Product Details



Product Description

The RQ-1 Predator is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) which the United States Air Force describes as a MALE (medium-altitude, long-endurance) UAV system. It can serve in a reconnaissance role and fire two AGM-114 Hellfire missiles. The aircraft, in use since 1995, has seen combat over Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bosnia, Serbia, Iraq, and Yemen. It is remote-controlled by humans so is therefore not an autonomous aircraft.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helped me teach my son about the Imperial forces December 17, 2012
By Rambone
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My son is very interested in joining the Imperial forces when he grows up. He says he's not sure if he wants to help police the homeland or if he wants to invade foreign countries. So I thought a new Predator drone toy would be a nice gift for him. These drones are used both domestically and internationally, to spy on people and assassinate them at the Emperor's discretion. He just loves flying his drone around our house, dropping Hellfire missiles on Scruffy, our dog. He kept saying that Scruffy was a terror suspect and needed to be taken out. I asked him if Scruffy should get a trial first, and he quoted Lindsay Graham, Imperial Senator: "Shut up Scruffy, you don't get a trial!" I was so proud. I think I'll buy him some video games that promote martial law for Christmas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hours of Racist, Imperialist Fun! December 17, 2012
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this for my son and he spent countless, blissful hours simulating massacres of weddings, funerals, and other family gatherings of brown skinned foreigners! He even realized that if he circled the drone back around on the first responders, his effective kill rate soared! Neat-o!

Educationally, this toy can't be beat - inculcating a predilection for indiscriminate, imperialist violence against non-combatants from oppressed and marginalized communities is precisely in accordance with truly "American values!"

U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!

Leftist trolls spouting hysterical reviews abound here, yet these are the same dolts who supported Obama by re-electing the Obamessiah. Good news O-hole fans, you drove the price of this TOY up 50% so your #2 enemy, a "greedy" corporation (your #1 enemy being the U.S. military), could reap "obscene profits." Everyone should buy one of these TOYS just to drive these fools bat$#!+.

Ben Franklin built the first drone using a kite, string, and a key. It is estimated he took out over 8 thousand red coats with this simple technology. That's 8 thousand British musket wielders that never pointed their muskets at us. Given enough string and a good wind - Franklin would have taken out King George and saved billions of patriot's lives. Amazon do not accede to the demands of the far left and remove this product from your inventory. If you let the wing nuts win -- than they will demand we give up our kites, our string, and our keys. Without keys we cannot lock our doors and our enemies will gain entrance and take our freedom, jewelry, and cash. As soon as I can raise the money to buy this product, I will tie it to the tail of my kite and fly it proudly over the Capital. I invite all truly conservative right thinking Americans to join me with their Maisto MALE Unmanned Aerial Vehicle proudly adhered to our kites during the next violent lightening storm. Together, we may SHOCK the nation.

I bought my budding communist son one of these so that he could pretend to be President Obama and kill some of our neighbors because they are on our "hit list"(we modified the drone to carry air to air missiles and some bunker busters). Unfortunately, my son accidentally took out the wrong neighbors home with a bunker buster and missed hitting the true target, who apparently is one of those "gun lovers" and "patriots." Our son has no respect for the Constitution, just like Obama and Hillary, so this is the perfect toy for a perfect boy!

The real ones are much bigger than this toy however it's a pretty good model. Bob McDonnell(r)(Gov VA) wants to arm the state police with them in Virginia to spy on your house for your own safety. In a world where government fears it's people this is a staple of plutocratic oppression everywhere.

This little gem reminds me of the Kenner's early bird special when Kenner forced all of the fans of Star Wars to cool their heels until they could expand their line of delightful action figures and playsets. Maisto please stop teasing us, I want a home for this little freedom fighting, patriotic, death dealing bugger STAT! nah'm sayin???

What good is this toy without a home? I'm talking ultra cool CIA black site playsets where my little boy and I can "buzz the tower" just like the movie TOP GUN, while heroes interrogate, and torture innocent goatherders that couldn't locate America on the map if they tried.

Also, sign me up for the American FEMA camp playset, where all the bitter clingers, Christians, and pesky Constitutionalists need to go, it could even include NASCAR like sponsorship stickers surrounding it to add even more authenticity (thanks DICK's sporting goods, McDonald's, Microsoft, Goldmann Sach's for steppin'up)!!

