Add a Camera to Your Remote Control Car

I am interested in computer programming and robotics engineering. I am a true nerd.

Intro: Add a Camera to Your Remote Control Car

 In this instructable I will show you how to add a camera to your remote control car. You can use this as a spy car or just to see the world if you were that small.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

 Materials

remote controlled car

camera 

piece of lego

something that will screw into your cameras tripod mount

Tools

hot glue gun

hot glue

something to put a hole in lego brick

Step 2: The Work

Drill a hole into the lego piece so that the screw can fit through and hot glue it in place. Then once you have done that, you use tons of hot glue to secure it to the top of the car. (sorry for the bad picture)

Step 3: Finishing Up

Screw the camera into place, set it up for video, then record.
Hope you have fun with this!

    You need to set up the camera with a separate receiver or something, look up "How to set up an FPV camera cheap."

    If instead you used a RC truck would it be a good idea be to mount the camera inside behind the windshield concealed?

     Thats a great idea your video might be a little darker because of the tinting, but if you decide to do it post it so I can see it
