Sold
FPV Tonka Summit

I was in the process of making this for myself until I got myself the original one.
Here's the build log on my blog:
http://amazingrcvideos.blogspot.com/...mit-build.html
The pictures on the blog have a picture of a Barbie I borrowed from a friend's daughter and is not included. The video on the blog gives you an idea of what to expect if you use a GoPro. No GoPro included.

Includes everything as follows:
Traxxas Summit with 2 7-cell 3000 mAh NiMH batteries
Tonka body modified for FPV and mounted on Summit (4 clips and it comes right off)
Steering wheel modified to turn with the wheels with GI Joe driving
Servo extensions to reach receiver
Pan/tilt unit (made with a cutout for the A/V out to fit a GoPro HD Hero 2)
Side mirrors
900MHz 500mW Lawmate transmitter with whip antenna
900MHz receiver with RCA cables
Panasonic CX-161 5V color camera
12V mic
All wiring to run video transmitter, mic, and camera off a single 3S LiPo
2 3S LiPos for video transmitter / receiver

I have two options for this sale:
1. Without and you use your own gear and setup yourself. You'll need at least a 7 channel receiver if you plan on using your own.
2. With 9C transmitter and receiver all setup

All you need to complete is a battery charger, goggles/screen for video unless I missed something. Ask if you think something is missing.

Pricing:
$850 without FPV gear
$950 with FPV gear

Shipping ONLY in the CONUS as I can't guarantee anything overseas. However, if you're willing to pay for ALL the shipping costs overseas through UPS or FedEx in addition to the above and release me from any responsibility once it ships, I might consider but international shipping for 30+ pounds is going to be incredibly expensive.
PM with any questions.

Some more completed pictures.

Omgomgomg! I want it so bad!

But I'd miss the fun of building it myself

Great build, good luck with the sale.

One more price drop. Then I might do something different.