You could even play that tear jerking song "I'm proud to be an American" by Lee Greenwood everytime an action figure enters the Fema turnstyles to be real patriotic and whatnot! Thanks devil worshipping big government!

This drone has helped to teach my son how important it is to keep and eye on those neighbors with the Ron Paul stickers on thier cars. It's not just goat herders on the other side of the globe we need to keep Big Brothers boot on. Also get the FBI's warrentless magnetic under car tracking device and the water boarding kit. I dare my wife to spout off about the 4th Amendment one more damn time.

What's next, depleted uranium Play-doh? Yes, let's teach our children that endless war for the benefit of billionaire defense contractors and bankers is okay, that it's okay to kill unarmed civilians as long as it's in the name of "Democracy," that murdering innocent men, women and children is okay as long as it's the government telling you to murder them. I won't mention 9/11 "conspiracies," but isn't it obvious to all by now that war is a racket? Only the mega-rich profit from war while everyone else either suffers or dies. Oh yeah, let's arm and install those evil terrorists in Libya and Syria while we irradiate and/or sexually molest people at our airports to protect us from them. No wonder Al Qaeda has been called "Al CIA Duh." Of course, you need a nebulous "enemy" or boogeyman to fight an unending war. Orwell's "1984" was not supposed to be a book of prophecy.

In a word, disgusting.

Occasionally, people might refuse to do as you say. When you try to buy them, some might even decline your money. A few might even declare your money to be just as fake as theirs. Now you can get rid of these pesky problems much more easily with your new Predator drone! First, sprinkle information over your more trusting, gullible friends, declaring this particular person to be a threat. Next, plant the seed of rebellion in this person's own home, preferably by bribing someone else on the inside. Once the conditions are just right, send in your Predator drone and kill those who refused you. Wait to see which new despot takes over, and immediately test to see if they're adequately corrupt. If not, repeat the process. It's almost too easy to achieve world domination with your new Predator drone. Get yours today, and take out anyone who might threaten your monopoly over the global use of force!

I am currently building a complete functioning drone in my basement. I needed a small scale model for aerodynamic tests (I built a little wind tunnel with some PVC and an old shop vac). THIS IS PERFECT!!!!!

I will do a You Tube video when I'm done, but with an old IPhone GPS guiding it it will be awesome! The fuel system will allow me to loiter on station for up to five hours.

I contacted BATFE and learned that Hellfire missles are rigidly controlled items due to them be fired from semi-auto assault rifles. So, no Hellfires!

What I have managed to come up with is what I call the HCCM system.

What happens is that when a target is spotted, the drone launches a paper and balsa wood canister that opens 30 feet above the target dispensing purified water, liquid soap and a delousing agent. HCCM stands for Hippie Cleansing Canister Munition.

With five hours time over San Fran I've got a lot of work to do!

Whenever my 7-year-old takes his dose of psychotropic medication, he's always obsessed with First Person Shooter videogames. Boy, I want to thank Amazon for their patriotic act of making this MALE (awesome friggin' acronym, Maisto!) unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) available. At first, when little Tommy unwrapped this gift from Santa, he said, "this blows," but when I informed him that this would give him an opportunity to blow up people "Who Hate Us For Our Freedoms," well, little Tommy just lit up.

Now, father and son sit in Little Tommy's tree fort, pretending we're in a 63-degree military installation in Tampa or New Mexico, toggling a joystick and doing some real "collateral damage" on women and children in Pakistan, Afghanistan or Yemen! It's a true bonding experience for father and son -- we're Real American Heroes, making up our own kill list and angling for that Nobel Peace Prize we so richly deserve for bringing Democracy to The Middle East and Africa! [...]

Plus, the real bonus is that I'm preparing Little Tommy for a future career. Let's face it -- our Congress has shipped all our manufacturing jobs to China, and Little Tommy is hopelessly addicted to psychotropic medication. His brain is fried, OK? So I thought he might have a great future with the TSA, groping other 7-year-olds or grandmothers at unconstitutional checkpoints, but considering there will be 30,000 REAL DRONES OVER THE SKIES OF THE U. S. OF A. by 2015, Little Tommy is actually preparing himself for the career of a lifetime by practicing to take out his fellow American citizens with a Hellfire missle. Hoowah! www. nowtheendbegins .com/blog/?p=8504

Look, I listen closely to everything the Brit Piers Morgan tells me. The Second Amendment right to own firearms is evil. So I've destroyed all of Little Tommy's toy guns. But piloting a killer drone is freaking awesome. I highly recommend that all you sheeple step up like me and be REAL American patriots. Turn in your guns, eat your GMO foods, drink your fluoride water, breathe in your chemtrails and BUY YOUR BOYS THIS AWESOME, AWESOME TOY for your kid! Remember -- they hate us for our freedoms. So we need to kill thousands of brown people we don't know remotely with the push of a button. Baba booey, y'all!

