Giant R/C Concorde

Giant R/C Concorde

The supersonic Concorde jet planes have been retired, so the only way to witness the majesty of this marvel in flight is through replica models. RCScaleAirplanes shares footage of Otto Widlroither’s incredible 1/6-scale version of the jet. It measures 33 feet long, has a 13 foot wingspan, and is powered by four JetCat P300 Pro turbines.

R/C Flying Man

R/C Flying Man

We’ve seen some pretty wild remote-controlled flying machines over the years, but this might just be our favorite so far. In this clip from RC Media World, flyer Graner Berg shows off his custom-built drone that looks like a full-size human wearing a jetpack. It’s impressively agile and stable in flight, given its awkward shape.

Micro VW Micro Buses

Micro VW Micro Buses

R/C enthusiasts monsterchannel24 got their hands on a diminutive 1/87-scale model of a classic Volkswagen T1 microbus from Carson Modelsport. It looks really adorable tooling around a tiny town, and then racing a few of its brethren. The model is available with or without windows, and in a version that pulls a trailer.

Driving on the Ceiling

Driving on the Ceiling

Maker Ivan Miranda’s decided to see if he could modify a remote-controlled car so it can drive upside-down on the ceiling. He added a pair of powerful fans to create downforce (or is it upforce?) It took some trial and error, but he ultimately got it to work. Of course, he could have just bought one of these.

Giant R/C A-10 Warthog

Giant R/C A-10 Warthog

We’ve seen some pretty damned impressive remote-controlled planes over the years, but this Mibo A-10 Thunderbolt II might be the best yet. The insanely detailed model has real jet engines, and even makes machine gun sounds and fires flares.

World’s Fastest FPV

World’s Fastest FPV

YouTuber Omegoolibird shows off what is said to be the fastest first-person view RC plane. The customized Vasamodel Fusion can hit speeds up to 265 mph thanks to its 2650 KV electric motor, which can spin at speeds up to 35,000 RPM. It sounds like an angry swarm of bees.

Giant R/C Tank

Giant R/C Tank

RCSparks Studio shows off an epic build – a 1/6th scale, all-metal remote-controlled tank from Armortek. The Ferdinand Elefant weighs in at 240 pounds, has dual 24-volt motors, working tracks and realistic sound effects. In total, this monster cost about $6500.

Flying 9 R/C Planes at Once

Flying 9 R/C Planes at Once

R/C flyer Ran D. St. Clair was wondering what might happen if you attached multiple remote-controlled airplanes together at the wings and attempted to fly them at once. This crazy build features nine conjoined planes which miraculously manage to take flight.

R/C Podracers

R/C Podracers

The Phantom Menace was arguably the worst Star Wars film, but it did give us some memorable vehicles with its podracers. A group of R/C enthusiasts built their own custom podracers and buzzed them around in an exhibition, captured here by RC Media World.
