    This is a video of a radio controlled pizza rat that Jesse Wellens of PrankvsPrank (previously: riding Aladdin's magic carpet) built and drove around NYC subway stations and sidewalks scaring people. I thought that lady in the screencap I used was going to fall off the subway ... / Continue →

    This is Amaro And Walden's Joyride, a worthwhile video from London-based The Line Animation starring cartoon characters Amaro And Walden cruising around town in a real-life R/C Jeep. It looks like they're having a great time. You know, me and my crew just like to cruise aroun... / Continue →

    These are the teensy $50 Bandai Namco R/C Star Wars spaceships that will be available this August. The blades only measure about 4-inches in length, and a 3-minute charge gets you about 4-minutes of flight time with a range of about 16-feet. That is not very impressive. Stil... / Continue →

    The B-Unstoppable is an unfortunately named quadrocopter/tank hybrid currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. The tankocopter can fly for about nine minutes, drive for 12 - 18 (or any combination of the two), includes a 1280 x 1020 video camera, and costs $130. Obviously, fo... / Continue →

    This is the firefighting scene that Youtuber RC Live Action (links to his channel with a ton more videos) played out with little radio controlled fire trucks. An R/C oil tanker catches fire after driving off a bridge and the R/C fire department has to come put it out. Looks l... / Continue →

    These are the radio controlled witch and wizard planes designed by R/C enthusiast Otto Dieffenback. You can buy a kit of either one for $150, but all the electronics you have to provide yourself. I'm going to make enough of them to form my own Quidditch team. How many is th... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber TheMiro59 constructing and test-flying his custom built radio controlled USS Enterprise. It has light effects and everything. Unfortunately, it's not the best flyer, but hey -- neither am I. PILOT: Attention all passengers, this is your captain sp... / Continue →

    This is the $47 R/C TARDIS helicopter that's being released in July. You should buy one, that way you can fly it around the living room while you're watching Dr. Who for a truly INTERACTIVE experience. Or chase your cat around with it. I don't f***ing know, you people weird... / Continue →

    This is a video of some guy flying a giant R/C plane when it clips a little helicopter, loses a wing, and crashes into a hundred billion pieces (approximately). I was really hoping the plane operator was going to pick a fist fight with the copter pilot afterwards, but no such ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy flying an R/C plane choreographed to classical music. It's really impressive but no screencap is going to do it justice, so you're just going to have to trust me and watch it. Or not -- I mean since when did trust ever become an important part of a fu... / Continue →

    Did you get that title? Hannibal used to always say that in the show, that's why it's relevant. A rarity for me, I know. This is the radio controlled A-Team van built by LEGO pro Vimal Patel. Not only does it look good, but it drives really well too. "The whole package" we... / Continue →

    I know these inflatable R/C sharks have been out for awhile, but this is a $40 zombie version. And zombies, as I'm sure you're well aware, are like sooooo in right now. Truthfully, I'm getting tired of them and have been brainstorming the next big genre of crapola. I think i... / Continue →

    NOTE: Video contains lots of very strong language and should only be watched at full volume with a middle finger pointed at the entrance to your cubicle the entire time it's playing. This is a video of a helicopter flight instructor and student flying around when they spot an ... / Continue →

    I know the screencap looks fake as shit, but that's only because it was shot on some Cold War era Russian video camera -- the flying DeLorean is actually real. Basically some clever Ruskies made an R/C quadrocopter and added a foam DeLorean body and some light effects and PRES... / Continue →

    This is an R/C Ornithopter. It's a radio controlled flying bird. It flaps its wings and flies and you can control it. Models start around $230 and go all the way into the $700's. But that doesn't include the radio controller. So basically it's a rich man's toy. Me? I'll ... / Continue →

    This is Traxxas' new 1/7-scale electric XO-1, the first ready-to-run (no assembly required) R/C car capable of doing a real (not scale) 100MPH fresh out of the box. But you're gonna need an actual raceway to drive the thing, because a Wal-Mart parking lot isn't gonna cut it at... / Continue →

    This is an Imperial Walker R/C car made out of an Axial model and the top of an AT-AT toy by Christopher Aleria. Just imagine: what if AT-ATs had wheels instead of legs and Luke never tripped that one on Hoth and wound up perishing on the frozen planet? I dunno, but if you th... / Continue →

    You just have to watch it to appreciate it, but this is a video of an F-16 R/C plane with a little video camera mounted where the pilot's head would be that's flown by a person on the ground wearing a video helmet who can also move the camera around because the helmet has a gyr... / Continue →

    Jawas: hands down the best characters in the Star Wars universe. "But what about the Bothans?" The Bothans?! They're only good at dying! Anyway, the Jawas: they're small enough to fit into cupboards, have glowing eyes, and are all-around shifty as gypsies. Is gypsies a de... / Continue →

    This is an R/C plane that looks like a superhero so you can provide false hope in an emergency situation. THERE -- IN THE SKY -- THAT SUPERHERO WILL SAVE US! *crashes into powerlines, bursts into flames* CAPTAIN PLANET NOOOOOOOO!! Flight characteristics: Great! This is due... / Continue →
