Introducing the 5G FPV RC System, officially known as the CloudRC AdvenX3 Cockpit Motion Chair 6DOF Racing Online System. I know. It’s a mouthful but so is what it has to offer. This rig is the RC enthusiast’s dream come true, or as I like to call it, the “couch potato’s epic racing adventure.”
Picture this: You’re lounging comfortably in your living room, controlling your favorite RC car from afar, all thanks to the magic of 4G/5G technology. This isn’t your average remote control setup, by the way; it’s more like a motion-capable driving simulator, minus the traffic jams and speeding tickets. OK. That’s an exaggeration. Please do not drive this thing onto any roads made for actual vehicles.
As the name suggests, it boasts six degrees of freedom, which basically means it can move in all the directions you’d want it to – or maybe even a few you didn’t know you wanted. This is crucial because it leads us to the most mind-blowing feature of this contraption.
You see, your trusty RC car will be equipped with a sensor unit that’s out there on the field, collecting all sorts of data. Inclination? Check. Tilt? Check. And a bunch of other “whatnot” that your RC car is experiencing on the ground. Then, like magic (or science, but let’s stick with magic), it sends all that data soaring through the airwaves to your CloudRC 4G/5G FPV RC System. And what do you get? You get to experience all that inclination, tilt, and “whatnot” firsthand. It’s like you’re there in the driver’s seat but without the risk of getting stuck in traffic or swerving to avoid potholes. Again, do not, I repeat, do not get this thing onto real roads that have real vehicles zipping across like Traction Cities in Mortal Engines.
Now, here’s where it gets even cooler (if that’s even possible). You’re not just squinting at a tiny screen; no, sir! You’re treated to a massive ultra-wide display made up of not one, not two, but three displays! It’s like having the best seats in the house at the RC car race of your dreams.
You can choose from a variety of RC car models, from the chill crawlers to the speed demons of the racing world. Whether you’re cruising at a leisurely 10 km/h (6.2 mph) or going warp speed at over 100 km/h (62 mph), this setup’s got you covered. Just keep in mind that the motion algorithm needs a little customization to match your car and track – because even technology needs a personal touch sometimes.
Now, here’s the kicker: I’ve been following CloudRC on Chinese TikTok for a while, and I never realized they actually sell this system outside of China. It’s like discovering your favorite local food truck now delivers worldwide. But, and this is a big but (not like Kardashian-level big, but close), it doesn’t come cheap. Brace yourselves, folks. CloudRC’s website lists this epic setup at a grand US$18,000. And that’s the discounted price, by the way. The regular price? A whopping US$30,000. And that’s not even counting the shipping fee, which can set you back an additional US$1,500 or possibly more. Oh, and don’t forget about the possibility of import taxes and other surprises.
So there you have it, the CloudRC AdvenX3: your golden ticket to an RC racing adventure from the comfort of your home. It might cost a pretty penny, but it’s the closest thing to living out your RC car fantasies without leaving your comfy couch. Just remember, dreams really do come true – as long as you’re willing to pay the price!
