Today we take a look at something rather unusual for KitGuru – a close up unboxing of a new Drone by company Propel. Propel have been one of the few companies lucky enough to snag a Star Wars license. Their goal was to create a series of battle drones based around the Star Wars theme. We are fortunate enough to get our hands on the Tie Advanced X1 Battle Drone battle drone today and we wanted to share the unboxing experience.

Propel sell three of these right now and they ship in glorious hand crafted collector boxes which I go into some detail to show in my video above. They also sell the 74-Z Speeder Bike and the T-65 X-Wing StarFighter versions. You can see the home page for all three Battle Drones over HERE.
I don’t want to ruin the surprise too much for you and go into details on the unboxing experience, so please watch the video above! If you are interested you can buy the Tie Advanced X1 Battle Drone for £199.99 over HERE. Demand has been high so you might need to be patient to source stock in the United Kingdom. We have been told they are also available at Maplins, Currys, Argos, Disney Store and Hamleys this year.
These are no ordinary Drones however, they accelerate to speeds of 35 mph in less than three seconds and a ‘unique fight control algorithm’ enables special manoeuvres that mimic Star Wars flight patterns, such as forward moving corkscrew rolls and innovative reverse propulsion technology means that the ships can fly in the most lifelike way. I will be publishing my ‘action’ video very soon – for now you have to make do with the unboxing experience.
KitGuru says: If you liked the unboxing, wait until you see our Battle Drone in action. Luke Skywalker look out!
