Controlling an RC helicopter isn't the easiest thing, not in the way that controlling an RC car is anyway. Imagine taking that already difficult to control toy helicopter and making it huge, operational and deadly: crazy, right? Well, the military has done just that and turned a 5.2-ton Blackhawk into its latest toy.

Armed with just a remote control and a backpack, one military unit controls the 5 ton behemoth, carrying even more weight in the form of a block of concrete. Knowing the military, though, this isn't some sort of new toy to be sold to the average Joe. This RC helicopter is being designed to be the latest military innovation, for real world conflicts.
