  • Ben did a fantastic job on the engineering on this project, something it seems a lot of people in the comments don't realize. Creating an odd egg shape fly, isn't simple, and the mechanism to open the hood was genius -- he laser cut a framework and tiny gears to use a single servo to allow for the actuation of the hood. The tuning required to get it to hover properly, also, not trivial. Weeks of work went into this project and it really hurts to see so many people trash it because it doesn't look identical to the show. Our channel has never been known for making screen-replica projects. We always focus on the function, which is why it's called Make it Real, which is why we're not just a prop-making channel. Not to mention, if you actually pay attention to Grogu's cradle in the show? It changes shape/design/color between episodes. Even the show creators didn't have a fixed design. So literally everyone being like paint it grey... it was grey. And it was white. And it looked different, depending on the episode you watch. There is no way to win. At the end of the day, it hovers. If we had more time, we could even make it hover automatically, and follow me. But that probably wouldn't have been enough for the haters either. You can either enjoy the content for what it is, or seriously, just unsubscribe. I'm tired of people expecting the sun and the moon from every single episode. We have spent so much time, money, and effort making these projects and videos. If you don't like them -- just leave. If you want to make a better one, be my guest, but don't be surprised if it turns into a year long quest of insanity to try and get right, where it still doesn't work properly. This one still took over a month to make, and personally, I'm proud of it. And that should really be enough for everyone. It's the Hacksmith channel, and this is a Hacksmith level project, no matter what you may think.

    • Hold Up, you can make it follow you? I really wish I had your skills. Sometimes seeing everybody else with these amazing gifts makes me question my purpose in this world. I feel like a nobody. (But yeah could you make a spare one with a little more size that I can buy when I get a lot of money? Bigger so I don't have to cut into my baby yoda.)

    • Did Ben take a look through the comment section? I sure hope not

    • Hi

    • this was really cool. i love drone building stuff

    • Looks amazing and actually works. Not cgi but actually real!

  • Why does everyone keep calling him baby Yoda... he is Grogu two completely different characters from the same species.

  • Should’ve made it follow hacksmith

  • i wanna make stuff like this but im poor as fuck

  • Hacksmith video is awesome

  • Jet. Suit iron man🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

  • 9:00 *GASP* How dare you!

  • Aluminum didn’t break because you have sticks instead of arms

  • This is seriously impressive. It’s crazy seeing such simple materials come together into something awesome

  • They killed GROGU!!!!

  • My favourite build so far


  • Please sponsor my videos on your next video????

  • Baby yoda's name is grogu

  • excuse me but who is "Baby Yoda"? I know who is Grogu Grogu have Yellow Lightsaber and looks like Yoda but as a baby

  • Can I please have it

  • Everybody hack Smith can help us be better people all we have to do is ask him to make a stuff since he can make a bunch of stuff like this and we can help so I’ve been really wanting some really cool stuff but he hast to let us have it we can change we could be heroes

  • "Grogu's Floating Cradle" Who's floating cradle?

  • ben just committed a war crime and mando would definitely not be pleased

  • killer

  • why does this video has sooo many dislikes? Strange indeed

  • This video gets dark at around 8:52, not for the squeamish

  • It's not baby young because at the end of the Mandalorian series picked up baby Yoda and baby Yoda Yoda trained Luke so

  • Hacksmith: "Lets design a floating cradle" Computer: *ACTIVATE WINDOWS*

  • If you made a bigger one, you could have added a mechanism that had a steel plate barrier protecting baby yoda from the outside world, you know what I’m talking about.🦑🦬🐲🕷

  • I had a thing at my school called STEM. Science Technology Engineering Math. The exact same thing as steam but without art.

  • Baby yoda is safe! Well, most of him.

  • Im scarred for life when i saw what they did to baby yoda

  • he killed baby yoda


  • I know this is wired but could you make a ps4 drone that would cool

  • Execute order 66

  • I love that video soooo mutch

  • That was amazing!!!

