RC 4x4 with a wifi Camera.


Recommended Posts

Has anyone used or has  a RC 4x4 or tank with a wifi Camera.. I want to use one to check under the house to chase out hiding snakes. So looking for suggestions to buy. We have pets so I need to be sure they moved on when we get one, like today. I chased  3.5ft brown snake but it got away under the house.

Snake catcher, preferably a relo so it can become a love job. 😄

Go Pro for the camera. 2nd hand from a hock shop unless your out the back of buggery. 😡

Last go, 100mm plastic water pipe with an end cap fitted and slide an open small can of cat food down inside. Lay it on the ground and wait. Go out and quickly put on the other end cap and shake it. You'll feel the weight of the snake when you have him.

Warning, don't be a hero and try sneaking a look before putting the end cap on. They can turn around in that sized pipe. 😜

Yer I'm aware of your son's abilities and thought there must be some reason he couldn't do the job. Smack a sledge hammer on the ground a couple of times and that seems to keep them away but is always good to see them move from the house.

 Speaking of snakes, drove to the farm the other day to drop the Pagero off as it is now a farm only car and on the road in saw a tiapan coiled up on the road. Had my son following and he saw the snake strike at the Pagero wheels as I went over it.

Neighbour told me a couple of weeks ago she went to a friends and they were sitting out in chairs on the verandah around the farmhouse. Been there for a while before her friend said move slowly out of the chair and walk towards her. There was a brown snake coiled up in the pot plant behind about 1/2 meter away.

Been relatively lucky with snakes around our farmhouse but our house is built on a concrete slab and the water tanks are sitting on the ground so no where they can hide.

The slab and putting the tanks on the ground was advice the locals told us before I built the house. Everyone with a house off the ground always has the steps closed in so a snake can't strike your ankles something I've been told they like to do.

You could use some fpv gear, if you want. VTX and goggles. You could get something cheap from aliexpress and fix it to an RC. I was going to do this for fun, but the stuff I would enjoy would likely make me motion sick.

Snakes wont waste venom on a strike unless it has no choice. Without venom they can't hunt or eat, so it's a precious commodity to them. One reason they rare up and hiss at you first, a warning, if you don't take the hint and back off then they will strike if they have no way out of the situation.

Don't have a digital camera that takes video or even a phone?. Strap it to a plank of wood and slide it under. Not a fan of snakes I'm afraid and wondering what impact the recent mouse plague up here will have on snake numbers this year and next year.

Last thing I want is snake number plagueing but I suspect that may be the case.
