FPV Chevy Summit

Had some time over the christmas holiday to finally put this all together.

The Summit is running a Neu 1520 1Y 1600KV brushless with a Kershaw design motor mount. Mamba monster esc. The tyres are rc4wd Rok Lok 4.0, and bead locks are axial oversized narrows.

Using the stock summit 2.4Ghz at the moment for RC which is fairly poor. I have a corona 36mhz to put in which I will do asap.

The Video is a 1.2Ghz 800mw sunsky with Sn777 camera mounted to a servo (for pan) in the drivers seat. The whole video system is powered by the balance plug, on one of the two lipos powering the car.

Run times are an hour or so if I'm in first gear.

Turned out nicer than I thought it would!

Wow this is like a review! Incredible

Question... you mentioned being in "first gear"
So since you have an FPV setup, and I hope you have audio, do you do the transmission by sound? Also is there a clutch? How would you change gears via tx? ie what button or toggle/dial/switch etc?

The summit has both high and low gears and lockable diffs, all of which are controlled from the stock radio.
