    Would it be a bad idea to add FPV equipment to this 1/4-1/5 Crawler because its 'all' aluminum?
    ....interference?, or no worries?

    Man, that would be awesome if you had the money!
    Alloy won't cause any problems. In fact if it is between any other electrics it will help shield interference.

    The antennas should be above the frame. I can't see it causing any more problems than what has already been built. Dang, someone beat me to the larger crawler. Can't afford it now but I figure that it would be close to the ultimate platform. Large enough for any equipment, and tired big enough to crawl up steps with ease.

    Hey calidave ! My Tonka Summit (mystery summit remember, with Scooby) should be ready for the summer. In the meantime, I like playing with my stock summit. Added DL UHF for long range. Check this video:

    So far I went to over 1000 feet without problem. My video range (300 mW 1.3) ends there for now but I have a 800 mW in the mail so will test that soon. If you have a 72 mhz I would try that first. People are getting some good range with them (up to a mile). Check for Woby and Replayreb videos on vimeo and youtube, they were using 72mhz.

    Thanks for the nice comment on the vid

    Damn I need a summit asap! Too cool! But so expensive here in Europe (850 dollars)...

    I landed my hexa once at 500 meters (~2000ft) and I had still control, so you car guys should be safe with UHF!

    Expensive yes, but the summit is IMO the best truck for FPV because it is big and heavy, this helps when goign across obstacles as well as low gear and locking diffs. High speed is good too, so long distance on flat terrain is easy and not too boring.

    UHF is good but running on the ground with lots of obstacles can lead to some failsafes. So far i had a couple going behind big concrete blocks 800 feet away, but driving around a big shop with metal clading was all good. I use UHF because I have it, if not I would use a 72 mhz radio.
