Default On-Board camera , 8IGHT-T 1.0

Last weekend my son put his new RCHERO GOPRO camera on his Losi 8IGHT-T during the A-Main race at Rise RC Raceway in Canby Oregon. It is beyond cool!. The camera fell off about 8 minutes into the race and one of the marshallers picked it up and continued to film. See for yourselves. I'm not too sure how to embed videos so here's the link to youtube.

His name is BLYZZARD21. There are lots of other videos of us bashing with our Nitro rustlers too while you are there.
Enjoy

Awesome video! Love all that flying dirt

I've been experimenting with mounting multiple cameras on my real cars but, somehow, I don't think the results are nearly as exciting...

Dude, back off on that straight after the front stretch. I forgot to count but just how many times did you roll end over end on that jump? Hahaha, just busting your chops. Really nice vid

Nice man, that was cool to watch. It's cool to see your suspension absorbing all those bumps and watching you fly through the air on the jumps.
