The X-Twin Thunderjet is a powerful radio controlled flying machine, equipped with a pair of duct-fan engines for some extra high-speed enjoyment.
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).
The X-Twin Thunderjet is available in three different colors (Blue, Red and Yellow) for £24.95 (about $50 USD9 from Firebox.
