Spy Maxx

I have "heard" through a rather reliable source that a company is building customized E-Maxx's with one motor (for longer run-time), four batteries, a night vision camera, selling them to the US Army, and they're using these remote control units to explore caves in Afganisthan.

They're using these super powerfull R/C Units...and they can control the Spy Maxx's through over 35ft of solid rock!

i`m up for that idea,if they let my father inlaw control them while inside they would all run out in terror shouting "Mad Mick is here"
would that be a brushless motor as to be quieter and more efficient too

I have no more info than what I already posted. What a great use of the product eh?

Buy some Traxxas stock...you know how Military Contractors rape the military...

They're probably selling those things for like $15,000 each!

I would have high bets on the engine being a brushless.

Hey Retread - cool idea. I can see the military concept as well. We had seen "tossup" drones while I was in which also had a very similar controller to a Futaba6x. Purely recon as well.

I kind of like the concept of a little C-4 while in that same cave. Less Infantry would have to go in ;)

I'm currently working out the contract to supply them with "Forward Advancement Rotational Traction Devices" for only slightly more than they are now paying for the backwards tires.

I guess it is possible you are actually seeing it from behind. But even when I first started with my T Maxx I F'd up and put my tires on all wacked out.

They are backwards, if you look at the picture where it is being followed, you can see the camera on front, and the chevron tires are backwards.
