Thumbs up Race real RC with a 30 mile range:) You gotta see this!

I thought you all would get a kick out of this.

Check out this project that one of our customers is working on for Intel. It is running our MaxAmps 10000 packs

Here is the email I just received:

Hi Austin,

My father, Jack Alten, said you wanted pictures of your 10,000mah LiPOs in the conversion we did for Intel. Each of the six Kyosho Inferno GTs we converted had the radio and engine removed and had the following components installed:

- Fujitsu 1610 Ultra Mobile PC
- Logitech webcam
- Pololu USB servo controller
- Castle Mamba Max speed controller
- Mega Motor ACn 22/30/2 F
- Maxamps 10000 mah LiPO

The cars will be controlled remotely from a PC with a steering wheel over the WiMAX wireless network. Here in Hillsboro, the range is about 30 miles.

I would have put it in a monster struck. That way you can go over rough terrain and not worry about driving 20 miles out fetching an overturned/stuck radio controlled carputer.
