This truck doesn't driven a whole lot as I seem to drive the other trucks more, but I went away to the beach for the weekend and thought I would take this one with me. I just bought a couple of Turnigy Action Cameras (GoPro alternatives) and thought I would put together a video. Managed to get a couple of good pics too......

Terrific footage! I really liked the slow motion portions, especially the traction roll! :shock:

For cheap video cameras, they really do an awesome job! 8)

Thanks Jeff! I need to practice to get more and better up close footage and brush up my editing skills, but it is a lot of fun. I also did a short vid of the kids riding their boogy boards down the sand dunes while they were holding a camera each. They loved seeing them selves on tv!

The Turnigy cams are great. I also have a GoPro Hero2, but these are every bit as good at a fraction of the price. The eBay cameras are probably the same, but There were a lot of positive reviews online of the Turnigy cams so I bought those to be safe. I actually bought them to video my 'real' 4wd trips, but now I have a few ideas to use them filming other things.

We all could use more training on getting the close-up's. :wink: I have the Hero 3 with Bluetooth and it is an art getting the right angle and position. I have tried a few times filming in my car on the way home from work for practice. The first time I did, I had it set at burst mod and I had a ton of pictures, not videos and they were upside down. #-o You will have to share a link for the ones you got from HK.
