The Maiden Voyage of the "Creek Crawler"

From the builder:

This was my test run of the creek crawler and it turned out very good! I have now taken it to other creeks and streams and I have seen a lot of fish and wildlife on these adventures. I plan to take the creek crawler on some cool adventures, so stay tuned!! There is no telling what you might see. I also plan to explore all kinds of streams, rivers, creeks, drainages in Kentucky in HD. Please feel free to comment or leave a idea on where to take the creek crawler next! I also plan to take it to Rockcastle River into bear country!! I have rafted this river and seen them there.

Be nice if there were a picture of the boat and how it operates. Neat idea and a good video. Pete

I searched but this was all I could find on it. I thought the boat FPV concept was novel enough to feature. I'm working on an RC truck FPV system in the same vein.

Thanks for the reply Jim. In the video it showed a picture of the boat but it seemed confused with the background so not very clear. It did do a nice trip down the creek though and the camera was adjustable as it went along. Looks like it worked very well.
By the way what does FPV mean? Not familiar with the term.
The truck sounds interesting too. Pete

FPV is first person video. This segment of the hobby has really got me excited lately.
