I am not a “read the instructions” kind of guy…or proof reading for that matter, I am more of a figure it out with my superior intellect kind of guy. When that fails, I turn to WIFE, ask her to read the instructions and then get the job done.
When the new Dromida FPV (first person viewer) Rally Car showed up at our door steps, I hesitated to open it up, despite the begging of my 9 year old test driver
Don’t get me me wrong, we love pretty much everything Dromida has to offer up when it comes to RC cars. It’s our recommend to everyone who is looking to jump from the RC you buy at a Big Box store to a real RC experience.
These cars are fast, responsive and can take an absolute beating. We have had the same Dromida Buggy for three years and have never had to replace a part, not one. Trust me the 9 year old test driver has done his best to break this thing and it hasn’t happened.
My hesitation about opening the box and setting everything up, was that it looked like a lot of work. FPV, in my mind that means goggles and an app to download and then using your phone in the goggles with the app and then getting all of them to communicate and on and on and on.
I wasn’t up for the many steps it would take to get this puppy running. So it sat, for a week, until the 9 year old test driver opened the box and low and behold, the instructions fell out and a parts list. Which now that he is nine, he read. “Dad, check all of this out, it comes with goggles and a screen!” he squealed with joy and dropped in my lap
Yes, when the kids at Dromida say “ready to run” they are not kidding. Everything we needed to make the Dromida FPV Rally Car run, was in the box and um… ready to run.
Charge the battery, charge the screen, snap in the battery, put the screen in the goggles, turn it all on and boom you are flying down the sidewalk at 30mph with a view from an RC car that is truly ridiculous.
TheDromida FPV Rally Car is clear, has great range and the 9 year old test driver made sure he beat the heck out of it as he drove over bumps, through grass, a massive pile of leaves, dog poop and his little brother. The goggles and the on board camera take you on first person view of the entire thing, poop and all, it was pretty darn cool. WIFE, the little bother, the baby sitter even the neighbor lady all strapped on the goggles and smiled big smiles as they got to experience FPV for the first time.
At $229 it’s pricier than the other Dromida RC trucks and cars, but you are getting so much more and an “affordable” intro. Into the world of FPV, which is amazing.
As we approach the holidays check out the new line of Dromida FPV trucks and cars, the quality and experience will put a smile on your face and it’s a gift that will be used again and again.
