Default Onboard video at the track

Here is some footage I took with a camcorder mounted on my brushless Kyosho ST-RR. I was early and there were only a couple of Jammin CRT.5's out on the track. So I just followed them around for a while, it worked out well, I didn't want to go full throttle because I was worried the camera would fly off, so 1/2 to 3/4 throttle and rolling over the jumps was all I needed to keep up with the CRT.5's. Kind of jumpy video, so if you get motion sickness be warned.

It is actually an old point and shoot camera I borrowed from my wife. I strapped it to the front shock tower using some scrap foam and velcro straps. I think the camera is a Sony DM1.

Fantastic video....even though it nearly made me sick (you did warn us!) I liked it enough to watch it twice.

Cool as hell video. I did something like that a few year ago with a $50 spy cam and a t4. Spy cam is small enough to hide between shock tower. I just wish I had hooked it to the TV with a vcr and recorded the action.
