I'm going to Alaska in a few weeks to film a fly-fishing documentary. We are going with a bunch of GoPro Hero HD cameras and want to hook some of them up to RC trucks and boats to get close up shots of bears and other things. Let it be known I have never been deep into RC car racing beyond casual ownership 15 years ago.
How can I get the smoothest possible ride out of an offroad truck? I watched a bunch of videos filmed from the Traxxas line of electric trucks and the offroad stuff is extremely bumpy. I understand these are small vehicles sensitive to the terrain. What vehicles, customizations, accessories, etc. would provide the smoothest ride? We don't need speed, just looking to be able to film smoothly while moving slowly over rough terrain.
Essentially the same question with regards to RC boats. We are looking at catamaran boats, anyone with experience in this have advice?
