Surprisingly enough um new out. I think it might have even come out today, but i went and got one, and i did what i haven’t done before, because i actually went to a hobby store and bought. It went to my local hobby store, which is sc. Models in stevenage, went down there. A great great guy, great model shop, tudo o que você precisa, i’ll put a link in the description to where i got this from on his website. You would bowl on the website or go down there and see them and they’ll sort you out, they’ll help. You fix your car got all the spares. You should need all the vehicles you need and all the equipment you need brilliant place. Can’T recommend them enough anyway, Eu sou, really unboxing, so it’s a one tenth scale, uh and it’s a buggy. As i say, it’s a buggy version of the phantom um i haven’t opened it let’s open her up and have a look. Oh that’s well packaged guys well packaged i’ve got to fit my own spoiler. Desculpa. What did we get in the box? Bem, first off we’ve got a spoiler. Também na caixa. You get instructions. You get the usual card where you can qr scan to find out about parts and stuff from hbi who are in maverick, and you get three spare survey. Savers. You also get the now standard, uh maverick mtx244 um it’s, not a bad transmitter. As it goes, you can uh flip.
The top up. You’Ve got your trim. You can adjust your throttle, your steering the steering as usual trim adjusters here and here and all you need for this is four air batteries which we’ll get in a second and put in random out. You also get a charger for the supplied nickel metal hydride battery or nimh. The battery is in the car i’m, not going to be using a nickel with a hydride battery for two reasons: one the eight is called, and so they want their battery back and two. The lipo battery or more power more speed and they last longer so my advice to you would be if you can get find this model without a battery. Can you save a bit of money put that towards the lipo in the charger, but even if you buy it like this, i’d still get a light pen charger, but if you’re just buying it for your kids because it’s a cheap car, um they’re 109 pounds with A battery with a charger they’re, a cheap car um. If you’re just going to bike for your kids to bash around the garden of washington park, you probably just run it on the nimh battery and it’ll – be fine let’s get to the business end. Na verdade, don’t stand over there come on in come on in come a bit closer. OKEY, so let’s have a look. Oh, é, looking good guys. Looking good yeah, Eu, like the looks of it it’s very, very streamlined, very aerodynamic.
Quite a low shell we’ve got a hole in the roof. What’S the hole in the roof for well we’ll have a look underneath. So we’ve got oil field shock absorbers longer on the back shorter on the front uh we’ve got. I think these must be the same shock mounts as the phantom and i guess the body posts would go in there. If you had the other body um. The shock absorbers, Eu acho, are different sizes, though um it’s the usual same color as the phantom they’re, stuck with the color scheme. Eu sou.. Sure i quite like the color scheme, the green and gray and black it’s. A good look looks good um front we’ve got yeah the same suspension set up. I mean it’s it’s, the same guys: plastic bottom, plástico, Braços, plástico, oil field, Choques, quatro rodas, drive we’ve, just got dog bones dog bones in there, eles são, not cbd’s or anything um, and my bug bear with these cars both of these cars. Is they don’t? Give you adjustable steering, i know it costs more and they’re trying to keep the cost down, but adjustable. Steering, i just think, is a must. If you look at it, the wheels are ever so slightly out and you’ve got no way of adjusting them. Um yeah! Oh well never mind right. Let’S have a look inside. Shell feels quite strong, quite durable, Ainda, no idea why there’s a hole there, but it’s a good looking shell, é, quite quite flexible, but quite hard on the inside quite hard on the outside.
I think that’ll take a few batches. Bem, if the shock towers will take the bashes to be fair, they could be an issue, but we’ll have to say um other than that it looks exactly the same inside as you’d kind of expect it to look. We’Ve got the maverick element plus nickel micro height nickel metal, hydride battery um it’s only in 1800, guys it’s not going to last you very long and there’s, not a lot of power in it. I’Ll put that with my other part of ones, i’ve never used and i’m going to run this on the 2s live boat, hum há, nothing on the box that says about metal gears or anything like that. I don’t think they’ve got metal gears i’ve not managed to break the gears yet on the uh on the other phantom phantom of the phantom phantom xp on the phantom mxt i’ve not managed to break the gears. Yet so i’ve not had the gearboxes apart to have a look inside um we’ve got a, Eu acho, they’re a 45 amp esc 550 motor 550 brushed motor um. I say they’ve done everything they can to keep the price down and you guys pet them. Por isso. Realmente, you know they’re trying to make a cheap, a cheap car there’s a cheap buggy. You don’t, you don’t, get that many cheap buggies that i’ve seen um but um. I think it looks nice um framing the tires i mean the tires are quite soft, but their buggy tire is not designed to be shock impact or anything.
