During the Nindroid conflict, Zane operated a slightly modified version of a Hover-Copter.
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, turning it into a Ninja-Copter, 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 the Ninja-Copter to defeat the other Hover-Copters until they retreated from the city.
