Drive it from anywhere in the world. This is just a simple test prototype. What i really have in mind is much better. Throughout the entire video the truck is being controlled over the web using custom client and server software (not with a regular RC remote). Skype is used to view the webcam mounted on the truck. Battery charge and WiFi signal strength data are sent back to the client. With a verizon internet card this thing could potentially go anywhere. I need to find a large tank chassis for the next prototype. it needs to be 3'x1' or larger and cost around $200 or less. that's around 1/10th scale I believe..
Specs: Traxxas Slash (this is not a good truck to use but it's better than buying one) extremely beefy springs from a hardware store. 65 turn motor with 90 tooth gear Acer Aspire one netbook. Wireless N adapter Microsoft VX-6000 webcam Pololu servo controller. Lots of zip ties and some hot glue.
