When you get a flash of inspiration, you want to flesh it out as fast as possible so you can begin to sculpt it into a fully finished idea. Depending on the project, this also means making a prototype. If you don’t like scrawling out ideas in 2D, then you’ve likely gone digital to work in a program that will allow you to see a 3D version of whatever you’re working on.

Control your very own Black Hawk helicopter remotely

rc-blackhawkRemote controlled toys can be fun to play, but more often than not, they tend to offer diminishing returns when it comes to the power consumption.
