getting good video is much harder with a boat than a car at longer distanaces

even with the antenna on a mast on a boat video is an accompishment

post a video when you get a chance, we would love to see one

FPV boating is also much more difficult in all regards

with a boat comparred to a car the boat cannot go even close to as far away as the car

but makes the HAM experience more fun to try
both on a boat and a car

on a plane it is a peice of cake comparred to a car or boat

Here is the first video of my Summit. Sorry for the quality, but is a test, not headed in FPV. Coming soon, you'll see something better. Stay connected!

The video is recorded on board with the Micro-camera Car Keys 808, the issue of quality is not wearing glasses, so I could realize that perhaps I went too fast and movements were too fast.

the Italian loafers are obviously handmade from one of the oldest Neapolitan factories

Hi David!
Stay tuned
Antenna -problem will be fixed. Rogerroger

The cool thing about this is: i have another Pan-servo mount which fits for my Twinstar, so i can also use the Tilt incl. the cam-mount on both systems. 1 screw an 3 cables..thats all

my pod on the car is from my cularis , fits right on there with some tape
great way to test the system

cool you make great videos with great music

nice looking truck

I wish I had a 4X4

mine is just a 2X4

but fun because weight really does not matter to me with a car or truck

alows me to fool around and test stuff

on the esc i took off the red wire and then added an external rc battery to help save the esc

cars suck back the battery big time

took mine out yestrday to a running track/oval, where people run around in circles

it was funny as i passed them and driffeted around the corners.

And no one knew who was controling the car, hehehe

I bought it from Globe-Flight.de; Although the pan-servomount is a prototype for the Summit, i think there will be available different systems for the most FPV-common models soon.
