"Though it doesn't go as fast as it says, the XQ Ford GT from Costco is still a respectable value in my book. For $30 US you get a solid, good-sized, great-looking RC car with a rechargable battery, and even the battery you need for the controller"

"I'm not so happy with the Air Hogs Hawk Eye. As an indoor helicopter, it's expensive and not incredibly impressive. What you really pay for is the camera feature, which is a nice idea, but doesn't work out so well in practice. "

"The Air Hogs Pocket Copter might not fit in your pocket, but it is one of the smallest RC helicopters you'll find on the market today, and probably the best-flying for its size. It's not as smooth & steady in the air as a larger craft like the Sharp Shooter, but it's definitely controllable enough to fly around even a small room without crashing. "

"The Air Hogs Helix 360 features an advanced design packed into a sleek, unassuming package, and the amount of control it allows is unprecedented for a toy-class heli. However, I do not think what it adds over a 3-channel heli is worth twice the cost... ...I am confident that I did not get the best value for my money."

"I thought this car ran really well, especially for the price, but I do have to dock its rating for the little bit of work I did up front. If it was set up just right out of the box, it'd be a perfect low-cost micro RC car. "

"As a replica of the popular in-game aircraft, this officially Microsoft-licensed RC Halo Hornet is a little bit cool, a little bit not. As an easy-to-use indoor helicopter, it's very good..."

"The Fast Lane Rumbler is a worthy RC toy and I believe it sets the bar for the performance and value that others should aspire to meet or exceed. Its top speed is not amazing, but considering that it's geared towards kids as young as 6, the performance is right in the appropriate range."

"At $50 USD, with a battery and charger included, the price would be ideal for this size of car, if it performed pretty nicely... The FT-001, though, is just too slow, too boring, too incapable to justify the cost, in my opinion."

"It's tough to design a small RC airplane that will really fly well. It's even tougher to design a stable, controllable RC helicopter. What Spinmaster has done with the Air Hogs Osprey Full Tilt, though, is create one single aircraft that works well as an airplane and as a helicopter, alternating at will between the two at the flick of a switch... Unquestionably one of the best RCs of 2010."

"The New Bright RC Dodge Ram 1/15th scale is not a bad truck for the price and target audience. The truck is respectably fast on 'street' conditions and is actually capable of going over real dirt & gravel."

"The Hot Wheels RC Stealth Rides Power Tread tank is an amazing invention. If it was just a plain micro-sized tank but still drove like it does, I'd be completely happy with it. This whole additional dimension of being able to completely compact itself and fold up for storage inside the already small & flat controller simply blows my mind."

"The Hot Wheels RC Stealth Rides Racing Car, in addition to being a mouthful to say, is one cool toy. It's a completely unique concept, but it makes sense, and it's very well executed... [I] give the Hot Wheels RC Stealth Rides Racing Car a solid 'A' rating for ingenuity & good old fashioned fun. "

"The Air Hogs Jackal looks great in the air or just displayed on a desk or shelf. Having a 3-channel flight control system in such a tiny heli is a relatively new & uncommon concept, but you do pay for the extra perk. I like the idea of being able to move forward only on command, but unfortunately in reality, the Jackal isn't easy to control with precision, and it takes a lot of concentration and fast finger work."
