Anyone bought an RC boat before? I don't need anything fancy, just something that the kids can drive around a little pond in our backyard. No idea what to look for. Do i need to spend some money to get a decent one or what?

Most of those RC's in the $25-$75 price range are made in China and are not going to hold up well to any kind of consistent abuse. However they are perfect for younger kids without breaking the bank. Every now and then you get a dud that will not work properly right out of the box.

My boys have those little small "air hogs" choppers... pretty fun, but hard as hell to control and batteries drain quickly.

We've looked into the big models for our business (aerial photography)... too much hassle for that methinks.

I have one that I got from Radio Shack, called a Gamma Ray. About 18" long, and it moves pretty fast. Didn't cost much.

Nobody tell Scrum, but I saw a remote-controlled Millenium Falcon on a show recently....



Hasbro’s remote-controlled flying Millennium Falcon is one of those items that, if you didn’t see the photo, you’d have to ask, “What do they mean, flying? As you can see, however, Hasbro designers had the inspired idea to replace the saucer-shaped hull of the Falcon with a propeller to make it fly, although at a speed a few points behind lightspeed. Here’s Hasbro’s catalog copy for the RC Falcon, which will retail for about $49.99 this fall:

Han Solo once bragged that the Millennium Falcon made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs…and now fans can give it their best shot with the all-new Star Wars R/C MILLENNIUM FALCON! For the first time ever, the MILLENNIUM FALCON — the most beloved and iconic Star Wars ship of all-time — is available as an indoor flying remote control vehicle. Measuring an impressive 11 inches long and 8 inches wide, the largest flying Star Wars R/C to date is highly detailed, easy to fly and includes a charging controller and vehicle battery for up to five minutes of flying time.

For $35 you can hardly beat it! But you may want something a little slower to enjoy more.