I find it despicable that Amazon would allow this Maisto product to be sold on their website. It's all part of our illegitimate government's plan to make surveillance and murder of American citizens commonplace and acceptable in our society. Not to mention all the innocent people around the world who wouldn't even hate us if we would treat them with respect. No New World Order garbage in my shopping cart!

I bought this toy for my son, for Christmas.

Little did he know, that to give him the full experience with the toy, I had already cut off a random hand, foot, arm or leg from his action figures he had in his toy chest!

As he unwrapped this magnificent new toy, I scattered the mutilated action figures and their severed body parts, on the floor behind him. He turned to show me his new gift, and how his eyes opened wide at the spectacle before him.

It was a special moment.

And then, the coup de grace! I provided him with a pair of garden shears, so he could mutilate the toys further as he repeatedly dove his drone at the scattered remains!

Ho ho ho, oh my... What a heartwarming season of joy we had.

p.s. As we speak, weeks later, he patrols the perimeter of our property with his drone. Just in case.

I cant begin to state how great this toy is. I no longer allow my son Little Jimmy to play with toy guns because they are bad and no one should have them. However, there is no better feeling in the world to know that you are on the good guys side when blowing up the evil people of your backyard. I only wish this toy came with small appendages to scatter about the back yard to make it more life like. Im even thinking about going to a Halloween store and picking up lots of fake blood to scatter around the yard. Little Jimmy just loves this toy as we blow the crap out of all the bad people who dress differently than us and pray to the wrong god. As we all know killing children with guns in america is bad, but killing children in other countries with armed united states drones, is great. I can not recommend this toy enough for the future little serial killer, mass murder in your house hold. If he gets really good with this, he could even become a future american leader.

My kids love this toy almost as much as the Gitmo Barbie I got them last year. Athough not historically accurate, they like to use the drone with their Little People Aushwitz set.

I purchased this toy for my child, but would you not know it; the moment I turned my back she was flying it over Iranian airspace. The toy was hacked and captured. I have since asked Mr. A. for it back, but I have yet to see it. All is he said to me was that it was in his yard and now his. I'm going to switch to the one flown over the Vikings/Packers game in hopes that the ones we use on our citizens are harder to hack. Overall great toy.

Every American child should own one of these. It's the perfect way for them to learn to murder unsuspecting human beings. We all know how fun it is to kill people with military drones. Maybe the Government could find a way to hide a fee in one of our bills (tax on our phones for the Obamaphone), so that every American child could own one of these. I highly recommend this toy for all psychopathic parents that want to teach their children how to murder human beings with a drone. It is never too early to start teaching them!

Thank you Amazon! The reviews that this abomination has generated have restored some of my hope and faith in humanity. You should sell an accessory kit consisting of piles of mangled bodies of nationalistic people who tried to defend their homeland from foreign invaders, or who simply attended a wedding party. Iraq has done nothing to us, we've made Afghanistan the opium capital of the world, our own government ran 911, and Obama has placed Al-CIA-da in charge of Libya, Syria, and is hard at work on Iran, while running a new Operation Gladio in the homeland. Welcome to the Fourth Reich.

My son has always exhibited antisocial behavior, so I knew he would love this model predator drone. Sure enough, he hasn't stopped carrying out assassinations in the house "at home" and the backyard "abroad" since Christmas. My main complaint is that the hellfire missiles are not detachable, so my son must use his imagination when envisioning the incineration of Pakistani weddings.

My Ritalin®-fueled first grade son thought it would be so much fun to play "Drop the Hellfire missiles". But when he brought it to school, the taxpayer-funded armed guard overheard him say the word "Hellfire" during recess. The principal immediately assigned him to indefinite detention. Then she called the media, and shamed him at the national level. Now he's depressed and taking Zoloft®. Where did we go wrong? Oh well, at least my new husband and I can finally take that 7 million dollar vacation to Hawai'i! Talk about change... "Yes we did!"

