So, the group at Flite Test made a huge Death Star, and also a planet, to fly as multicopters. The Death Star is a "Y" copter with twin motors/props (six total). They also flew some new Star Wars Quads sold by the sponsors of the video (those are sort of neat, but priced way out of my ballpark).

some Video Logs about building the models, and making the video.

Oh, and a new video where the cores of the custom made Death Star and Planet multicopters got repurposed.
