    My second ground fpv build

    Hi all! I'm relatively new to fpv but have worked/played in rc hobbies for many years. I first was introduced to rc ground fpv via youtube by watching videos by Traxxalu who totally inspired me to do fpv in rc trucks. I had alot of my inspiration by his builds and have copied some of them and of course, try to make it my own personal touches as well.

    Here's my latest truck sporting a sandy beige coat of paint. It's still being built and the chasis is from a stretched out Traxxas Stampede.







    Here's a couple of the original fpv project I built years ago.

    I'm using the immersion 600mw 5.8 raceband with the foxeer "mushroom" antennae. Sorry if I'm not using the right terminology here. It gets really good signal/distance. I've not tested it's actual distance as I've only run in my neighborhood. I've not lost signal yet.

    I'm almost done with this. Just tidying up the rear part. Originally I had all the wiring and stuff exposed.

    I'm late! Ah nice to see a pede on FPV, did great smooth job building a clean looking dashboard. Great job skywarn72. I had a pede chassis too but haven't make my move turning it into FPV yet because its 2WD except for my 2WD buggies. At least 2WD is faster than your cousin the Summit.
