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.

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.

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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
