Nice video Oztruck.....very realistic, like having your head glued to an old 1 x 6 inch periscope head bouncing across the field, although this looks like a German driver's view. With a system like this, one can appreciate the tank crew's restrictions and also account for so many bent or missing track guards (fenders). What is needed is a seperate cam for the TC to iliminate the helicopter pilot's view and cheating ("haha I see you but you can't shoot me now ") on the RC battlefield.
This would require communication between freindly tank crews as to enemy location & tactics and subsequently rely on skill & practice as opposed to jumping out for a lucky fan shot then skooting back behind a hill or building and watch your enemy movements from above. It would absolutely change some persective on TC tank operation and add a lot of realism. Not cool at all to round a corner and be looking at an enemy tank muzzle. Tank sections communicating and working as a team can prevent that, but it requires a separation of the individual ego and working as a unified team. What would be needed then is the temperature, noise and fume smells. Let the Japanese work on it a while...it will be eventually here.
I have seen James' Kubelwagen and tank with minicam at Danville and it runs really neat. That little Kubelwagen with camera is a wicked recon vehicle and fast. [>:]
