This 3D-Printed Working Model Of A 787's Jet Engine Has Impressive Thrust

Given the challenges with precision, building functional machines with a household 3D printer isn’t easy. And that’s why it’s all the more impressive that someone on the RC Groups forum has used a 3D printer to make a fully functional scale model of a Boeing 787’s GE-built turbofan jet engine.


Lazy Treasure Hunters Will Love This Remote Control Metal Detector

The only thing better than getting rich by finding treasure is not having to put much effort into your windfall. So why waste an afternoon walking along a beach with a metal detector in hand when you could instead lounge on a blanket and drive this one around with a remote control?


Tilting Wings Let This New Air Hogs RC Plane Hover Like A Helicopter

Borrowing a neat trick from the Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey, Spin Master has created a new RC plane that’s able to take off and land vertically at the push of a button. The Air Hogs Fury Jump Jet’s wings and rotors both rotate to point up, essentially turning the plane into a helicopter that can hover in mid-air.


The Self-Balancing Zoomer Dino Gets A Jurassic World Facelift

There’s a good reason Spin Master’s Zoomer Dino took home ‘Toy of the Year’ honours for 2014.

And now that Jurassic World is dominating the box office, it’s only fitting for Zoomer Dino to get a fitting upgrade.


Anki's Officially Killed Slot Cars With Overdrive's Customisable Tracks

Anki delivered a devastating blow to slot cars with its original Drive set, giving tiny RC cars a brain so they could stay on a track without the need for a peg underneath. But with Overdrive slot cars are officially dead now that your track can be any shape you want, complete with U-turns, intersections and jumps.


All RC Toys Should Wirelessly Charge While Parked Like This Race Car

If you think just dropping your phone on a desk and having it start automatically charging is neat, imagine the day when electric cars can wirelessly charge by just driving down the road. The technology exists, it’s just better suited to RC cars right now, as Qualcomm demonstrates.


DJI Phantom 3 Review: Stunning Video + Easier Controls = Hell Yes

DJI’s Phantom 2 Vision+ really upped the ante for a consumer-friendly all-in-one aerial photography drone. It shot solid 1080p video, and its built-in stabilised camera kept the shot super smooth. Well, the Phantom 3 is here — and while it isn’t perfect, it blows the doors off the 2 Vision+. It’s a mighty sweet birdie.


It Takes Just 10 Seconds To Recharge This Incredibly Tiny RC R2-D2

In a remarkable feat of miniaturised engineering, Takara Tomy has created a tiny R2-D2 toy that stands just over an 2.5cm tall but can still be steered around your desk using an equally small lightsaber remote control.


How Did They Squeeze A Camera Into This Tiny RC Helicopter?

We’ve been flying tiny helicopters around our living rooms for years now, but Silverlit, the company who created the world’s smallest flying toy, has somehow found a way to squeeze a video camera into its miniature RC choppers now.
