Dont order any of the Field of View guns that have 1:1 optics... they are not accurate at all.

someone posted one the other day. it looks like a failsafe you just leave it on the car, i think it must have a wire that you put in the cooling head or something and it shows a digital reading. let me see if i can find it real fast

I just picked up this [link=http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_info.php/cPath/1_23_77/products_id/14537]Pro Exotics PE-2[/link] and it seems to be pretty sweet. Haven't actually used it on my RC yet, but have been playing with it. It easily picks up the lit end of a cigarette!

those are not reliable temp readers. You can string up 5 of them and they'll all read differently.
