Someone Turned LEGO Aquanauts Submarines Into Real Submarines

LEGO can make almost anything, including aircraft and boats, but you know how is it with LEGO aircrafts and boats. They may have the form, but they won’t fly or actually sail, let alone submerge in the case of submarines. Or so we thought. As it turns out, one of our favorite YouTube tinkerer Peter Sripol managed to make a flying LEGO aircraft a few years back.

This Giant Flying LEGO Helicopter Is Actually A Functional Drone

Remember Adam Woodworth? The dude who made the Giant LEGO Plane that flies and also the insanely awesome NERF ball-shooting RC A-10? Well, he is back, this time with another giant flying LEGO: a scaled up LEGO helicopter from the LEGO 6396 International Jetport set from 1990. This thing is not the puny LEGO helicopter and yes, it indeed flies. And when it does, it looks like the unimaginable just happened.

Someone Made A Drivable LEGO Technic Model Of Ken Block’s Hoonicorn

No. What you see here is NOT Ken Block’s 1,400 HP 1965 Ford Mustang Hoonicorn RTR famously seen smoking out and making donuts on Pikes Peak two years ago. At least it isn’t the actual car. What you see here is a replica of the legendary car that, saved for a few chrome bits, is made entirely out of LEGO Technic elements. Absolutely bonkers.

Here’s A Consumer-grade Mind-controlled Drone Money Can Buy

I am not sure how to begin, but here goes… This is UDrone, a so-called “mind-controlled” FPV drone, that lets you pilot a drone hands-free and has built-in gesture recognition. It has an onboard HD camera that takes photos by blinking of eyes (not quite the best idea for obvious reason, IMHO), or flashing the “V” hand gesture, and it also does real-time video transmission. Continue reading Here’s A Consumer-grade Mind-controlled Drone Money Can Buy

DIY Wooden Modular Drone Might Just Be What Fun Drone Should Be

When multi-rotor drones come onto the market, the word “ready-to-fly” is almost non-existence because, unlike RC toys and RC scale models in the past, most quadcopters or multicopters come ready-to-fly (or at least, bind-and-fly). Well, that’s until Aerowood comes along. Aerowood defies the drone norm. It is not ready-to-fly out-of-the-box. Not only it is a kit that requires you to roll up your sleeve and build it, it is, as hinted by its name, a wooden drone.

Man Used RC Construction Toys To Expand Basement By 30 Percent

Well, here’s something you don’t hear about everyday. YouTuber LilGiantsConstrCo AKA Joe is a RC hobbyist who have spent years excavating his basement with nothing but RC construction toys. The grain farmer who hails from southwest Saskatchewan, Canada, picked up the hobby in 1995 and have since acquire a large fleet of construction equipment models. But that’s not the point. The point is, the man actually expanded his basement by 30 percent, and in the process, removing around 30 cubic meter (1,059 CuFt) of dirt and doing it with his trusty RC excavator and truck.

This TRAXXAS RC Truck Was So Fast That It Can Drive On Water!

TRAXXAS is no stranger to having insanely fast RC, but this TRAXXAS X-MAXX 8S takes fast to a whole new level. It was so fast that it can travel on water like a speedboat. Now, that is freaking fast. You heard that right. This particular RC truck drives on water. I am not going to lie, I never knew it could be done, like ever. But the truth is, someone has done it at the boat pond in Sunset Park in Las Vegas and with a TRAXXAS X-MAXX 8S supplied by PM Hobbycraft in an event, presumably, organized by National Retail Hobby Association. Continue reading This TRAXXAS RC Truck Was So Fast That It Can Drive On Water!

Basketball RC Drone Could Be The Golden Snitch Of The Real World

What you see here is the future of basketball and in case you haven’t already notice, this seemingly normal ‘basketball’ is also a drone. OK. We are just kidding when we say it is the future of basketball. It is NOT, but it could very well be. Imagine a game of basketball played like Quidditch in Harry Potter’s world, with this flying basketball, Zcadoo Folding Basketball RC Drone, as the Golden Snitch. Ermmm. What about the flying broomsticks? Well, TBH, we haven’t thought about that yet. Baby step, my friend, baby step. For now, players will have jump to grab this basketball snitch. OK. I am kidding again. You don’t do that. You just fly this thing like any other toy drones. Continue reading Basketball RC Drone Could Be The Golden Snitch Of The Real World

Blade Inductrix Switch Is A RC Drone And Hovercraft Rolled Into One

Horizon Hobby has joined the elite group of ‘hybrid’ remote control toys with the new Blade Inductrix Switch. Now., you may ask: what is hybrid and how is it elite? Elite because, it is far and few between, and hybrid offers two modes, usually involving a flying drone mode and a land or sea mode. There are really not many such ‘hybrid’. Off the cuff, we can think are Parrot Minidrone Hydrofoil, the ceiling crawling Parrot Minidrone and the couple of from B.

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.
