FPV trucks in the Desert

The wind has been blowing for a couple of day's and we went out to a Desert Race in Barstow Ca. I wanted to get some race footage from my easystar but the wind gods wouldn't allow it till the next day and then only one flight . Good thing I had my FPV E-Maxx and a buddy with a nitro truck so we could have some fun while we where waiting to load up . This was a blast and the fastest I have driven in FPV. The vibrations weren't to bad concidering how rough the terrain is with rocks everywhere. I think for now on I'll run a body on the E-Maxx after dumping a bunch of dirt out of it when we finished playing. When I get a chance I'll pick up some larger tires (and lower gears) to help smooth out the ride

Yeah he has a Hopped up big motor and some bling on that thing, it really moves . We had a blast running around and forgot about the wind. The bummer though it's always over heating or going out of range and shuts off . Can't drive under 3/4 thottle or it dies and won't restart til it cools down not to mention the glow plugs he kept replacing , it's got some small issues he needs to work out .
We placed a Hobby-Lobby FlyCamOne v2 camera on it but the high speed and low to the ground view made it impossible to watch as it was just a blurr. I won't risk my wireless gear on it with no protection and I've seen that thing flipping wildly through the air .

Yeah while you at the store, also pick up a nitro engine and then head over to Schucks auto and pick a Sneaky Pete NOS tank!!! That will show your buddy a thing or two and perhaps kick dirt on his hood this time!!!

Very cool video Scott!!! Once again .. a never disappointing vid!!!!

That was a cool video Scott . Matt's nitro truck is fast . I think 2 trucks is a fun race but the trucks should have the same power plant lol .

Thanks guys That was fun . I have another video from the same day I'll share later. I'm working on my buddy Matt to get a new E-maxx and set him up with FPV gear. He's not much into flying other then he spots for me but he's sold on the FPV driving thing . What ever it takes to get them pluged in...

Pretty cool. Needs more power though. I was hoping to see the coke cans flying across the room!
