Check Out This Incredible LEGO RC 1970 Porsche 917K Build By Sariel

Sariel, the person known for whipping incredibly detailed remote control custom LEGO vehicles is back and this time, he made a LEGO RC 1970 Porsche 917K and believe me, this creation easily blast original offerings from LEGO out of water for accuracy. I mean, LEGO Technic set like the Bugatti Chiron accurately recreated the form, but the Technic pieces just made them look a little too ’technical’. Too many crevices and openings here and there.

LEGO App-controlled Batmobile Is Now Available, But It Is Not For Everyone

If you are NOT a huge fan of Batman, but adore his rides, then this adorable LEGO 76112 App-controlled Batmobile may appeal to you. I am not totally sold, though because, it is a tad too cute for my liking. I mean, the look is OK, but TBH, I can’t look at it without conjuring the image of Ryu Nakanishi’s armored amphibious tank, the G-5 Mecha, from the iconic Gatchaman anime. It has the same chubby form, but instead of tracks, this cute Batmobile had fat wheels. Continue reading LEGO App-controlled Batmobile Is Now Available, But It Is Not For Everyone

Custom LEGO R/C Ford Mustang GT 350-H Is LEGO R/C Done Right

I am sure you can easily pickup a R/C car with a classic 1965 Ford Mustang GT 350-H shell to satisfy your love for Mustang, but why would anyone made one (R/C car) out of LEGO and LEGO Technic parts? I know why. Because, the person that has magic touch when it comes to LEGO Technic can and the reasons for doing so becomes even more apparent when the resulting LEGO R/C car looks ridiculously detailed like this Custom LEGO R/C Ford Mustang GT 350-H. It is so detailed that, at a glance, you may even mistaken it for an actual scale model. Ladies and gentlemen, that is how good this R/C car of the 1965 muscle car is and I am not even exaggerating one bit. Continue reading Custom LEGO R/C Ford Mustang GT 350-H Is LEGO R/C Done Right

Nissan Created A R/C GT-R Controlled Via A DualShock4 Controller

Keen eye readers will probably notice something peculiar about the Nissan GT-R featured here. Take a closer look and you will realize that it had opaque red windows. Weird, isn’t it? Even it has a clear as day windshield, opaque windows do not make it a safe car to drive, much less driving it at speeds on the track. Well, the thing is, this Nissan GT-R is not any ordinary GT-R; it is a fully remote control Nissan GT-R, cleverly called Nissan GT-R /C. R/C. Get it, get it?

Justice League RC Batmobile Spews Real Exhaust, Offers FPV Driving

What you see here is a RC Batmobile from toy maker Mattel. So what’s with this RC toy that gets us so stoked? Well, first and foremost, it is an exact replica of the Batmobile that will appear in the upcoming DC Comics’ Justice League movie. As you can see, Bruce’s crimefighting automobile gets some serious boost in firepower with an over the top look for good measure. Hey, we are not complaining cos’ it’s Batfleck. But being a replica of the movie’s car is just half of the story. The other half being, it has a real exhaust that, you know, spews out white smoke (harmless smoke, Mattel assures) and a dashcam of sort so you can drive this badass ride with your smartphone as what Batman would sees.

Watch The Beauty And Destruction Of A 100 MPH RC Car In Slow Motion

Adrenalin junkies love the thrill that speed brings and the easiest way to get the speed fix is via cars. But if you don’t mind, a really, really fast RC car could give the same level of speed satisfaction. Ok, maybe not all RC cars can, but you surely can get your blood pumping with TRAXXAS XO-1 4WD electric RC car, a big boy toy we featured years ago that’s well capable 100 mph or more. However, while XO-1 maybe a scale car, it could be as dangerous a real car. Don’t believe? Just check out The Slow Mo Guys’ latest slow-mo video: 100MPH RC Car in Slow-mo.

It’s a Tank. It’s a Quadcopter. No, it is a Radio Control Flying Tank!

RC cars have its limitation. It can’t get over obstacles, but B Remote Control Flying Car solves that quite easily with massive wheels and if the object is too much even for big wheels, it can always fly over them. But what if the terrain is too brutal and you would still like to traverse over it anyway? Well, for that, there’s the B-Unstoppable, the world’s first Tank Quadcopter Hybrid Drone. It shares the same concept as the company’s first RC flying car and that is the ability to transform into a vertical take-off quadcopter at the flick of a switch found on the included 2.4GHz transmitter. However, the similarly pretty much ends there because B-Unstoppable, as its name suggest, is kind of unstoppable as a land-going vehicle – thanks to the adjustable tracks.

Arduino-powered LEGO Technic RC Car

the Arduino-powered LEGO Technic RC Car is where your love for LEGO and RC cars come together, but in a way that will get you a little more involved then just opening the box and assembling the various bricks and technic parts together. drawing its inspiration from another fellow contributor ‘sath02’, this dragster-like vehicle combines two sets of LEGO Technic sets, Dune Duster (#8207) and Power Pack (#8720), and has a Arduino UNO R3 as its ‘brain’, while a XBee wireless control undertakes the remote control duty. so, no. this is not something you can buy off the rack; it is an instructables project by contributor ‘nfrith’ that goes beyond your usual Technic RC knowledge and dive into the wonderful world of Arduino and stuff to get it going.

The James Bond Remote Controlled Stunt Car

everyone knows the obligatory car stunts in James Bond movies are make believe, but that doesn’t stop fans from admiring and fantasized about those stunts. seriously, don’t do that. those stunts are, well, stunts and should be limited to your fantasy. you certainly don’t want to ruin your lovely Aston Martin DBS V12 and not to mention endangering your life and others in process, but not if those stunts are performed over a miniature, like this James Bond Remote Controlled Stunt Car. The James Bond Remote Controlled Stunt Car goes beyond the regular directional control (forward, backward, left and right turns), allowing you to lift the right front and rear wheels off the ground for evading obstacles or get through narrow alleys (no magic here, it is achieved by a small wheel that extends under the car at a push of a button), as well as popping wheelies or shooting off a ramp.

B Remote Control Flying Car

let’s be honest: we are pretty excited about flying cars, but even with the progress we are seeing, it would be hard pressed for us to see one zipping around in any time soon. the best bet of a flying car experience for now would be the B Remote Control Flying Car. this futuristically-shaped car features enormous wheels (enormous by its body proportion, btw) that allows it to transverse unforgiving terrains and achieves high speeds on flats, and when it hits an impossible obstacle, just take to the sky in its helicopter mode and be on your way again. the B is equipped with four brushless motors that powers four individual propellers located in the confine of each of its 220 mm near-indestructible wheels, plus 2 extra motors are also included in the rear to drive this remote control toy when in its car mode. so, in essence, it is really a remote controlled hybrid car-helicopter that satisfy all grown ups’ fantasy of a flying car. and being a helicopter, it takes off and land vertically without the need for runways, and it is totally capable of transitioning between the two modes as and when you desire.
