Ever dreamed of flying a fighter jet or a helicopter, or piloting an aircraft carrier or a speedboat, or racing an F1 car or superbike? Many of us have had such dreams, but few ever really get a chance in their lifetime to live them out.
There are many reasons behind it; money might be tight, you might have pursued an entirely different and “safer” career path, or you simply aren’t suited to the task. Whatever it is, sometimes we wish we could actually be there and do it, even if just for a day.
But what if you could actually do that? Well, maybe not in a very literal sense and a bit scaled down, but radio controlled toys allow you to actually “drive” a race car, “fly” a plane, or “pilot” a ship or boat. It might not put you right in the seat of one of these vehicles, but it can sure as hell put all the control in your hands!
This is the appeal of radio controlled toys – an actual sense of control over a toy so real that it can affect what it is doing entirely. You can fly a plane the way the pros do it in air shows, making a plane dip and dive, spin and roll, yaw and turn in the same way a real plane would – without having to worry that you might die if you ever crash your plane. You can race a car as fast and aggressive as you want, even making it leap of dirt mounds, without worrying about finding yourself in a deadly head on collision. It’s all a way to enjoy your passion for whatever kind of vehicle you prefer in a very realistic but safe way.
But radio controlled toys go even beyond the realm of these “ordinary” vehicles. If you have a fascination for tanks, you don’t need to join the army and do all the rigorous training you’d have to go through to get to drive one; you can simply buy and build a radio controlled tank! In fact, there are even radio controlled tanks that can shoot safe miniature projectiles, and some radio controlled enthusiasts from clubs that hold events like miniature radio controlled war games!
Some radio controlled toys even do away with vehicles all together. If building your own version of the Terminator is your kind of thing, then there’s an ever growing community of robotics enthusiasts who experiment with radio controlled robots! The annual World Robot Olympiad is just one of the proving grounds for robotics enthusiasts.
The dream of getting to fly a plane, drive a racing car, pilot a boat, control a tank, or command a robot is nothing but a fantasy for many, but if you step outside of the box a little and allow yourself to imagine, you’ll find that it doesn’t have to remain a fantasy forever. The simple act of picking up a radio controlled toy that matches whatever it is your fantasy may be based on is all it takes to actually get to live it out!
