Wobby's FPV truck set up

Wobby hasn't been much active lately and his inbox is full. Does anyboby here knows if he has posted the "how to" of this FPV truck set up. I know he has the Summit and a Slash. I believe more of the truck videos were made with the Summit. The body is not stock so I'm looking for his thread or where he might have posted that information.

How can clicking on his name can help? I checked out his blog and his, somewhat recent, post history. That's how I know he is not here much. The guys has way too MANY posts.... good post and ALWAYS trying to help others with useful information instead of just playing a smart as*& replies like others do. Props to Wobby. Anyway, yeah, I couldn't find the history of how he created the body for the Summit, we have all seen many times.

Well I see extensive detailed photos of his various ground vehicles throughout his blog,
including various evolutions of the Summit, which I notice is not referenced in
the link posted above.

Ian, Kev,
Thanks for helping out.


Merlin703,
Yeah sorry, my inbox is always full.
I keep emptying it, has only a temporary effect, lol.


Anyways, what body did you want to know about?
Are you asking about this "Century models ?" Jeep Body on a cheap 4WD buggy chassis ?

This is the only video i have ever posted of that Jeep setup.
BEACH BABE Fun in the Sun Jeep (4 min 46 sec)



We bought these "Static display" Plastic Jeep boddies of ebay for about $100 each delivered.
But you wouldn't believe it, couple weeks ago, i saw our local $2 shop had them on sale for $20, they had mountains of them.
A friend of mine went in to town on Sunday to pick some up, and they were all gone, shame.

Do some search for a Willy`s jeep and you maybe find that body somewhere
But why not do something else and new that nobody else have used

A really small one, with a really loud siren playing the ice cream truck song.
Drive it around the neighborhood and get video of the kids running after it.
Make it fast enough to get away..

Hi Wobby, thanks for stopping by. If I'm not mistaken the century model is the one on your jeep. Since I now have a Summit, I would like to get something like the body you use on your jeep (room to put all the FPV electronics on the body to become one piece) and with no mods to little mods to make it fit in the Summit. Based on your various videos, you have tried various bodies. Which one would you recommend? I like the jeep like look... manly enough that even a Barby looks bad ass.
I think my Summit and my GoPro need a nice looking body so let me know what you suggest. I'm assuming the bodies your LHS is selling for $20 bucks will not fit the Summit and they probably don't ship all the way to Virginia, the US so... hopefully you can give me some options/ideas to find something cool. Thanks again for stopping by.
