The RC Newb Podcast: Episode 46 - Experiencing Surface FPV

By: Tim Gluth

As the FPV craze sweeps the aircraft side of the radio-control hobby, it hasn’t hit full stride when it comes to R/C cars and trucks. After watching folks mount FPV cameras and gear to their machines (and have an amazing time with the experience), I decided to jump in and see what all of the fuss was about.

Not only has FPV provided a new set of challenges, but it’s opened up an entirely new world of experiences within the hobby. In this episode of the podcast, I’ll share a few of those, as well as providing details around the gear that I’m using as a “starter kit”.

Show Notes:

  • If you’re interested in both FPV and the R/C crawler scene, New Bright has launched a new model that combines both in a low-cost package. The DashCam Jeep Trailcat is a fun little, 1/14-scale toy that not only looks amazing, but can also give you the feel for FPV without much of an up-front investment.