  • Baby Gouda in his stroller having a great time and then James comes out with a lite saber Baby you baby yoga head fly ing

  • 11:39 aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

  • Tell him to cut his nails

  • '2:48' 🤣 Ok that is the best: *Injapp*^^ 🌶️ disregard others they're BS 📌

  • he killed him

  • Wow

  • Republic Commando Forever

  • I like Ben😂


  • why is ben so dead inside

  • You guys always do excellently great work. You all at Hacksmith Industries are so innovative, imaginative and awesome.

  • Megusto este vídeo👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘♥♥♥

  • Ok I feel bad for telling you this but I think you might want to use something a little thicker on the outside because you could be able to see the components also if you open the crate Lao you can see the components so maybe put some cardboard there and color it and bathe get a cloth to act as a blanket for baby yoda but I think I’m asking to much other than that it’s an amazing build and when you were flying the Grayson I was very surprised to se to bat it wasn’t shaking or having no urbulans that’s what happens every time I fly a drone anyways thankue for the video

  • We have witnessed a baby yoda murder he cut into his brains and pulled his clothes off

  • 8:54 this is not the way

  • Why haven’t any company done this. This is like Every Star Wars fan dream drone

  • Its so cool . Its awesome how they make this things pure genius. Also can the pod carry a dog or cat?

  • I know it's petty of me, but I actually get a little triggered when people call Grogu, Baby Yoda. To me, it is Grogu or The Child.

  • if the baby yoda they used was real it would feel very very uncomfortable

  • you make all of these amazing things real and yet you still aren't sponsored by disney. i mean cmon \_(*_*)_/

  • Idea: Do a Make It Real Project, but make all FNaF Animatronics.

  • "this baby yoda is a little big" SO YOU CUT OUT HIS HEAD?!

  • That was a professionally trained cosplaying baby

  • James, you spend so much time building stuff like this for our entertainment and i speak for us all when i say I appreciate it so i think this is a question multiple people have been wondering, do you take any time off to go on a few dates?

    • @Hacksmith Industries they are crazy. Your creations are amazing. My favorite in particular was the cybertruck. The power loader is a close second

    • I lost my 20s and now my 30s to this channel. And most people just complain about my projects :(

  • he has no emotion

  • It would be nice if Darth Vader was still alive so he could fight some of the strong people

  • This is amazing you guys are great

  • I'm really curious to know what happens if it closes while hovering. I assume it would fall because there is insufficient air intake but I'm not sure.

  • I love how he casually mutilates Grogu.

  • The super white paint that came out of the brown jug made me laugh super hard.

  • To bad you don't know how to make antigravity like me..I know how it can be done.

  • Taking care of my son grogu you are.... Thank you I must

  • I have the exact same baby yoda plush or whatever does that mean I’m cool :o

  • It’s grogu the cutest character ever

  • In fhe thumbnail it looked amazing and baby yoda looked like baby yoda but after (you know what if you wat hed the video) it feels different

  • Dude imagine the time and money that went into this these guys deserve more subs

  • We get it baby yoda has got to die

  • poor grogu

  • Will you ever run out of content

  • Choose: A. Baby Yoda B. Ewoks C. Bird Things D. Palpatine Me: I chose D Every 5th grader: "GAY!!!!!!!" Everyone else : "What???????"

  • Isn't that considered baby Yoda abuse


  • they treat a baby carriage as like if its a Russian creation that's going to beat the Americans

  • I just witnessed a murder of baby Yoda. Nonetheless amazing job

  • You killed baby Yoda!

  • You killed grogu

  • you could have put a magnet on a Roomba that would push a magnet on the cradle, though I guess that wouldn't be making it real. as a kid who hates school i wanna say these videos changed my life and is honestly making me consider a future in engineering!

  • That scissor glide in 7:21 is just perfect

  • when is this for sale?

  • When your baby doesn't fit in your stroller, "zzzzzz"

  • The sound is the worst

  • It grogu

  • Give him a seat don’t just shove them in there