The bible says things such as "Thou shalt not murder" and "Scatter those whom delight in war", but as we are a nation endowed by America's creator with the inalienable right to kick tail where ever we can find it, we can not be led astray by Christian or otherwise universal moral constraints. If ever such a mentality had ruled this nation, it was dealt a death blow on that fateful day when the Neo-con masses of South Carolina righteously booed the Christian concept of "The Golden Rule" as expounded by former Congressman and enemy of all things American Ron Paul, and our beloved emperor Barack Obama further expounded on this resurrection of the American dream by pointing to how its enemies "cling to their guns and religion" and mocked the notion of loving our enemies as Christ taught with regards to our foreign policy. We are at war with terror after all, and all that are needed, are a few good men.

Sadly such good, tech. savvy, video game addicted drones are in short supply of late and much needed to conduct our unmanned war against the human race, so what better way to prepare the next generation for wholesale annihilation of Afghan peasants, Pakistani commoners, Serbian Christians and other such backward, non-western savages than a toy that plays like the real deal. In the Maisto Fresh Metal Tailwinds model is all the educational tools needed to build that rugged, individualistic killer needed to sit at the console and jam the American boot up the backside of all enemies, foreign and domestic, and also to make sure that our beloved citizenry aren't poisoning their subservient minds with such things as The U.S. Constitution, Christian non-violence, or various subversive writings penned by a bunch of old white men who dabbled in such fictional concepts as natural rights. This baby handles quite smoothly, presents a small scale version of the real deal, and is sure to be an excellent stocking stuffer as we celebrate the holidays and wish peace to all on earth (including those who are sent to an untimely grave in the name of our beloved Federal Government).

Whether you wish for your sons and daughters to be future spies for the omnipotent Uncle Sam domestically, or his judges, juries and executioners abroad, this is the first step in what is sure to be an exemplary career in service of the state. And for those with an eclectic taste, this baby can also open up job opportunities in the demolition field, particularly that of homes, mosques and Eastern Orthodox Churches, an absolute must in this challenging economy. Your kids will jump for joy at the thought of turning unsuspecting wedding attendees and school children into scattered atoms, and for a limited time we'll be throwing in a copy of the U.S. Declaration of Independence with a free lighter for a realistic, flaming target to bombard again and again.

Land of the free, home of the brave, indoctrinated from cradle to grave.

Drones are spectacular when you need constant surveillance over a free society. These will become even better after the disarmament of law abiding citizens. The UN loves these and they love the idea of weakening any resistance against the widely known globalist agenda.

The Maisto replica RQ-1 Predator satisfies the requirement for realism, accuracy and detail in manufacture alongside excellent of playability. The blister pack reminds us of the danger of choking, this attention to detail (especially when the Predator is used in dusty countries in the troubled Middle east) suggests that the Maisto marketing department have really done their homework. I bought ten of these for my boy because, as he so rightly says, "So many countries, so little time". He hasn't played with his Matchbox V2 Buzz Bomb once since he became a "Drone Operator". It's given him a real grasp of imperialism, murder of innocents, the art of war and the complex geography of the Middle East. Thank You Maisto, we look forward to your Cluster Bomb, Land Mine and Gas canister multi pack with anticipation hitherto unseen in the world of play.

My son was developing some disturbing hippie pinko opinions about going to foreign countries and blowing up brown people. He was complaining that the brownies are turning out to be pretty handy with guns, IEDs and whatnot, and they fight back, and that's no fun :( With this great toy, we did some at-home demonstrations of how you can still kill the brownies with complete impunity!! My only complaint is that I couldn't find figurines of dead hajis blown up in their huts, that would be the perfect complement for this toy!!

The coolest detail about this toy are the small body fragments you can litter around your target area following a drone missile strike on a wedding party. THEN (this is where the real fun begins) you circle back in an hour and fire MORE missiles at the people rescuing survivors and mourning the dead! Sure if another country did such a thing we'd decry it as heinous terrorism, but when good Ol' Uncle Sam's finger is on the joystick, you can bet that we call what we hit our target, no matter what.

Seriously? This toy is inappropriate and ought to be removed from Amazon as soon as possible. If it hasn't occurred to you, "drone" murder is still murder. As in "war crime". As in "international tribunal".

ORDER NOW and get FREE packs of Cluster Bombs (banned by all countries except the US and Israel) as well as the latest 2013 assortment of Land Mines (also banned by international treaty except for the US and Israel).

