Radio Controlled 1/10 Scale R/C Drift Car – Flyingfish Review
Buy this car, buy it now!, it truly is that good and i would point anyone in the direction of this if they asked me which to buy!
Really good speed with this car as you'd probably expect if your expecting to be going sideways, according to the internet it has a top speed of 32KM/H to scale, very very fast!
As this car is designed to be all about the handling, the sideways drifting action you'd expect really good handling from it and it certainly delivers, easy to get sideways, great turning circle, although it can be abit difficult to control if your not used to it, or you get the reasonably difficult settings wrong.
This car is more about performance than looks, although you can get alot of different styled plastic moulded bodies to slot right on top with different colours, styles, race cars, trucks, spoiler or no spoiler or even off-roader, under the body it is a much better situation with very real looking chrome alloy wheels, life like suspension, dampers etc etc.
You won't be getting this car cheap, but it is well worth it, alot of fun to just drive, but then you can also spend hour upon hour replacing the various bits, modding everything and anything to create your very own customised high performance RC car exactly how you want it, you'd have to get a real car to get anything better in that department.
• Control Range
with the size of the aerial in the controller you'd expect to get a control range over miles, now this may just be me as I've not seen any complaints from anyone else but the range i got was fairly standard but it was still enough for plenty of fun.
• Battery Usage
a built in 7.2V battery with a plug in charger, and 6 AA batteries in the controller, i don't think I've had anything that last as long as this, I've had a good hour or 2 none stop high energy driving and drifting before it even started to waiver in extremely hot weather, amazing.
Uses 6 AA batteries in the base, very big manly feeling controller that full of gadgets, you can adjust the positioning of the 'trigger', invert the forward and backwards motion and the steering if you'd prefer, you can even adjust the wheel angle of your car if it's pulling to 1 side, or you for whatever reason want to aim a certain direction, and the same with the forwards and backwards direction.
• Over view
I am in love with this car, it is truly amazing the amount of gizmo's you can get, chop and change, the high speed, the amazing drifting, decent enough looks, extra cushioned front end just in-case you crash, and at a reasonable enough price, I'd give it a 5 out of 5 and recommend it to the slightly older from about 15 upwards as it does require quite abit of control and ability but hardcore racers/drifters will love it.
