Tut mir Leid, zwei Sekunden hallo, oh hi, es ist in oh fantastisch, i'll, genau dort sein, brillant, das war sc Modelle. My armor vortex is in let’s, go Applause, Applaus, Applaus, Musikapplaus, and we got it, and here we have it: Oh ja, something a bit different, never had an armor on the channel before so be interesting to see how i get on with this now. This is the brand new horizon hobbies. Vortex four wheel drive 3s blx. Now this is something totally different for me, so be interesting to see how i get on with it and what i think of it now just before we crack on. I just want to say a massive thank you to sc models who have sponsored rc kicks today and been able to get this on the show for you so go check them out very friendly and loads of stock right. Should we open it up and have a look yeah? Oh, schau! How much space i have! The new studio fits right, so that’s what it looks like when you get it so i’m guessing this is the transmitter, receiver and uh yeah right. So you just lift this off yeah, okay and there we have it here’s the transmitter actually that’s, ziemlich gut. That feels quite nice, but we’ll check it out in a sec. And what else do we get uh manual and stuff like that? And that is pretty much all you get in the box, so there you go a good looking truck and i love the colors yeah right.
Let's, do a montage for you, Musik, so let’s take a look inside and see what you get for your money now layout wise. It all looks very professional and i must admit i do like a bit of the orange. It does look quite nice and it’s all folded away really nicely. The connectors for the servo are actually a black gray and an orange as well, which is a bit different to the standard, and you get the power button and the reset button orange as well and they’ve kind of blinged up the electronic speed controller. With some fancy heat sinks on the side all looks quite nice, so you’ve got a 3660 3200 Kv. Brushless motor comes with a nice heat sink and fan, so that should keep it nice and cool as well premium. Looking stuff uh, it doesn’t look cheap in any way whatsoever. The esc is a hundred amp two to three s and the servo that comes in it is a spectrum spm spm, 5651 Das heißt, a metal gear servo, where you kind of expect that another buggy this size and this power, 7.27 kg and that’s at 6 Volt. Now the spectrum dx3 smart controller, which you have here, ich muss sagen,, ich bin, really impressed with it quality wise feels really. Nice has packed with additional features, but the one that i really like it’s so simple. Is this one at the bottom here and it just says, throttle limited to 50 75.
100.. I love that because, when you’re driving it lots of people want to have a go of it and things like that and if you’ve got children you could just flick the switch you don’t have to go into the settings of the gui and find it and turn It off you just flick the switch and it’s good to go. I really like that also the battery. If you’re using the smart system, it will actually give you the battery level as you’re driving it love it really nice. You can see how much time you got left and the receiver is a sr 6200a um. I haven’t opened it up, so i haven’t had a look at it to see what kind of size it is or anything, but it sits in its own waterproof uh connect box underneath the esc, all waterproof, so we’re told now you can download an app that works With this smart system and that’s called spectrum dashboard that’s all google play and you can get it on apple as well. I will upgrade to the smart batteries bit expensive, Aber, Ja, i do like the technology. I like the way that the smart batteries look after themselves. A little bit more and when you plug them in you, don’t have to set them up that’s more laziness than anything, but i do like the way. If you charge them up, they will discharge down to a storage rate instead of you having to do it, which i kind of like as well but prices they are expensive.
Now you can pick up one of these for like 48 Pfund, but the pretty much identical battery that’s smart is about 75 Pfund, but they do do a bundle which is the one i would recommend and the one i will get when funds allow and that’s the Spectrum, schlau, powerage bundle, that’s part number spm. Xp531. I think it is always s31 and you can get those for 99 Pfund 74 and you get three things in those you get the uh, 500 5000 Milliamp-Batterie. You get the charger and you get a ic3 to ic5, cable adapter. Now the charger you get is a one times: 50 watt, so it’s quite small and it’s the uh s150 or 5 150. Ich denke, es ist, the s150 i’ll put a picture up here. What it looks like it’s, a tiny little thing about so, but it gets you going. You know ideally you’d like to spend a bit more and get a different one, but i have lots of charges anyway, so i can kind of use those and i don’t really mind setting the s and the size and the volts and things like that. I’Ve been doing it for ages anyway, so it doesn’t really bother me on that front. But really i like the telemetry and the way it will connect to the app and stuff like that, so dass das. Why i don’t really want to just cut this off and put a dean’s connector on here also it’ll warrant, the uh it’ll avoid the warranty from a quality point of view.
Now that i’ve been looking at it and sort of messing around with it i’ve had it for 24 Stunden. Now i like the quality, the quality is really there. The only thing if i was picky is i don’t, like the tops of these um shocks. They look a bit nap, these red bits a little bit cheesy a little bit but i’d be nice to see some metal shocks on here. But obviously the price point that this truck is at is very competitive and i have to say, Ich denke, that you’re getting a lot with good quality, electronics and stuff like that, for your money versus some competitors right so there’s enough waffle and tech stuff. Für dich. What i’m gon na do now is i’m, just gon na basically reinforce the front section, the sides and the back of this let’s crack on and get that done: Musik, Musik, so Applaus, Musik, Applaus, Musik rechts, we are all set. I finally got the battery yeah not too fast, but i think it’d be okay. I will be upgrading the steering servo in this for sure. Let’S have a look yeah, ziemlich schnell, pretty noisy right, let es, take it out and give it a Music bash, so Musik, Musik. Also, Musik, Musik, so Musik, Musikapplaus, so Musik, Oops, Musik, three Applause, Musik, Applaus, Musik, er ist, Applaus, Applaus, so Applaus, Musik, Applaus, Musik, Applaus, Äh, Applaus, Applaus, so Musik. So there you go that’s a first look at the vortex from armor.
What did i think pretty happy with it? Quality seems to be there, der Sender, receiver and the electronics that you get in it pretty happy the servo isn’t super fast, but it seems to get the job done and being that you’re normally pulling more wheelies steering isn’t. Really an option, Aber ja, i uh so far i’m very pleased with what i’ve got now. Who would i recommend this to? I would say it: wouldn’t, be someone who’s, just trying to get into rc and looking for a ready to run it’s a bit hardcore to just step into rc straight into one of these you’re a braver person than me now. I reckon something like this would suit someone who had a wl toys and been playing with that and boosting it up and then wants to take the next level or something like the rocket dbx 10. If you’ve been messing around with this kind of thing – and you want to spend a bit more and you’ve saved up and you’ve got your budget, but you don’t have an unlimited budget. This could be a really good place to start to put your money to get your best bang for buck, but obviously from a mainstream supplier.
