high-performance TIE fighters.
