The X-Plane, isn't your average radio controlled plane. While most r/c planes are content to waft around under their own steam, performing the odd loop-the-loop and then crashing into a tree, the X-Plane has a whole bag of extra features under its, ahem, wing.
For a kick off, there's a built-in digital camera, allowing you to take aerial photos of your garden in order to plan where to plant your herbaceous borders. But that's only one of the X-Planes myriad selling points. How about the ability to drop a paratrooper, complete with opening parachute from its underbelly doors? Sound good? We bet it does but that's still not your lot. Once you've taken your aerial photos and parachuted a man onto the roof of the shed, you can then commence your bombing run, unleashing the devastating plastic missile payload onto the target area.
Sporting 4-channel digital proportional control, the X-Plane is a breeze to fly smoothly and there's very little in the way of aerobatics it can't do. Should you tire of dropping things on the neighbours and buzzing the tower' (next door's bedroom), you can set to work on building a runway in your back garden, since the X-Plane can also take off from the ground. Chocks away!
