    It's the fight sure to get a lot of buzz this holiday season.

    "Star Wars" X-Wing, Millennium Falcon and TIE fighter battle drones are coming to a store near you.

    "Everybody wants to fly one, and now they can," said Kyle Dahl with drone-maker Propel.

    Propel is focusing on "Star Wars," letting players fight with their smartphones.

    "There's an app on your phone and it registers your battle," Dahl said. "How many hits, who you hit, who you killed."

    Up to 24 drones can play at the same time, with top speeds of 35 mph.

    The drones go on sale Friday and cost $240 each.
