Saw this in the ToysRus ad and had a laugh...Little cheap FPV car with night vision. FPV going main stream.

This one is even nicer!

I bought it off ebay for $25 it was wasted money. The toy is barely usable, it is not proportional RC, B/W low res. camera, worthless LCD, no audio 70ft fixed channel video link.When car in motion video breaks so you have to stop to get idea where you headed

lol You could use the car for regular fpv gear.. Also You should convert the car either to 72mhz or 27, but not the toy 27 thought..

With its low clearance and no suspention the car can ride only on smooth floor or carpet.
Thanks to the toy I had new look at my Losi and Kyosho trucks. Whole new world when camera sits on oil shocks and you fast enough to chase cats and dogs

Yup probably is a ne world I could imagine since I had a camera on a car with no shocks.. it sucked, but the thing was fast. Anyway You do apreciated the things you have when you see that you could have been using something worse!
