MUST SEE VIDEO: RC Star Wars Tie Fighter Interceptor!

rc tie interceptor


FromGig540's Youtube Channel.  You need to see this.  A fully working FLYING Tie Interceptor.  Impressive, most impressive.

Here is a Tie Interceptor I built from drawings and pictures I found on the Internet. Since the first time I seen the Interceptor in the movies when I was a Kid it was my favorite ship. I always liked the aggressive style to it and the sounds they made.

Here is a link to a forum to where I posted the entire build. Most of it I think

A lot has changed in RC Flight with electrics and with that it has opened a whole new doorway of possibilities. Due to the extremely powerful brushless motors and light weight and high powered Lithium Batteries you can pretty much make anything fly that you may not have had the chance to 20 years ago.
This was scratch built from balsa, blue foam from Lowes and some carbon fiber tubes and rods. Building with blue foam is fairly inexpensive and with the amount you get you can make a lot . These wont break your wallet and you can have hours of making up things to build and fly.
The Tie Interceptor is 3' long 34'' wide and 28'' tall and about 2 lbs. It is powered by 3530-10 Brushless and a Power Up 40 amp. ESC. Battery is a 25c 1650 3s Lithium. Control is done using Delta style wing configuration. Very easy and fun to fly.
So here is another video of the Star Wars Tie-Fighter Interceptor after some editing. Hope you guys enjoy!

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
