Doing night missions ! Kids sleep at that hour The lights on the summit work well. May add a couple of led flashlight. The security 2000 cam is very good: I went in the trail near the house and it is not lighted at all. Could see some stars I really have to do some night fly next summer. Meanwhile, driving the summit is way cool (but not cold, driving from inside is very comfy )

Did I tell you I built a snowtrack to drive around the house ? Video coming soon

i just discovered my hex puts extreme fear into my dog, she hid behind the garage while i was flying it tonight in the dark with the bright lights on

this can only lead to further abuse of my dog....

You know you have something with alcohol when you talk about it every other post

Depends: can it be wrong if I'm drinking on the couch in front of the TV while I drive the Summit outside ?

Snow is now hard as ice here after some warm weather and rain followed by cold temp. Can drive everywhere again ! Fun times

Will try a run in the walking trail in the center of town tonight, should not be much people with the cold around -17 C. Summit and FPV system found to behaves well in cold weather after a 10 minutes run during lunch today, so should not be a problem. The lipos let me run for almost an hour.

Anybody wants some pics of the final install ?

pic away my boy pic away....

you and you flipping radio controlled car almost make me want to have one. the only thing that is stopping me is that I know it would get stole around here

It has been snowing around here but unfortunately I am on a mission tomorrow. I hope this will stick until Sunday so I can get a snow flight.
Work has gone manic since the start of the year, no real time for hobbies ...

That's why a horn is in the plan. Some put a siren. A walkie talkie is in the plan too so I can say to the stoler how I feel about him...and that the truck has a recording device and a tracking device.

Here are the pics;

interesting...yes a walkie talkie would be great to scare people off
I was even considering getting a 900Mhz set for the transmitter as it would be less susceptible to ground obstacles....

I sure would like to have a go in the fresh snow

You really should all have a ground FPV vehicle. When you need to FPV but time is limited to take the car (1:1 scale) to the flying field and set everything up, just plug batteries, throw the FPV vehicle out the front door and drive. It's soooo easy. You certainly all have a park nearby or some sidewalks or even a nice backyards to drive onto.

Also, never been so easy to check what your neighbor bought for a patio set. I'm telling you guys, this is as addictive as FPV flying.

I really need to have someone get into FPV so we can fly/drive together !

Bit the bullet and ordered a 9x. Hope I can relocate the dial on top to the sides and make them sliders so i can control the pan and tilt. This will be my new FPV Tx. has the v2 programming. May mod it later to er9x firmware.

Also got the light kit and a 2500 mAh lipo. Should not charge often and should fly loooooooong flights. Or drives.
