This things looks kinda cool. Its probly not very fast but it has a built in camera and the screen to view what the truck sees is right on the controller. :eek: here is the truck (http://www.radioshack.com/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=CTLG&category%5Fname=CTLG%5F009%5F008%5F000%5F000&product%5Fid=60%2D4337)

Tell me what you think:D

The controller looks cool, but too bad the truck still has that "toyish" look to it. And the price seems a little steep, just look at what you can buy in the hobby world for 200+ dollars.

I'm pretty much a newbie, but 10+ years ago I bought my first RC truck from Radio Shack. Not a real serious truck. Takes 4 C rechargable batteries. Has selectable 2wd 4wd. Digital proportional. Low speed and high speed. Still runs good after all these years.

250 bucks for a radiocrap truck with a camra.

it would be neat for a while but you would get tired of it after a while and it would get put in the courner of your room.

which would you rather have

stampede or the radioshack.

Well I think the camera is neet. It's also cool because you don't need to be in direct sight of the truck as you run it around turns and corners.

geez, 4 200 you can buy a blimp with a camera on it, i'd take that anyways cuz u can fly it around the house

(The fantom Spammer Strikes again)

I would not buy that truck, Well I may but this is what I really want from it.

A minicam in a shock absorbing container.
A transmitter that has a 2 Mile range.
A small poortable T.V. that can pick the frequency.
Ease of mounting this on a R/C

This may cost like $150-$300 but It would be better.

Mount this in a T/E-Maxx or anything you want and you have your own spy vehicle.

ON another note:
I've never had a TOY R/C last me longer than 6 months in operational order. I make them do spinouts, power slides, jumps and all sorts of stuff that destroys them quickly.

this is probably cheaper, the camara goes for about $120

looked that up.

If I got a portable TV it would cost over $250. But it would be fun still

Made it on my christmass list
