Hover-Copters were aerial surveillance drones that created Borg Industries to protect New Ninjago City.

During the Nindroid Conflict, Zane operated a slightly modified version of a Hover-Copter.


The Surge

The Hover-Copters were created at Borg Industries. When the Digital Overlord hacked the Borg systems, it took control of the Hover-Copters. One of them was flying near Borg Tower when it was taken over and soon discovered the ninja attempting to escape. Zane, however, managed to hack the vehicle using his Techno Blade and used it to save the students, Master Wu, and Nya from the factory. After they had been sent back to the academy, Zane used it to defeat the other Hover-Copters until they retreated from the city.

The Art of the Silent Fist

A Hover-Copter scans a man, looking for the ninja.


The ninja search for the compact converted jiggly compressor at Ed & Edna's Scrap N Junk, which would allow Zane's NinjaCopter to run on solar power.

The Curse of the Golden Master

Zane dropped the ninja off at the city using his Hover-Copter.

Enter the Digiverse

Zane used his Hover-Copter to reach the reboot activation port faster.

Codename: Arcturus

Zane traveled to the Nindroids' launch site on his Hover-Copter.

The Void

After being spotted, Nya, P.I.X.A.L., Wu, and Garmadon escaped on a Hover-Copter.

The Titanium Ninja

Zane lands in his Hover-Copter when he entered the atmosphere. He uses it to infiltrate the city in order to defeat the Golden Master.


Hover-Copters are armed with lots of weapons, ranging from micro missiles to large-scale rockets mounted on the secondary rear thrusters.
