Description

The FT012 is a high speed V-hull racing boat that is superfast, fun and easy to operate and transport. If you capsize during high speed manoeuvres do not fear the FT012 has a built in self-righting function, just apply the throttle and the hull will flip straight back over.

All out full speed power runs and sharp banked turns on your favorite waterway are a blast, the FT012 has a top speed of 45km/h and is a ton of fun all packed into a 470mm sized hull.

Being completely ready to run, the FT012 is great for both beginners and experienced racers alike and would make an ideal race boat for novices wanting to get into electric RC boat racing.

The FT012 speed boat is powered by an 11.1v 1800mAH LiPoly battery which really packs a punch with the pre-installed brushless power system. The RTR package is supplied complete with a 2.4Ghz pistol grip transmitter and built-in receiver which offers interference free running.

Un super bateau pour débutant , il va vite trés vite tout le monde est surpris de sa vitesse a 72€ port compris grace a un bon de reduction c est une super affaire, un peut d eau rentre dans le bateau mais il y a un plug en caoutchouc pour le vider de temps en temps donc méme pas besoin d ouvrir sur un lac avec du clapotit il vole de vague en vagues et parfois plonge pour réaparaitre 4s plus tard la 1er fois on retiens sa réspiration lol.
Autonomie d environ 10mn il faut prévoir de la batterie suplémentaire pour faire plusieurs runs.

Are there any spare parts? After two hours of running her the transmission parts between motor and steel tube exploded in the meaning of the words. Seems to be bad steel. Happend on my boat and a friend of our club had the same. Now were looking for the transmission parts, new motor and a new steel tube. Theres no european shops to buy these things.
The boat is fun but to much money for 2 hours of fun.

Perfect little speedboat for the price! Very reliable (10 packs) although last time the boat stopped in the middle of the lake for no apparent reason, I suspected a binding issue... 5 min later everything was ok again... Battery tray of TX is badly designed, need some plastic removal so as the poles of the 6 AA batteries make good contact. This could somehow explain my RX-TX issue explained above. One of the 4 white rotating plastic tabs of the inner plastic seal cover was missing on mine, so I got quite a bit of water on the maiden run - chinese quality control awww!! I got a spare inner cover on a chinese wholesaler website as HK doesn't have any replacement listed. Make sure the aftermarket battery you put in has a decent C rating, got the impression this eats around 25-30A peak. 3rd cell of the stock battery is approx 0.3 volts lower than the 2 others after running, but balances fine for charging.

Got that boat since last week from EU Whs, It's quite nice for the price.
The stock battery does the job nicely, but the battery tray also allows my 3S 2200 mah NANOTECH 25-50C to fit in nicely without any problem.
The fins do a perfect job and it's very difficult to turn the boat upside down on flat water
You can easily find tuning parts for this boat, especially to replace the stock plastic rudder with an aluminium one including water intake, but the stock plastic one does the job even if it lacks precision compared to the one that is stock on the aquaholic, relentless or scott free.
Great point ; I can this boat share with my 5 years old sun as the inclued remote is really adapted. Range is surprisingly good (I couldn't loose transmission further than 200M.. but had then problems to see the boat correctly !)

Tout simplement une bombe!!!
S'il se retourne sur le dos (ce qui est trs difficile car il est trs stable), faire une marche arrire fond d'1/2 secondes puis de suite une marche avant fond et se remet tout seul dans le bon sens.
Ne pas laisser des enfants sans surveillance par il va vraiment trs vite et l'hlice n'est pas protge.
Lorsque l'accu est dcharg, il rduit automatiquement la vitesse pour le ramener.
