Drone Version of Last Exile's Vanships Under Development
posted on by Eric Stimson
If watching Last Exile made you dream of zipping through the skies in a vanship, your dream is getting a little closer to reality. EnRoute, an unmanned vehicle manufacturer, is developing drones based on Tatiana's vanship.
Preorders for the drone will begin on December 1 at Gonzo's official store, Gonzo Style; hopefully you have 198,000 yen ($1,775) handy. Also, Makoto Kobayashi, Last Exile's mechanical designer, will be at Tokyo Comic Con from December 2 - 4 to showcase a special edition of the drone. Con-goers can also see a full-size version of a vanship from Last Exile: Fam, The Silver Wing.
Another iconic flying machine, the Möwe from Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, has also been developed — although as a full-size, flyable glider.
