    That was probably the best r/c car fpv I've seen so far! Also I'd love to be able to wire that robotic arm to the phantom.

    Ditto on wanting an fpv truck now :)
    Both videos cool, but that tow truck video has a 10 out of 10 on the cool factor there for sure. :)

    I watched it and I didn't quite get it! (That happens more since my two strokes!). I get it that another RC ground craft, pulled it out. What I don't get is how it relates to quad copters.

    I would go with the commercially available parachute, that is available, now!

    Very cool! I have a partially built rock racer I may need to instal FPV into after seeing that! I wonder if he has a number I can call if I get stuck. LOL :)

    the concept being you send a second quadcopter to fetch the stricken one.
