Hammacher Schlemmer has introduced possibly the coolest RC “toy” of all time: A remote-controlled, fire-breathing dragon. I put “toy” in quotations because of the obvious safety risk and the exorbitant price: This bad boy will set you back 60 grand.

But it’d be money well-spent. The dragon can fly up to 70 mph and belch a 3’ propane-powered flame (but only on the ground, sadly). A turbine engine provides thrust that exits the rear at 500 mph and uses 1/2 gallon of jet aircraft fuel or kerosene for 10 minute flights.
