Introduction: HOW TO MAKE a Simple RC SPY ROBOT

In this instructable , i'm gonna show you how to make an rc spy robot which is controled by an rc car controller. this robots can bring you videos and audios off the place where he is because of the spy cam !!
BUT the bad thing is THE distance , it depende off the spy cam and the car  .

SO good luck !!

Step 1: SUPPLIES:

For this project you will need a:
_A wirless spy cam.
_An rc car.

_A television( DUH!! for the spy cam)
_some cardboars(optional, to give the robot form)
 

Step 2: THE SIMPLE WAY

Now all you have to do is to tape the spy cam to the rc car like in the picture.
 

Step 3: THE COOLER WAY ;-)

After finishing my spy robot , i wondered to make it more cool looking :-D.
so you have to cut  the cardboard in  the way that it look like a robot head
and put the spy cam lens as a nose for your robot(see the picture)
for the eyes you can but some LEDs and the mouth you can simply draw it.
and the body is a cardboard box.

Step 4: THE FINAL ROBOT!!!

the final result should look like in the picture

Just found this for me and my 5-year-old boy to try... can't we just use a cell phone and ipad with facetime? Has anyone tried that? (removable , of course)

I got that Spy Gear Tracker or whatever its called a while ago. It's basically this, but isn't made of cardboard and costs more. And has treads, and feeds audio and video to the controller. But its like $100.

Typically it's just like the RCXD from call of duty black ops?

i've choose the cardboard because you can get it for free , the cost of my project was about 30$ :
_the remote controlled car was for about 10$ (not sure because i had it for a long time)
_the wirless camera for 20$ ( it transmit audio and colored video )

Cool! if you were able to mount a little lcd screen on the controller which can wirelessley stream fromt he camera that would be awsome!