But if anyone’s wondering what it looks like next to an xt here, we have my phantom xt, as you can see exactly: okay same color scheme, actually that’s, quite cool 112 Modelos, the same color scheme. If we take the body off the phantom, i think we’re going to find it’s exactly the same yeah. So you can clearly see there it’s the same chassis um i haven’t got a. I haven’t got a heatsink on this one, but never mind, but so yeah it’s. The same chassis, you always got different they’re different arms let’s have a look i’d expect them to be thinner. Bem, Sim, so it’s got different, different suspension. armas. Look at the two, these bolt on the back of the suspension arms the shock absorbers, where the shock absorbers bolt into the little grooves on that one and the front at the front is the same suspension arms, but they are shorter. You’D expect it to be sure. É., a buggy um get rid of the xt, but uh other than that it looks pretty cool. So what we’ll do we’ll get a battery charged up and we’ll? Give it a go? Um just have some power there just to turn it on uh transmitter on first battery in power on that’s, not a bad. I think it’s a 15 15 kilogram survey it’s pretty quick it’s not got the fastest return in the world, but it does work and uh Music. It seems pretty quick, Você sabe: OKEY, Bem, vamos.
Take it out i’m not going to be able to go on the field of speed today, because there’s a qriket match on um, and they get a bit antsy when we’re running cars around on the cricket pitch when they’re trying to catch the balls that’s. What she said um, so what i’ll do is i’ll get the 2s battery up. Put the speed meter on we’ll. Take it out on the road see if i can get they’re, not amazingly fast i’ll see if i can get max speed out on the road, and at least i can give you some idea of the speed i’ll see you in a sec, okay guys here we Are we’re not on the field of speed we’re? All we are but we’re on the other end of it there’s a little bit of grass here. The grass is a bit too long to do a proper speed test, but i just wanted to give you a bit of a bit of footage of it running um. It looks pretty cool got a spoiler on now, as you would have seen from the previous montage um, and it looks alright to be fair but it’s not going to mess around too much it’s getting a bit late got the speed meter up got some satellites we’re Going to track it we’re going to start it it’s registering. Can i drive one handed Music? My point now we are using the nickel metal hydride battery because i forgot these cars come with a tamina tamiya connector on and i don’t have any tamiya connectors on my um on my lipos.
So this is the this. Is the supplied nimh um on the maverick xt? We got 19 miles an hour on the nimh. This should, in theory, be a bit slower because it’s um got smaller wheels, but i think we’re gon na get much more than that. So let’s get in. Have a look, stop read 16 miles an hour well! Bem! The grass is longer here. Um and the car’s got smaller wheels and it’s running on a not fully charged nickel metal hydride, but it gives you an idea you’re going to get 16. I guess probably 19 milhas por hora, maybe a little bit more of a lipo on the lipo on the xt. We got two 21 miles an hour and i’d imagine. This would be somewhere near the same um i’ll get this out of the weekend with the lipo and we’ll do another video. But for now this is just a bit of a so that’s it for this one guys um that’s, the maverick phantom xb uh, just an unboxing and have a look. It looks like a nice little car i’m. Quite impressed really um. Is it the best bargain buggy? The best bargain buggy money can buy. Is it the best bargain bloody money you can buy? Eu não sei: if do a comparison test, get something else to see which one is better. I’Ve got another one coming uh one. We all know well uh a certain wl toys. 104001 again.
Another rubbish name anyone’s got a name. What i should call that car we’ve got dave we’ve got brian. What should we call the 104001 when it arrives when it arrives it’s roughly the same price as this? So we’ll do a bit of a comparison, let’s see which is better, but until then, if you like this video give me a subscribe hit.
