That means you'll need a vehicle with enough room to add your transmitter and its power source and a good and secure mounting location for your camera. You'll need to keep the CG as low as possible to avoid rollovers. Since you're driving slow, you can make do with a brushed motor. I would go with a high turn, sensored brushless motor though. It'll offer exceptional low speed performance. You'll also need tires big enough to handle obstacles.

These requirements point to a 1:8 scale vehicle but they turn out to be expensive. What budget are you on?

You can try a monster truck of some kind but you'll need to make sure the CG is low enough. Take a look at the Chinese brands.

I mean something like Exceed or Himoto. These are the only ones that'll fit in your budget and will have some of the characteristics desirable in your intended application.

They're "off-brands". You probably won't find a dealer in India.

One can but will need some skill, equipment, and time to make it happen. Check out Anjan Babu's build. It's a great example of a scratch built RC car.
