NESIT’s R2D2 Parade Float

Darek, Tom, and Tim have been working hard the past few weeks to get an RC R2D2 ready for Wolcott’s Memorial Day Parade. It began with an old Pepsi cooler as the base to work off of. A salvaged hoverboard was used to drive R2, and hobbyist RC plane electronics were used to drive him. A 15W amplifier paired with an arduino played sounds and songs from the series.

It even made the news! (can be seen at around 0:18)