THIS IS AN EDUCATIONAL TOY AND I HOPE TO GOD THAT MY FELLOW MURCUN SHEEPLE LEARN SOMETHING FROM IT.

As much as this toy is fun, it completely misses the joy a child feels when he can wield his own weaponry in close-quarter combat.
I mean, we all played Cowboys & Indians and had lots of fun (and where are the Indians now?!) with our revolvers and bow & arrows and knives, shot, thrust and thrown to eliminate the enemy in a gory mess.

Now all the children will learn is that by moving a joystick and squeezing a trigger, you can eliminate the enemy. There's no visceral experience in that! There are no screams of pay and invectives during play and the "Indians" are eliminated hundreds at a time!

The biggest advantage, of course, is that the little child can make whooosh noises a whole lot easier than the "hooowdy pardner" and "ugh, pow-wow" noises of the Cowboys and Indians games of yore.
Also, learning that the threat of Those Brown People Over There can't easily be solved with revolvers and horses, but far faster with anonymously dropped bombs is a vital lesson. It makes playing with your friends take less time, and it might push your little rug-rat to make more mixed-race friends to have as playing partners/victims. Synchronized death FTMFW.

So all in all, it's a great educational toy, that challenges the runts to come up with new rules, learn a new game and make more minority friends.
On the downside, it is a relatively short game ("wooooosh, BOOOM" all brown kids fall down, time to go home) and it lacks the grizzly death of "I shot you in the gut, roll around a bit in pain before you die!" along with the hide & seek aspect of finding the enemy before you eviscerate him (or her - no discrimination in this household).

I can taste no lead in the paint, and haven't easily choked on any small parts either. Testing will continue, but I think it's safe enough for now.

Amazon's notes at the side ask me to be "detailed and specific" in this review and to address: "What would you have wanted to know before you purchased this product?"

I suppose I would want to know what an unmanned predator drone is, how it acts, who it kills, how, and why. I think I would like to read this story first, about the experience of a drone pilot who has killed a child:
[...]

Then I would like to imagine my child in the same situation, running a machine that extrajudicially kills (adults, children, dogs, parakeets). I would like to ponder what it means for one country's intelligence agency to have so much power over killing extrajudiciously, with too-little oversight:
[...]

I would probably link it to a rise in weaponry culture, in "more guns/bombs/drones make us safe" culture in the US. Then I suppose I would decide not to immerse my child in this sort of culture of weaponry, not only because I want all the world's children to be safe, but because I want him (or her) to be safe, too.

I remember playing with toy bulldozers when I was a young boy thinking how cool it was to be able to destroy things with my awesome machine. God what I would give to be able to be a child my sons age these days. They can make believe destroying houses and buildings from miles away up in the sky. They don't have to get dirty, and are more environmentally clean than those dirty diesel engines. Plus, as an added bonus, the little brown people don't have a warning to be able to run away so you get to kill many more people while you destroy the buildings. Plus, the mindset that this instills in my son will one day, I hope, allow him to become a productive member of the ruling class.

This is an awesome toy to instill a sense of exploration in your child. Geography of foreign lands will come naturally as you and your child act out imaginary strikes on Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria, Libya, and many more! Combined with the optional targets, the wedding,the funeral and the dusty road with an American citizen and his son, you can act out these scenarios very realistically! Teaching the moral superiority and callous disregard for other people and nations has never been easier.

Usually you have to gun down at least 4 people without dying in Call of Duty 4 to obtain this one. It is really hard to do, especially when the maps are teeming with boosting campers and camping boosters of all sorts. Even then, you only have it for less than a minute, and all you get to see is the enemy dots converge on your position right before you see the humiliating playback of some guy with all the go fast perks and a care package grenade running behind you to stab you in the back, and keep on running as if you never existed. Fortunately, Maisto had enough foresight to produce this awesome scale model of the RQ-1 Predator UAV for you to enjoy anytime, even if you have a 1:10 Kill-Death ratio. You can now tie this on a string, and hang it over your bed to sleep with the comfort that there is no enemy that can hide from your die cast Kill Streak Reward.

I bought this for my son and he spent countless, blissful hours simulating massacres of weddings, funerals, and other family gatherings of brown skinned foreigners! He even realized that if he circled the drone back around on the first responders, his effective kill rate soared! Neat-o!
