Problem Child - Had a killer remote control helicopter scene where he flew it around the neighborhood shooting things with BB's from the dual mounted BB guns before crashing it through the front door of his house.
Made me always want a RC helicopter

In 'Home Alone 3', the main character uses an RC truck to do some damage to the villains. On a side note, I still think that 'Home Alone 2' was the best in the seies. Common flies an RC helicopter in 'Just Wright'. Also, although it's not a movie, the main character flies an RC helicopter in the beginning of an episode of 'The Mentalist'.

I saw this movie when I was pretty young. From what I remember it was kind of like Home Alone, only the enemies were foiled exclusively by RC stuff. I'm sure the movie was pretty terrible, but when you're a kid it doesn't take much to make you enjoy a movie.

To add a bit of useless info on the Dead pool scene with the black rc vette. That was a RC10 driven by Jay Halsey. Read about it my first copy of Radio Control Action mag back in the day!!

Also, the nitro sounds were dubbed in. The actual car was electric.

Also, I know it's not a movie per se, but they're bigger than many movies. Top Gear has had several features involving RCs. One where they RC'd a bunch of full-scale cars and raced 'em around a quarry, another where they RC'd a G-Wiz and raced it against normal RCs. First was a Hot Bodies truggy, then after that got crushed, an HPI Savage. Then in yet another episode Richard tried his hand at flying a trainer....which didn't go well. Rammed it through the side of their production office. He then contacted a more experienced pilot, who then was tasked with flying a Reliant Robin they made into a space shuttle...which didn't go well either. Then there was the time Jeremy had a toy-grade quad copter controlled via iPhone in the studio for a news segment. He proceeded to crash it in such a way that he broke the studio. All power gone. Yet another news segment features a toy-grade micro that can climb walls. They stuck it on the outside of the BBC studio building and drove it on the window behind a news broadcast I think.

Not a movie, but "Keeping up with the Kardashians" has Bruce Jenner messing around with RC Heli's all the time....don't ask. My wife DVR's this **** and subjects me to it when the Yankees aren't playing.  Thanks God she's a baseball fan, too!

"Monster Garage" HPI Savage. Jesse James and his crew bash with a bunch of HPI Savages. Obvious product placement, but funny nonetheless.

Do TV shows count? There was an episode of Stargate Atlantis where 2 guys were racing RC cars.
