Tamiya TT02 - Subaru Impreza WRC99 - Limited Edition: First rally test (1 min 27 sec)

This very first session has been performed with Torque Tuned Power limited to 50% at the start, to 70% at the end.

Hydraulic dampers are really missing, the car is moving a lot. Hop-Up dampers will improve that.

Hi !

I received an Action Cam with for main purpose to be used on my RC models: it’s a GIT2 Pro from GitUp

You just have to know that the difference between the GIT2 and GIT2Pro concerns the provided fastening solutions.

The cam weight 64g and measure 59mm x 40mm x 30mm

The beast own exactly the same dimensions than a Hero 3 from GoPro, so compatible with all Gopro family accessories.

Regarding its main characteristics, we have: a 16M sensor supplied by Sony

These very interesting video recording modes :

4K Interpolated 24fps
1440P en 30fps
1080P en 60fps
720P en 120fps

High recording speeds will ensure a good fluidity of movies for our very fast RC models but equally to perform beautiful slow motions.

Other very interesting characteristics :
- An external microphone plug via micro USB, a good way to avoid the main issue of sports cam : the sound quality !
- An optical stabilization: one of the most efficient available on action cameras

The box just after opening : the cam is put in a foam block, very well protected.

Provided accessories with the « Pro » package of the Git2

Last week-end was not only the VHRC Trophy session but the Large Scale 1/4 Formula 1 demo too

These cars are always very impressive to look on asphalt, more when the wether is not perfect: rain came just when F1 came out of pits

This year, a very impressive prototype of Brushless F1 with the same combo ESC/Motor than my Ferrari 330P4.
This car is just astonishing, with a top speed estimated to 110km/h and so much acceleration than rear tires turned to balloons!
