    Default FPV on the cheap from Hobby King



    It's getting a little more affordable to get into FPV setups

    They also have a wheel and pedal setup.

    I saw that today. Might be a good christmas present to myself. I could see this being a fun challenge out at the HOP.

    Way cool!!! Now we're getting somewhere! Matt C once built a similar wheel unit using some old pedals and a paper plate.
    Down the road, when the perfected next gen systems come out and competition has driven the price even lower, I may also have to indulge.
    This wheel/pedal unit also seems to require the use of their rc transmitter.

    I've been watching that new steering wheel setup since I saw the preview video on YouTube. I tend to run fpv in the winter time with a friend and I was saying last winter how cool a setup like this would be. I'm hoping they eventually sell just the little blue box because many people already have the wheel and pedals. It would save on shipping, big time, which would be great. You can find the wheel and pedal setups pretty cheap at the source....just need that little box. I'm waiting for reviews to show up.

    Default Car FPV system from Hobby King

    This could be awesome and it is scaleable to add a camera, head tracking and transmitter. I think the basement race series is about to get a lot more real!

    I could just leave my car up there and drive from here... then I don't have to smell you guys?
    Once every 4hrs you may have to flip me back over as I make the odd mistake.

    .. Switch your battery every 4 hours, flip you over every 4 minutes.

    This setup would be great fun on a slow trailride for sure.
