If you want to skip the build up to the aerial crash, fast forward to about the 1:15 mark on the video to see an 80-inch RC plane with 50cc gas engine hit a RC helicopter and then immediately nosedive to its destruction. The plane clips one of its wings when it hits the chopper and immediately spirals down and slams…
This is not a screensaver. Nor is it what happens if something goes wrong at the LHC, or the result of too much LSD. In fact, it's what happens if you have an over-active imagination and go out light paining with a remote control helicopter.
Costing a damn sight less than the $300 Parrot AR Drone, Griffin's Helo TC helicopter can be flown by an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch using a free compatible app.
All we know is, he's called The Stig. And that now we can race through the air with an RC mini-helicopter styled after the mysterious Top Gear cast member's iconic helmet.
Police patrols, three Charleston Fire Department trucks, and a battalion chief rushed to the Wando River where a helicopter had plunged into the water. A two-foot toy helicopter. That's what? Over ten times smaller than the real thing? Confusion understandable.
According to the source, crops in Japan are tiny and scattered throughout residential areas. Dusting the crops by plane, therefore, is impossible. Farmers normally tend the crops with pump activated backpack sprayers, but where's the fun in that? Kudos to this guy for figuring out a way to both spray the field and fly…
As if there weren't enough USB distractions out there already, Brando is now offering a mini RC helicopter than can be refueled from your laptop or desktop.
This RC helicopter is a scale model of a Russian Mi-24 chopper, a monstrous beast that's 55 feet long. The scale version looks about 1/8th the size, and still scares the crap out of us. Check out the video below.
Attention manufacturers: don't even think about flying, R/C Terminator helicopter heads. Bladez has already cornered the market for this hot item.
Guards at Elmley Prison in the UK recently spotted a R/C helicopter fly over the jailhouse walls towards the prisoner's quarters with a small cargo attached underneath the fuselage.
In daylight, we'll admit, the Roboppi looks a bit odd. But at night, this R/C helicopter appears as nothing more than a floating orb. It's a simple design. A few LEDs sit on the blades' turbine so that they naturally spin when the copter is in flight. Cruising for 6 minutes at a time per 25 minute charge, the Roboppi…
I don't know what's more terrifying about the new Rave 450-class electric helicopter—which the experts say is the fastest electric RC helicopter in the world: the fact that it buzzes like an angry giganormous killer wasp who just got three speeding tickets driving a Ferrari on a coke overdose, or the fact that it…
We're still working on our piloting technique, but even with the special aluminum weights attached to the nose, the little bugger just doesn't want to go forward. Hovering is its specialty, as you can plainly see. That, and crashing. A lot. The horror!
