So...

How big is the camera you used for this??

Does it record to a memory card or transmit back to a PC??

More details please :)

I had a try at this a few years ago with a small cam off ebay but found the rf interferance from the motor really interrupted the signal when the throttle was full open. I never got the system properly tested though, it was a friends system and I dont think the 9v batterys he had werent particularily fresh :p

I would love to have a go with something a bit more high tech, we had a quick go at driving by looking at the screen too. That was interesting to say the least.

Unfortunately the camera wasnt wireless, its a digital camera tie wrapped to the chassis ! (Casio EX-P505) I bought it a few years ago specifically for its video (when I lost video due to getting an SLR).

Its a pity Youtube compresses the video so much as the original quality is fantastic.

I have been tempted to tape my konica Minolta Z5 to my losi but would be afraid of rolling with the really high cog it would give you.
