A Comic-Con drone display took place at this year's annual comic-worshipping festival in San Diego. The Star Wars character R2-D2 was hanging out by water when it decided to go for a sky-high stroll.

The playful Comic-Con drone soared above the crowds, over the waterfront scenery and grabbed everyone's attention before making a safe landing in the arms of the man who had launched R2-D2 into the sky.

The R2-D2 drone was the creation of artist Otto Dieffenbach. This drone was made from Styrofoam, making R2-D2 a lightweight travel companion for the weekend festival. This fun drone display provided an epic scene for Comic-Con fans across the San Diego waterfront. Star Wars fans and sci-fi lovers alike were dazzled by the flying robot that truly brought the festival to life.
