Hey guys, check out my new project.
Ive been getting interested in FPV and I wanted to try it on the ground before I take to the sky. So I figured a emaxx would make the perfect base for my rig. I made a extended chassis out of aluminum. The newbright hummer body is held on similar to the stock body. Im using the 2 speed transmission with the wide gear ratios like the traxxas summit. For now Im using 2 ds1015 servos for steering, A mamba pro esc, and a 2100kv brushless motor.
For my "Ground Station" I threw one together with some foam, a used car stereo, and some old batteries to power it. Im using a cheap wireless home security camera for video and audio. Some old futaba servos were perfect for a basic pan and tilt mechanism. And finally I wired everything to a DX6i with a full range receiver.
Wow I had no idea how much fun FPV could be. It made me feel like I was driving my first rc car again but more fun. Things seem to happen much quicker when your driving FPV and I couldnt help but see how fast I could make a laps around my house.
Well enjoy the pictures, and to anyone thats thinking about getting started in FPV I would say go ahead its easy and loads of fun!
