Here's an example of that old adage about men and boys and the cost of their toys.

A buddy just sent me a few clips showing amazing RC model
jets, an F-14 and a B-52. Enjoy. These are amazing as hell.



And here's something even cooler, called a Cybird. Enjoy.

I always wanted a big-ass RC tank with working main-gun. Cooler yet would be one with a working machine-gun like those miniatures made by Tippmann and Lakeside Machine, working belt-fed copies of a Browning .50 that fires .22LR.

Wow. No shit. Wow.

Met a guy at a gun show in Dallas a few years back who had built an RC 1/2 scale Stug 3, the version with the 105mm howitzer. He had it parked outside the show. Totally cool. All the tracks were machined out of aluminum. Very accurate to detail, all hand made. Blew me away.

Jeez. A scaled B-52 remote control! Incredible.

Damn. They're actually jet powered! Insane. I wonder what those costs. I've never heard of a jet-powered R/C plane.

Blows my mind too. Looked up a jet powered RC Me-262, and it costs about 2 grand, imported from Germany.
