Take the wheel of the RC monster truck

It may look tough, but the RC Hälix Vaterra is built to avoid a ruckus

Most ra­dio-con­trolled runarounds are so over-pow­ered they’re al­most im­pos­si­ble to keep on the straight and nar­row, a throt­tle blip too far see­ing them ca­reer off against a kerb. But not this four-wheel-drive, wa­ter­proof, sen­sor-laden, off-road beast. The bat­tery­fu­elled Hälix Vaterra is equipped with a unique sta­bil­ity con­trol sys­tem called Ac­tive Ve­hi­cle Con­trol, which keeps the car’s eyes on the road and clear of trou­ble, no mat­ter how reck­less your cor­ner­ing style. $550, modelflight.com.au
