Building huge remotely controlled planes in your garage is perhaps the poster child for ridiculous hobbies, but as with most insane pastimes, it’s very popular, massively addictive and incredibly fun.
This F86D Dog Sabre R/C kit has a 5’3″ wingspan (160cm), it has a flying weight of 14.5 lbs (~6.5kgs), it’s powered by a fully functioning jet turbine engine and has fully retractable landing gear.
The kit costs $499 USD with the engines sold separately, if you’ve been getting cabin fever waiting for the warmer weather to come around, this may be the very thing to keep you busy in the garage.
