Man, if you can fly one of these high enough so that you can't tell it's not a real person, I bet you can get some seriously awesome "Look! Up in the sky!" moments from unsuspecting observers.

I dunno, they seem rather easily defeated.

Upon seeing this I had two reactions - my first and strongest was that the RC Superhero would be great fun just because it would play with people's minds and I must have one. The second reaction was deal lord, why do all these types of videos have the shittiest background music.

To the latter point, I then watched a video with its original sound and no music, and realized that in person the RC Superhero will sound like the source of his jet propulsion is the gigantic lunch at Chipotle that didn't agree with him. I then went back to the clips with music.

My fantasy, which will not be realized, is to purchase about a hundred of them, and let them fly at the exact moment of the supposed Rapture on Saturday in the downtown area where I live. Straight up.

Bonus fantasy: Hack into the Tornado Response System loudspeakers and soundtrack it with that butt rock.
