  • 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.
