Baby Yoda has taken over the internet following the character’s debut on Disney+’s The Mandalorian. Now, light painter Russell Klimas is paying homage to the tiny green alien in the skies.
Klimas used a DJI Mavic drone and created the painting with a Lume Cube Strobe. Since it is quite a feat to present an accurate image of Baby Yoda in the sky, he combined Google Earth and an autonomous drone flight app called Litchi to work on the spectacle.
Through Google Earth, Klimas formed a “course” with a Baby Yoda photo as reference.
The route was then uploaded into the Litchi app, which helped to guide the drone in the directed path at a pre-set altitude for the Baby Yoda outline. With a tripod set on extremely long exposure, he captured the photo.
Watch Baby Yoda light up the skies, as he has done with the internet.

LET ME SEE THE BABY. THE BABY YODA SHOW. Created with @lumecube strobe, stars trails are from switching out colors for the baby. ISO 100 F stop 8 Shutter Speed 18 minutes Last time I attempted this I crashed my drone and it currently has two broken arms. Thanks to @Nikdelgado_ I have a drone I can use for the time being. I won’t be attempting to light the same way I did before. Not taking that chance again. I think using the drone mounts from Lumecube and having the lumecubes at an angle is what caused it to crash before I believe. This wasn’t the first time this had happened either because the mount snapped off, so be aware. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #lightpainting #lightpaintingblog #dronevideo #droneoftheday #dronenerds #droneflying #dronephotography #dronestagram #droneofficial #droneart #droneworld #droneaddict #dronelife #themandalorian #dronelightpainting #babyyodamemes #yodamemes #babyyoda #yoda
