On-road or off, these new 1/18-scale machines will give you a new perspective on your hobby.
Have you ever imagined what it would be like to see the track or path that your radio-controlled car or truck is traveling on, from the ground level? While on-board cameras such as the Go-Pro and others make it easy to experience that sensation after the fact, purpose-built, surface R/C vehicles with realtime FPV (first person view) equipment included haven’t quite made their mark yet.
This summer, Dromida is hoping to change that with the introduction of two new, ready-to-run (RTR) 1/18-scale vehicles, featuring FPV cameras and goggles. Whether your interests take on on or off-road, a monster truck and rally car will be the first vehicle types in Dromida’s lineup to introduce this new camera gear.
Both the rally car and the monster truck are powered by 370-size, brushed motors and feature four-wheel drive. Waterproof electronics and a 2.4GHz radio system can also be found in each model.
What sets these new machines apart from the pack is an array of included Tactic FPV gear. A 600TVL FPV camera, 5.8GHz video transmitter, and 5.8GHz monitor, along with FPV goggles, are part of each vehicle set. The camera is pre-installed and shouldn’t require much calibration before the first run. Simply install your batteries, put on your goggles, and go.
These vehicles are both priced at $229.99 And can be expected to hit hobby store shelves in the summer of 2017. Learn more about these two new FPV-equipped vehicles and sign up for email updates on both of them at dromida.com.
