    It looks just like that speeder chase on the Forest Moon of Endor... if you squint really, really hard.
    In fact it's a stunt by hardcore drone-owners, who have emulated their favourite Star Wars scene by racing £150 quadcopters through the woods.
    The group of men - and they do seem to be mostly men - wear goggle-mounted monitors as they race radio-controlled machines at up to 70mph near their homes in the French Alps.
