  • 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.

    • He murdered baby Yoda!

    • Can you paint it of grey as in the series? As for the rest it's amazing! Good job.

    • Very cool project but I wish they would've given him an extra week to make the canopy look better🤷‍♂️

    • @Erinola DaranijoAjibola yeah

    • Woah:-). James did you type all this, that's quite cool.

  • Make panther claws

  • Bogdan caling Palpatine cute killed me for like 3 minutes, that was amazing and made my day! Thanks so much!

  • your guys's next project should be cross-breeding to create the Yoda species

    • Can you please make falcon wings from Falcon and the Winter soldier

  • Make the whole Mandalorian suit

  • 8:59 My heart!!

  • if you are from florida like like please thank you

  • Tem algum brasileiro vendo o vídeo a garaio da like aí doido

  • so you made a drone

  • Little kid be like hmm mobile game good

  • Amazing video

  • Baby Yoda's Floating Cradle! (HACKLORIAN: Chapter 4)

  • Wow!!

  • You kill the baby yoda🤣

  • Now we need Sith Trooper, Old Republic trooper, Clone trooper, Stormtrooper, Rebels, First Order and Resistance helmets.

  • It not baby Yoda it's grogo

  • Baby Yoda was not harm during this video

  • u killed the baby

  • james your projets are fantastic man this is my request please make falcon red wing

  • Can you please make falcon wings from Falcon and the Winter soldier

  • 8:54 NOOOOOOO

  • People in the 80s: we are going to have flying cars and hover boards in the future. People in the future: RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

  • Grogu looks like hes on a diet

  • First step of parenting: saw off the back of your child's head. Then poor your child's guts into a bin. Now you are done. PAY ME

  • Look how they massacred my boy.

  • This video was put out on my birthday...

  • 9:00 HE KILLS BABY YODA!!!!!!

  • 8:54 This is what Anakin did to the Younglings 😂😂

  • please can you go in the street with this and record people reactions ? 😂😂 (sorry for my bad english, i'm french)

  • they didn't activate windows ;(

    • you should hook up the controller to the wrist gauntlet

  • Armor????

  • what did you do with grogu😤thats a dislike

  • Where are the batteries?

  • Next step kill the baby yoda

  • Nooooooo baby yoda

  • Hey, can you make something thing like this for a real baby.

  • WTF 😂😂😂👌

  • Poor poor baby yoda。゚(゚´ω`゚)゚。... lost part of his brain.

  • Imagine a ship like the death star

  • Here @ 999k views

  • Nice beanie


  • This guys looks a bit weird but i like him lol. Also, baby yoda at 10:20 looks weak af 😂

  • you should make the worlds biggest gun please research the world largest gun and bbet it also can you give me a shout out for this amazing idea also ive been watching you as long ive have had ever held a phone im 11 by the way youre welcome for the idea

    • @Woody Chelton hey someone actually made the worlds largest revolver and i want him to see someone who made it like 10 x bigger

    • wow that is such an original idea

  • Baby yoda wants it you make it for me

  • you should hook up the controller to the wrist gauntlet

  • Surely it would have been better to be made to follow someone and use the front panel on the original design to place the camera.

    • @Spyral thanks but I had already read it and was putting my personal opinion to it.

    • Read the pinned comment. They said they couldve added it if they had more time.

  • Honestly when I saw this I thought it was gonna be an April Fools joke, but making it a drone was genius (even if some surgery was required)

  • You want to check out the flight duration. And test it how long it will last with the receiver.

  • You guys should make a remote control in one of the gauntlets

  • You guys should make the falcon wings and the winter soldier arm

  • Stop calling him baby Yoda! He's not Yoda! He's the same species (waddle) but not the same creature.

  • Their is no place in the galaxy for you to hide for Mando after doing these cruel things to Baby Yoda.

  • Now that is amazing!

    • I think we found out what the flying tic tacs UFOs were.

  • It's all fun and games until there's a real baby in the cradle (─.─||)

  • U didn't paint it gray?

  • I think

  • I am makeing that at home

  • how dare you do that to baby yoda

  • Baby yoda is probably traumatized from being cut open and having his guts spilt out in this video

  • You literally gutted grogu! Lol it's just a head in a pod!

  • WHY THE HELL DID YOU HURT BABY YODA??!/??!?!!? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  • YOU KILLED HIMMMMMM AAAAAAA!!!!!!!!?!?!?!?!??!?!!?!?!?!!!!!!

  • This is the real future industries

  • this man is bringing fantasy to life, change my mind

  • 6:30 That Song.................. It makes This Sopoo EPICC

  • Guy looks so bored when he talks to us

  • Hacksmith: This Baby Yoda’s kinda big Me: *Sees them cut the back of Grogu’s head get cut off and sees the beads get cut out of him Me: This is twisted! Just wrong! Disclaimer: Lol, just a joke, I finished the vid.

  • These people went from building Mjollnir, to literally flying with jetpacks. These guys are making HISTORY! 👏👏👏

  • I think we found out what the flying tic tacs UFOs were.

  • Who the hell disliked this video and why

  • 8:41 Not to complain but you could’ve made the cradle bigger instead of committing the war crime of cutting the baby yoda

  • Hacksmith: we love baby Yoda😚😚😚 Also hacksmith: deestroooy the chiiild

  • you killed baby yoda


  • You guys should do the real-life attacking chess pieces from harry potter or something like that where they actually attack each other.

    • So basically 32 human size deadly robots

  • They look so dead inside why do somthing

  • Ben! You monster! You sawed off part of Baby Yoda's head! In all seriousness, I wonder is it possible to link the cradle to the helmet so that when they are near each other the cradle will fly on it's own and follow the wearer of the helmet?

  • poor baby yoda :C

  • Good job

  • When this baby hits 88 miles per hour you’re gonna see some serious stuff!

  • All thanks to hacker LINOTECH2 on Instagram who got my score upgrade wow he is a genius

    • 0-0 the guy making this cradle looks like one of the art teachers at my school. A really scarily accurate lookalike

  • All thanks to hacker LINOTECH2 on Instagram who got my score upgrade wow he is a genius

  • Im just waiting for episode 5 can’t wait😁😁

  • I can’t watch ep 5 and 6

  • I think that In a future video you could upgrade it to have the camera regignize the mando suit and follow it. It turned out great and loving the vids!

  • Bro why could you make EDITH in spiderman far from home which works

  • Do more iron man stuff

  • Hey im wondering if the jetpack will be able on the 8th april today or 4th aug

  • I think you should try to boil water by burning pure oxygen that you electrified out of water

  • Sir what a app in pc solid works how to dowload this Please help me I make something 3D Desgin Please Make this video

  • 0-0 the guy making this cradle looks like one of the art teachers at my school. A really scarily accurate lookalike

  • The fifth chapter is supposed to be released but it isnt

    • Videos have always come out at 4PM EST on Thursdays for the past 5 years ;-) I think we know when our videos are supposed to release!

  • You can always make it follow Mando around as well. That would totally eliminate the need for the remote and you could set a default altitude.

    • @Spyral missed that, thanks for letting me know! Maybe they'll be able to revisit it a few years 🤞
