"Popular toward the final years of the Galactic Republic, FA-4 droids were commonly used to drive dignitaries on diplomatic missions."

FA-4 pilot droids were a model of pilot droid used during the era of the Galactic Republic.


"Either way, they became highly valued, not only for their skills in the cockpit, but also for their discretion when it came to keeping their masters' travel plans under wraps."

The FA-4 was a pilot droid model with a thin, spindly frame mounted on a wheeled unit. They had ball heads, and at over two meters in height were tall enough to pilot many starships,[3] including Punworcca 116-class interstellar sloops.[1] FA-4 units had the unordinary ability to be discreet regarding their masters' travels.[2]


FA-4 droids were utilized in the last decades of the Galactic Republic,[3] and during the Clone Wars. The Sith Lord Count Dooku, head of the Confederacy of Independent Systems, owned at least two FA-4 pilot droids, which he used onboard his Punworcca 116-class interstellar sloop solar sailer.[1] One droid piloted the Sith from the planet Geonosis to the planet Coruscant after the Separatists' defeat during the First Battle of Geonosis.[4] This droid was destroyed when Dooku crashed onto the planet Vanqor. The pirate Hondo Ohnaka later held the droid's face plate.[5] At some point afterwards Dooku would acquire another of this droid.[6]

FA-4 units also worked on Coruscant itself, and around the time of the Battle of Coruscant, these droids bustled around the Senate Building[3] and the Senate Office Building.[7]
