Victor Franco is a pretty amazing guy, in my book. He managed to custom build a remote controlled R2-D2 completely from scratch! It is so cool, in fact, that Victor and his R2-D2 get invited to film premieres.

I read through a lot of his Do-It-Yourself photos on his blog. The complexity of this job is pretty mind blowing. I really need to brush up on my handy man skills… right now! I want one of these to zip around through house.

PDF Manual – Download Victor’s 129mb R2-D2 Building Diary on how to build this amazing little guy from He has the book broken down into smaller files as well, if you wish.
