SRS-RC shares footage of some amazing model trucks and construction equipment being driven and performing tasks during Modellbau Wels 2017, a festival which celebrates model vehicles and aircraft of all kinds. We’d love to see that Bucyrus crane being driven around in action.
This scale model of an EC-135 ADAC Notarzt Christoph 33 helicopter is so ridiculously huge that it might as well be the real thing. It weighs in at about 108 pounds, has an 11.5 foot rotor diameter, and gets its lift from a turbine engine. Skip to 3:45 to watch it take off.
One-man toy studio Michael Sng aka Machination Studios is ready to sell his first collectible. Like the Colossus prototype, the Mk. 1 Cyclops is a remote-controlled mobile fortress inspired by World War I technology. You can get it as a DIY kit or fully assembled.
Flybrix is an easy-to-assemble kit that uses LEGO bricks for its non-electronic parts. One kit contains enough parts to let you build a quadcopter, a hexacopter, or an octocopter. Of course, you can also modify it using the LEGO pieces that you already have.
LEGO master Sariel made this badass model of the Defender 90. It moves like a turtle even in fourth gear, but yeah, it has a fourth gear. It also has 4×4 drive, a working winch, locking differentials, and can be controlled from up to 160ft away thanks to the SBrick module.
For the price of a real Jeep beater, Capo will give you an extremely realistic Wrangler scale model. For instance, it has working disc brakes and multi-link suspension. Here’s the kicker: it doesn’t come with the electronic components needed to make it run.
One of the most awesome looking RC cars we’ve ever laid eyes on, Tamiya’s replica of the classic Land Cruiser features a fully-articulated suspension, 4WD, and fat tires. It’s a complex kit, and you’ll need to BYO controller, radios, speed controller and battery pack.
Dude Perfect show that they’re more than just trick shots, as they put a variety of awesome R/C cars and trucks from Traxxas to the test, including a tricky obstacle course, crazy roof jumps, and highlighted by an amazing hydroplaning run and a ridiculous long jump.
