There was a lot of love for the Rebellion when it came to flying toys revealed on Force Friday back in September of last year. But at this year's Toy Fair, Spin Master is finally giving the Empire its due with a flying RC version of Darth Vader's custom TIE Advanced X1 fighter. A pair of ducted propellers hidden inside the TIE Advanced fighter's cockpit and fuselage power the RC toy, which flies more like a remote control aeroplane than a quadcopter using rudders on the wings. Because it doesn't have a hover mode, just forward flight, the $US70 ($99) toy needs a lot of room to stay airborne which means it's for outside use only. But its included 2.4 GHz controller gives it an impressive range of about 61m from your own Death Star/house.
