The world's smallest, wireless on-board video camera for RC vehicles.
The RC HERO™ is the ultimate waterproof, shockproof camera for mounting to your radio controlled car, plane, or boat. Since it's waterproof to 100 feet (30 meters) deep, you could even mount it to your RC Submarine.
A quick release mounting design means its easy to attach your camera to different locations on different models. Several adhesive (removable when needed) mounting baseplates are included. Finally, now you can capture a driver's-seat view from your favorite RC machine, thanks to the RC HERO.
The included polycarbonate housing is as tough as your RC truck...probably tougher. You can jump, flip, roll and crash all you like and capture it on video. Even in the biggest crash, the RC HERO will stay on and keep filming. It incorporates the same real world race-proven engineering of our Motorsports HERO cameras, so you can be sure what works on the big race track is built into your RC HERO for maximum performance and reliability on your backyard race track.
Aim it over the hood for a driver's perspective, or over the rear bumper to see who’s chasing you. Adjustable brackets and self-adhesive bases let you set the camera angle in your car or truck. The RC HERO is also ideal for capturing wave-jumping action with an RC boat; the waterproof housing protects the camera even if submerged.
You can even fly with the RC HERO. Mount the camera in the cockpit or under the fuselage: the camera's 'upside down' mode flips the recorded image for installations that require the camera to be mounted upside down.
Peel-and-stick self-adhesive bases make it easy to install the RC HERO on almost any RC vehicle. Mounting bases are provided for both flat and curved surfaces. Safe on painted surfaces! The camera snaps into the base securely, yet can be removed instantly with its quick-release clamp.
And to top it off, the RC HERO can shoot 5 megapixel photos automatically every second for 3 hours (until the batteries are dead). So it's not just about video...mount the RC HERO to your RC airplane and shoot photos of your house, town, or your friend's plane as you fly in formation.
Get into your RC models like never before...GoPro!
