This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Propel Star Wars Battle Drones. All opinions are 100% mine.
We are HUGE Star Wars fans in our house, as most of you know having devoted an entire Series to Star Wars DIYs and articles in the past. This epic space adventure has been a part of my and my husband’s lives since our earliest memories, and we have so much fun passing on our fandom to our children as they are growing up in a new era, with new incredible movies to fall in love with.
Being big kids at heart, as soon as I saw the new Star Wars Battle Drones I knew my husband would FREAK. It was the absolute perfect ‘big kid toy’ for him for Christmas.
There really are no words that can describe just how cool this toy is, which is why I created a video below so you can see it for yourself!!
The Star Wars Drones are performance laser battle quads that reach up to 35mph. Each Star Wars Battle Quads is hand painted to model quality finish, certified, numbered and finished to collector’s quality. We needed to RTFM (read the forking manual), but in under an hour my husband had the 74-Z speeder bike going from 0-30mph in under 3 seconds and doing loops!! Even though I had to surprise my husband with this particular present before Christmas for the post, I swear he was like a giant kid with the biggest smile on his face!!! And just wait, oh just wait until you open the packaging. It is EPIC, in typical Star Wars fashion….
SERIOUSLY THOUGH, the theme song starts playing and it lights up and it is just pure Disney Star Wars force magic. Even when you are putting the batteries into the controller, Darth Vader talks to you. This toy has absolutely blown my mind, I don’t even really want to call it a toy to tell you the truth. Toy sounds cheap, when these quads feel like so much more. Let’s call it, ‘the best present ever’ – shall we?
Here is our family video, when I gave my husband the BEST PRESENT EVER.
I am no George Lucas, but enjoy :). Lol
You can even battle other drones and keep score with an infrared laser that transmits to the app which keeps score. We didn’t get to try out that feature, as we need to find a friend with a drone…but it is ON when we do!! The controller has a little holder for your iPhone and everything.
For now, we are having a blast figuring out all of the aerial stunts. Woot woot! Fanciest speeder bike in the galaxy.
The age recommendation is 14yrs +, and there is a ‘starter mode’ as you are learning how to fly – which we used for about 15 minutes. After about an hour we let our 10 year old try it, after we felt like we understood its basic functionality ourselves so that we could stand with her and direct / teach her. She had it doing flips in under 2 minutes. Just whatever you do – read the manual! It’s not that long, and you will love your new Star Wars battle quad so much more when you understand how to use it properly and all of the incredible things it can do. Mind = blown.
These Star Wars battle quads are the absolute perfect present for the ultimate Star Wars fan, just in time for the holiday season!
A huge thank you again to Propel Star Wars Battle Drones for allowing me to try out and review their new battle drones. You have made these Star Wars mega fans supremely happy. Best present ever.
