Remote Control Bomb System Tests Your Powers of Restraint

If simply flying your RC plane isn't quite giving you the thrill it used to, it could be time to upgrade your firepower. The plug and play Quanum bomb system might be just the bad idea you were looking for.

Looking disturbingly realistic and being dangerously easy to install, the Quanum RC bomb system could spell trouble if found in the hands of the wrong remote control pilots.

Though RC bombs aren't exactly a new idea, Quanum's $17 kit seems simple and effective. The system sticks onto the underside of any RC aircraft, size .25 or larger, and can be triggered by an extra servo channel in your receiver. The bomb itself is made of a durable nylon. You can fill it with any payload your fiendish heart desires. Packing it with chalk powder results in a nice plume of smoke; filling it with strawberry jam results in hilarity of some sort.


The system includes an extra release plate so you can design and drop your own custom armaments: a bouquet of flowers for an unsuspecting loved one or maybe some fertilizer over your pumpkin patch. JUST KIDDING. Load that sucker up with a water balloon and then it's bombs away. [Nerd Approved]
