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.

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.

Man Creates Working 3D Printed RC Motorcycle With Moving Rider

DIY stuff doesn’t necessary make things cheaper, but the process offers gratification that money can’t buy. Gratification like the ability to build your own radio controlled version of the 2016 Draxter Concept Drag Bike and maybe, even a 2016 Suzuki GSX-RR MotoGP. We already piqued your interest, didn’t we? No? Well, then perhaps the fact that the aforementioned scaled, RC versions each has a rider that moves will. A RC motorcycle is, of course, nothing new, and I am sure a 3D printed one isn’t either, but one that features an articulated rider with arms, head and torso that moves like a real person riding like Brett Turnage’s creations? And DIY? Now, that’s something worthy of any motorcycle enthusiast, tinkerer, or RC aficionado’s attention. Continue reading Man Creates Working 3D Printed RC Motorcycle With Moving Rider

Enormous 16-Foot Wingspan RC Airbus Is The Coolest Thing To Happen Indoor

If you ever tried your hands on any remote control aircraft, you will know picking up the skill isn’t easy. Most RC flyers, however slow they are, requires quick eye and hand coordination, and also a good sense of direction. Meaning, you should know in an instance the left and right of the aircraft regardless of its orientation with respect to you, the operator. So, for someone starting out, he or she can only watch in admiration as veterans haul big-ass RC aircrafts like the 4.95 meter (16.2 feet) Boeing 747-400 into the air. If only those giant flying toys are slower, eh? If only. Well, what do you know? As it turns out, there is. It ain’t a Boeing, though; it is an Airbus A320 and it is no less freaking huge, and best of all, it flies slow enough to be piloted indoors.

The A-10 Thunderbolt II AKA Warthog is every tank’s nightmare and being a pretty celebrated aircraft in the battlefield since the 70s, it is only natural it became one of the favorite model in the RC world. Speaking of A-10 RC model, while most people would be content with the toy as-is, you know, pulling brilliant low passes and enjoying the whirling sound the ducted fans made, YouTuber ajw61185, took it a step further with his old Freewing A-10 and put it under the knife to realize the RC world’s A-10 Warthog with “30mm Gatling gun.” Naturally, it is not a real 30mm rotary cannon, but close enough as far as toy is concerned.

If there’s one thing awesome about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it was the promised of less CGI like the original trilogy and less CGI they did, choosing to build life-size props and only uses computer-aided special effects only when necessary. One of the products of the ‘less CGI’ mantra is the lovable BB-8 droid, which was revealed last year that it was in fact a real working droid. Since then, at least two toys based on the BB-8 were introduced; one by Hasbro and the other from Sphero, which helped design the on-screen functional BB-8. Sphero and Hasbro may have stole the show with the cute tabletop version of BB-8, but soon, they will be topple by Spin Master’s near life-size BB-8 that stands over a cool 16 inches (40.6 cm) tall.
