For some people, playing with R/C cars harkens back to the days of our childhood when the only thing we cared about was not running out of batteries for our beloved radio-controlled machines.
But for other people, R/C cars are used in far more enterprising - and awesome - ways. Take Need for Speed, for example. To create some hype surrounding the release of the new NFS game, Most Wanted, Electronic Arts decided to have a car chase recreated...using R/C cars.
The result? A rollicking two-and-a-half-minute video of awesomeness.
Featuring a Nissan GT-R, a Ford Mustang, a Porsche 911, and a band of Chevrolet Corvette police cars, the R/C car chase scene is straight out of any car movie. The video was amazingly executed by the people of RocketJump, complete with stunts, sound effects, and even a police helicopter.
Check out the video and see for yourself how a Mustang was able to jump over a helicopter. If it sounds too good to be true, it’s because it is.
