As far as remote-controlled toys go, Airsoft's Snow Leopard Battle Tank is the toughest you'll find, rugged enough to withstand a rumble through the dirty cobble-stone streets outside Gawker HQ. The battery-operated tank is about 2-feet long and a breeze to maneuver. It can be loaded up with pellets or made to emit smoke (though we had trouble getting the smoke feature to work right). The tank goes for $68 and I was surprised at how far your $68 takes you, this tank can take a beating. HobbyTron also has a Helicopter, which as you'll see in the post-jump video, didn't hold up as well.
After a few crashes, the chopper was out for the count. Though to be fair, it worked flawlessly at CES.
