We've all fantasised about flying a blink-and-you'll-miss-it Blackbird-style reconnaissance aircraft. But unless you're a highly-trained strategic ops pilot (and if you are, stop reading this and start saving the world) that's not going to happen. So why not console yourself with the frankly frightening X-Twin Thunderjet.
Ultimate ducted fan engine
This ominous R/C flying machine looks meaner than a cybernetic vulture hearse (whatever that is) and it boasts twin duct-fan engines for serious kick-in-the-tailfin power. You can even vary its speed as it stalks the sky searching for enemy encampments. Or naughty duckie wucks and squirrels. Whatever. Once you get to grips with the controls you'll be soaring through thin air and pulling off mind-blowing twists and turns.
Full function digital proportional radio control
Like its real life USAF counterpart, the sinister Thunderjet looks almost unreal. In fact it reminds us of Firefox, that lethally sophisticated jet from the dodgy Clint Eastwood film of the same name. Unlike Firefox, however, the X-Twin can't be controlled via thought impulses; you control the action with a twin-toggle, digital proportional transmitter that doubles up as a charging unit for its built-in lithium polymer battery. (20-30 minutes should give flight times of around 5 minutes).
Three colours available...
L-R: Red (Channel A), Yellow (Channel B) and Blue (Channel C)
Obviously a plane this powerful is unsuitable for indoor use, so we recommend you conduct your hush-hush missions in the park. You needn't worry about crashing your Thunderjet as it's made from light but extremely durable polyfoam. Just watch out for enemy Chihuahuas.
Quite a handful
This really is one highly impressive aircraft and it's guaranteed to tweak your interest in high-speed stealth operations. In fact we've taken to flying our Thunderjet dressed in a pressurized flight suit, helmet and oxygen mask. Okay, an old boiler suit and a colander. Enough already - buckle up and get ordering!
