6.7 miles off road

Not sure RC trucks were designed for this kind of distance off road, but by now, ground vehicles had gone hundreds of miles on pavement without issue.

6 mile offroad drive (12 min 24 sec)

Had to program for 9min/mile to get 10min/mile. Steering was quite manual on dirt. A wheel fell off when going in reverse at the end, but otherwise it did the business.

According to the internet, the reservoir was at 46% of capacity.

For all the shortcomings of a semi-manual, ground based camera, the results were pretty good compared to flying follow cams. The limitations of flying cams were sorely evident. They could never go for 1 hour, in dense trees, flying that close.

The human eye has a very acute ability to differentiate the fine change from hard track to loose gravel, predicting where the path is a few feet ahead. Just doing this automatically would be a huge jump, but the computer is hopelessly stumped.
