It's good to see a project like this, it's been a while.....

I recently put a FPV setup on my Wraith and went for a drive around the backyard in and out of the garden etc.... it's a pretty cool experience! I have a spare set of FPV goggles so my youngest daughter used them and loved it...

Yes I have FPV on my 1/8 and my 1/10 scales, it's really fun driving around on a smooth path as it cuts down the vibration and feels like a driving game. With the baja you could almost fit a 2+3 axis gimbal setup and have it be protected under the rollcage, that would make offroad driving a lot less shaky

I also plan to set up a light bar and brake lights/turn signals using an arduino and digital led's



I like the sound of this FPV. Just wondering did you buy a FPV kit  or do you make it all up ? dontknow

4092 doesn't fit the rovan conversion kit, mounting holes too wide. Basically 1 problem after another. Everything would have been fine but this is what happened.

Tapping bit broke after 2 uses, getting stuck in my piece of aluminum so i would have to saw off another piece.
also my friends drill press i was supposed to use i couldnt so I didnt have the tools to do the job well.


Can you post a pic of the mounting plate. Could be that you might just be able to drill two new mounting holes to line up with the motor threaded holes dontknow
