Rocket-Powered Toy Car Flies into the Air with an Incredible Leap

Rocket-Powered Toy Car Flies into the Air with an Incredible Leap

What do you get when you take a six-and-a-half-pound toy car and equip it with a rocket capable of 120 pounds of thrust? The answer is you get the best kind of silliness the internet has to offer. But also a smashed up model car.

This video, which we came across at Sploid, is the latest from YouTuber David Windestal, who wanted to follow up his rocket RC car jump by answering that age old question: What can be done when your toy car outfitted with a rocket faces an obstacle but doesn’t have a ramp to help it get over it? Using a 1:10 scale HobbyKing Desert Fox RC car loaded his homemade rocket capable of 0.4 seconds of thrust, as well as some onboard cameras, he put that absurd hypothetical to a real world test.

Windestal previously shared a video on how he built the rocket. But please, don’t fool around with these projects unless you have the training and knowledge to make them safely. (Every toy car should come with a rocket, but with strict rules that you can only use it in a big open field away from civilization.)

But forget toy cars! When is this technology going to apply to real cars? Imagine how nice it would be when you find yourself stuck at a raised bridge, or when traffic is horrible, to simply hit your car’s rocket button and fly over the roadblock? Think of the time it would save.

(Minus the part where your car smashes apart on impact. They should probably figure that out first.)

What other tests should Windestal put his rocket car up against? Race into our comments with your best idea.
