This is a beautifully detailed galleon complete with full rigging, skull and crossbone bedecked sails, gunnels bristling with canons, and even a “firing” canon in the prow, is if not quite The Black Pearl, at least the coolest and most original RC boat to hit the pond this century. The paintwork is wonderfully detailed and it all looks very rough and rustic, which belies it’s rather zippy turn of speed.

The Remote Controlled Pirate Ship is powered by twin props, there’s a button on the remote that makes the canon rise, emit a sort of banging noise and glow red – it doesn’t actually fire anything as that would probably choke fish and alarm any ducks in the area. At 41cm long it’s a mighty ship, with rigging, sails, gunnels, the whole malarkey – a wonderfully regressive step forward (if that’s at all possible) in RC fun.

The price of the Remote Controlled Pirate Ship is about $72.

You hear some suspicious noise in the middle of the night while working in front of your PC and what do you do? Just turn on your Spy Video Car, adjust the camera angle, turn on the night vision, put on the Heads Up Display (HUD) visor, and drive your way to the suspicious noise. That’s right – this quiet R/C car has a video camera mounted on the front. It broadcasts to the black and white LCD HUD which plugs into the remote. You’ll see everything your Spy Car sees (in bright light or in total darkness). And since it rides really low to the ground, you’ll be able to go under tables, chair, pets, and anything else that gets in your way…
