The real Spirit of St. Louis that Charles Lindbergh used to scoot across the Atlantic in 1927 may be hanging in the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC, but that's no reason not to covet the 80th anniversary (yeah, they're on the ball here) radio-controlled model from Toys "R" Us-Japan.

Admittedly, it's more than a little nerdy to still hanker after RC planes, but you can't go far wrong for just ¥6,999 (US$59) and a pack of eight AAs for the controller. Oh, and if you're thinking of emulating Lindbergh's epic 33-hour flight, forget it two hours of charging yields just two minutes of flight time.
