    why a boat?? ahah, is summer in my country , hot, hot , i thing is perfect for have a bit fun with some friends at beach.. And finaly it's here ! already !! , time to Tuning a boat race!!

    first let me talk a bit about the FT01 1 Racing boat..
    Well, I had never seen one live, if it is true I was looking for information on the internet, but i need to say ,this boat in person looks AMAZING!! much more cool than in the fotos.

    After all, this ship is an evolution of the FT line of Fei-Lun model, being a very affordable price for their boat, the config and components are absolutely cool.

    3 words,, Fast, very fast,, all gas to be even too well controlled in a sea wave. But is funny to drive.

    One thing I love about this set is that it comes absolutely everything you need to start from the first minute to have fun. you just have to buy batteries for the transmiter control (AA batterys) and after a good charge the boat battery, you're ready to play.

    do not worry if I'm talking a lot, at bottom post you can find a summary with all the things that come in the box.

    wen take the boat out of the box for firs time guive me a big surprise, a boat 65cm long which is robust and strong note and with a very Racing sport look .. The control slightly less finished the ship, but then speak better of him.

    The feeling is weighs is more than one kilo (without battery) certainly is light for such a powerful engine of 14V! motor, servo electronics and all the components are protected by a double layer of water approved helmet.

    The infer housing, has 5 points along with a rubber grip to seal. A second trim helmet protects the whole of the water inlet.

    The line of the boat is modern and agresive. Mention this carbon fiber body (painted) fits very successful for this model.

    One thing I take my attention on this boat is that in other cases, if the boat is not in the water does not turn on (for security) Well, this, it does !! once you've connected the battery and turning the station beware of the gas and brake, because activate the propellers at full speed.

    The first time i throw into the water and see the great power of this engine , defnly is not just a toy. after the first 2 minits on the sea, feels really confortables to drive , and is imposible hold the temptation of open full trottle xDD

    like one torpedo!

    It has reverse direction, although to be honest, it's pretty dificult to control in reverse.
    It is a boat that likes to go fast and zig zag. Nervous, an arrow in the water.

    getting first touch conclusion.. this boat is amazing, fast and cheap! - Perfect for start with RC boats with a semipro racing one.

    Now for the more interested readers I will have a look to some more technical details of this black beast.

    Auto Flipping system!
    what is this?? ahah this is a cool thing.
    Well, it's a super useful, if for example after a big jump, the boat has been upside down in the water. Well, with a combination of gas and brake on the remote transmitter, the boat turns around and you can continue surfing.

    what motor is fitted in?
    oook ,, this black beas have one 2822 outrunner carries motor integrated into the hull boat is brushless motor by the way, and as you know, a brushless motor is translated into better performance and less maintenance.
    All the power is transfered to the propeller from a metal transmission, which ensures a strong and steady to the boat's propeller driven.

    Liquid refrigeration system!

    this left me flip a bit ,, cooling liquid motor and ESC is great solution, since the ESC 65A as the engine at extremely high speeds, they generate a lot of heat.
    The system works by sucking water through the tube located at the helm (see foto), the water passes through the tubes, cooling the electronic components and out the side of the boat. Very cool! & loke the real boats.

    It is made of resistant plastic, it is moved by a metal part (guide) that is hooked to a small servo. Beside the possibility of some adjustment in the queue.
    Thanks to the side flaps and the rear metal flaps (all easily adjustable mind) a pretty good boat control is achieved.

    The transmitter:
    This one, in my opinion come with less finish than the boat. yes, makes its function, it is a very basic command of two channels, works in the 2.4GHz frequency and can run more ships together without any interference problem. but i miss a bit more professional controller for it..

    it can control the Raving Boat up to 150M distance with no problems.
    have an on of button , has a calibration helm from the control and also the range of rotation. Gas controls and reverse gear, feels precise, and is easy to control the gas of the boat.

    is fine and precise control provided (perhaps too powerful reverse) guess that will be necessary for self Fplipped funktion.. there are times that to turn aside, it is necessary to increase the speed, otherwise the radius rotation may be wider than desired.

    GoPro camera support

    To record in first person the boat have made this bracket, easily adjustable with electrical tape, I'm thinking the day of the test, and I think I'll also add a small buoy or something to the camera. At least until you confirm 100% that resists boat speeds. Click here to have a closer look.

    Power it with 14,8V !!

    what feeds the beast alive is a 14.8V battery 2200 mah, 30c and S4 model.
    (it come with Carger 4S ready) I think increasing slightly to a stack with more mha, you could gain a little more fun time. Currently with battery 2200, I have come for a walk with the boat, 10 minutes.

    Also , i,m planing to add a second battery in paralel, intalled with a special 3d printed support and joint two of this batteries.

    Conclusions and feelings with my new boat ,,
    It is a good boat to worry more about play than care about maintenance.
    It comes full assembled and ready, perfect for beginners in the RC boat.
    is mantinaince free. Is big & fast also have a really cool look..

    Here I leave the set of pieces that brought me the kit. (click on any one for more detailed spec)
