I just picked up a DJI Phantom 2.

Amazing. The wholedamn thing runs on Wifi and has an wifi extender to work. I have the camera working on it transmitting to my iphone... Very easy and stable to fly. In zero to low winds... I can put that thing anywhere I want. Love it. The price is a litlte steep, but I love the interphace and ability to make videos.

That dynamic soaring is interesting!
There are some models breaking 400 mph.

who sells a good remote controlled RTR bull dozer sub $ 250 price range.

I cant seem to find anything decent at any price. Might go with a tank, or rock crawler truck, looking for something that has some real torque for good climbing action and needs to survive dirt. Its for a 8 yr old, who has out grown little kid RC stuff.

thanks

Rock crawler would fit the bill imo. Maybe look for a used one on ebay?
