FeiLun FT011 2.4GHz Brushless RC Racing Boat Review


Large and swift, FeiLun FT011 brushless RC boat is so appealing. It is the awesome shark that can drift on the water in an impressive way. With its moving tail, the water flow will not affect its direction. You do not need to wait for the still water, the cabin is fully protected against water. In case it capsizes, FeiLun FT011 will automatically turn upward. Enjoy racing and the excitement that the RC boat brings to you!

Main Features:
●55km/h high speed with the brushless motor, gives you the amazingly thrilling sailing experience

This Boat EASILY Exceeds 35 to 40 MPH on smooth water, SO if there's anything to warn someone about, it would be make sure you have plenty of room to throw a 4 foot rooster tail

Must use throttle whist turning have now both the Ft011 and FT012. the Ft012 accelerates faster but the Ft011 is faster top speed especially in calm water where it seems to really pick up another gear so to speak, This boat is also better built then the Ft012 and much more water tight
●Water cooling system effectively provides a favorable working environment for the electronics inside

●Automatically corrects deviation. Reach the destination without being affected by the water flow
●Self-righting function - no worry about capsizing. It flips upward after being turned upside down
●Extremely waterproof with the protection of the rubber ring on the edge of the two covers

● Powered by the rechargeable 30C 14.8V 2200mAh FT011 battery
You will want to buy additional batteries.  The boat is very high performance and will run 7-9 minutes at high speed before a recharge is needed.   The run time seems longer but if you run it continuously, after less than 10 minutes you will need to pause for over an hour while the battery charges.   

The boat is very fast on the original 4S battery.  It is so fast it can be difficult to control for all but experienced RC.

Beginners and youngsters will find it easier to control if they use a 3S 2200 mah battery.   However you will need a different charger to charge the 3S batteries.   The one that comes with the boat will only charge 4S batteries.

One of the best design features is the double top cover with extremely well-built locking mechanisms to hold them in Place.

one of its most useful design features is not having to worry about the boat flipping over at the extremely high speeds it will tear through the water.  if you had a wave and jump about five feet out the water and end upside down comma then all you have to do is hold the boat in reverse and hit the throttle and it will flip right back over and you're ready to go again, which most of the top manufacturers do not offer this design feature



Some people feel  that 5-8 minutes run time is not enough when battery charge time is 90 minutes.   You can get longer run time if you us less heavy throttle or us a larger battery.   

Remember these are high performance boats, they are most fun when run fast.   So, plan on having 4-6 batteries charged up and ready to go when you head to the water.
