When you can't fly, you can drive ! And when its cold, what's better than to FPV from the couch in the basement with the big flat screen ?

Summit FPV - The snow track (5 min 11 sec)

After driving the Summit FPV for a couple of months, here is my final set up. I now run the Summit with a Dragon link UHF system coupled to my DX7. I drive with the right stick, control pan and tilt with the left stick. Differentials locking is on flaps and low/high gear is on gear. I still have one channel left for an accessory, most probably I'll add a horn.

The goal is still to build a Tonka Summit, but for winter I prefer to stick with the stock body. So far it is plenty fun and I really love the truck. I use a security 2000 camera for night drive and a GoPro for day drive.
