So what am i doing in the middle of a field sitting on a box? Goed, Eigenlijk, our country is now a level four locked down, so we thought the safest thing to do is to come visit the great british countryside and do an unboxing don’t know many people that have done that we’re, the first anyway i’m sitting on a box. What is inside this box let’s take a look right, so here it is the comet. So here is the ftx comet two wheel, Station 112 Schaal. Buggy reminds me very much of the team associated rc10 from back in the day, um anyway. Look here it is lovely, lovely little car fully ball. Racer uh wheels there by the look of things. Uh we’ve got oilfield shops, wat goed is. We have also got here. We have got a three kilogram survey, which should give it more than enough steering on there. We have also got ftx’s one of these, which is their speed, controller and receiver combos, which have been really good um in the past for us and worked well so yeah. All in all looks like a really really good car. A lot of plastic here, which is never a bad thing, because plastic tends to flex doesn’t break in my opinion, i’m looking at the rear wheels here, and they are actually ball raced as well. We’Ve got a little motor up here. Little brush 380 motor up there um to give it this power okay.
So why are we doing this well there’s, a good reason why we’re doing this and buying into these they come ready to run straight out of the box battery handset and charger. Now our local hobby store is thunder models and they are going to run a race event with these cars. A race series with these cars come straight out of the box and they’re standard in the shop, and we are carl – and i are well up for that. Now there is one thing: batteries carl: this is the battery department. Here carl is going to talk to you a bit about the batteries and what we have so over to the studio to you. Goed, thank you very much mark that was a very cool little review out on the field so back in the studio. This is my uh ftx comet um and, as i say, i am super impressed with this little car i’ve been messing around with it and having a little play, and i think, bearing in mind we’re gon na be running this indoors. The car is gon na hold up very nicely, Maar, as mark said, let’s talk a little bit about batteries, so this car comes with a 6.4 volt battery, which has this very odd, looking black adapter for charging. If you compare it to this battery, which comes out of the ftx ravine, it has a much more familiar plug there, which you can charge from now.
I have been a little bit sneaky and i have put the ravine battery into the comet and it fits perfectly into the compartment. So although they have different charging points, they both actually attach to the car using the mini tamilia connector. So what i want to show you now is this cracking little charger super easy to use now um. This is a little quick unboxing to show you what you get. You get your charger which, as i say, super simple super easy inside you get a pamphlet. Give you some instructions and a plug now um. These are being sold as thunder models at cracking price, which is anyone. That’S got the ftx ravine. This would be a superb charger to get you away from the usb chargers. Now the typical charge on the usb charger is a couple of hours, whereas this i charged yesterday a battery and it went from 25 Aan 100 in as little as half an hour to 40 Minuten, simply plug the battery into the charger like so and now. Zoals je zien, it’s flashing to say that it’s 25 charge and it’s charging up to 50 um couldn’t be simpler. It lets you know exactly how much charge is in the battery. This is why running a comet on the ravine batteries would be a much better idea. Not only can we get away from using the usb chargers, which do take a long time, you’re also going to get some additional power, and this is going to be transferred into speed on the track now.
The current footage you’ve seen is the 6.4 and now Music. This car here is running the 7.2. It is much much quicker and on an indoor track which will be running at sunderland models. This is more than fast enough, so um get yourself.
