Over at Technabob this week there is an article on RC enthusiasts bringing the Helicarrier to life in a fully working RC model that makes the SDCC Helicarrier toy look like an over priced ironing board. Check out the video below of one of the RC Helicarriers in action, then read the Technabob article for more information and videos of RC planes even being launched off the Helicarrier in flight!
