For those of us who never want to grow up there is the category of Big Boys Toys. What normally differentiates a toy from a Big Boy Toy is the price! Flying a toy drone is all well and good but what if you want to get out into the countryside and climb as high as the machine will go without worrying about upsetting the neighbours! Yes you can have a hand held controller for Forza but what about buckling up and sitting behind the wheel with multiple screens in your own simulator and burying you right foot to the floor!
Drones for instance are a really popular toy for adults and children alike .They are the next generation of rc Helicopters and Aeroplanes but with some serious applications and serious price tags. Lots of them can be calibrated for performance enhancements, most of them have really good cameras.
There are literally hundreds to choose from but Holy Stone HS200 FPV RC Drone choice for a popular low price model. First of all perhaps one of the best things that can be said about this company is that they have excellent customer service, so that is a good start. It has first person view which means you can use it to take videos and photos from your phone. To help this the drone has a hover feature so it stays stable in the air – no more wobbly videos! There is a smart phone app that means you can control the whole thing from your phone, although there are proper controls that come with this drone, along with the camera. It can do aerial stunts too, like 360 degree loops.
Racing Car Simulator
Another cool thing for grown up boys is a Race Car Simulator. It’s a great addition to the games room, especially designed to offer an immersive experience. It’s compatible with XBOX, PS4 and all the latest game consoles. Clearly it is used with racing games! They are adjustable so everyone can sit in the perfect way and there are pedals at the bottom like a real racing car. Thrustmaster is a brand that makes steering wheels, and these can be added to the simulator , the controls then fit onto the wheels, and these are specific to the games console that is being used. The steering wheels vibrate and shake so they are like you are really driving round a race track. Different games have different accessories, so it’s important to make sure the games and the pedals are compatible.
There is a vast array of high-end remote control toys from rc Aeroplanes, rc Cars & rc Helicopters. It’s just a question of how deep you pocket is. One of the more interesting but expensive is the 50mph+ Traxxas 8S X-Maxx 4WD Brushless Electric Monster RTR Truck. It really is a bit of an animal!!!
