Real Racer - First Person View (FPV) RC Driving Experience

$50,029

Get into the driver’s seat! Drive fast, get reckless, and unleash your inner child with this hobby-kit quality, FPV RC Racing Car.

When it comes to FPV RC cars in today’s market, the gap is very open. Often, you’re stuck choosing between cheap and low-end or expensive and overly complex FPV RC cars. 

Real Racer bridges the gap between the two and offers a quality FPV RC experience at a consumer-friendly price point

With Real Racer, you can be sure that you’ll be getting the best of both worlds - the quality you deserve with the price tag you want.

Explore and race your friends in a completely new perspective.

Shrink yourself and become a “mini” racer. Turn old and familiar places into your new and exciting racetrack!

Real Racer truly is plug and play with old school simple RC control. Just turn it on, connect your phone, and race! No complicated setup or know-how needed.

Enjoy a High Definition (720p) low latency stream for every race.

With direct Wi-Fi connection from car to phone, you can see every turn, jump, dive, and every crash all from the point of view of your Real Racer.

Win the race with a car that represents you. With interchangeable body shells, you can have a car that is better suited for you

 You can even create your own custom design with the blank body shells.

Record your races and share them with your family and friends. View your house from a whole other perspective. Capture every turn, jump, flip, and win with the high definition 720p FPV camera using your smartphone.

Share the action by saving your races directly to your smartphone or insert an SD Card directly into your Real Racer and capture every moment.

We wanted to make sure that every driver can have an amazing racing experience. That’s why we’ve equipped the Real Racer with the ability to race at speeds of up to 20 km/h (12.4 mph) and at a distance range of up to 30 meters (98.4 feet).

Now you can start your race from the kitchen and finish it up in the front yard all while relaxing on the sofa.

With 4-wheel drive and fully independent suspension, don’t hesitate to race on even the gnarliest of racetracks. From carpet to marble - you can confidently own the race.

When we say that there is no other car like this on the market, we mean it. No other racing car on the market can provide the same level of performance in the same affordable price bracket. With the Real Racer, you get the quality you deserve without the guilt of a heavy price tag.

Our vision for the Real Racer is to create a fun quality product that not only takes us back to childhood but also allows us to experience the world from an entirely new perspective.  A lot of us are still kids at heart and often we don’t make enough time to express that side of ourselves. This is why we designed the Real Racer. We want everyone, regardless of age, to take a break, sit back, and have some old school fun with a modern twist.

Martyn Kay – CTO & Co-founder

Martyn has a 12-year history of consumer product development, most recently in a senior role with a multinational toy company. This is where he caught the FPV bug, and upon leaving decided to see what other vehicles it would be fun to stick a camera in – and so Real Racer was born!

Kenneth Tam – Managing Director & Co-founder

Kenneth is a driven Hong Kong businessman with over 15 years’ experience in starting and managing SMEs and MNCs and bringing volume consumer products to market. Recent successes include the CEL Power8Workshop and the CEL Robox 3D printer.

A special mention to all our contract designers, developers, creatives, and manufacturing partners who are essential in making Real Racer a reality – you know who you are, and we couldn’t do it without you!

Our team has worked very hard on this project for well over a year. As we near the final stages of development, we’re incredibly excited to get the Kobotix Real Racer into your hands. Back us today and help us take the final step of getting the Kobotix Real Racer to market and putting you in the driver’s seat.

Risks and challenges

We have worked extremely hard on this product for Kickstarter and full-scale manufacturing and fulfillment, but here are what we see as the risks and our plan to assess them:

MANUFACTURING: The manufacturer is lined up, and we have quality assurance people on site during production.

FULFILLMENT: Sometimes things get a bit crazy and stuff happens that can’t be planned for: a supplier misses a deadline, customs clearance or a shipment gets lost. Those things could cause a delay. We are using an experienced logistics team get our products to you. We’ll keep open and honest communication with you through our process so you know where your product is and when it’s going to get to you.
