FeiLun FT012 RC-Boat (45 km/h fast) for $89.99 Duty Free
Now that spring is slowly beginning, RC gadget enthusiasts are getting their money’s worth again. So you can get your RC boat on the water again. The FeiLun FT012 RC-Boat is now available for $89.99 at TomTop incl. Duty Free Shipping. You can get it a bit cheaper at AliExpress for $78.99, but without Duty Free Shipping.
The faster FT011 RC-Boot currently costs $99 at AliExpress. Do you want more RC boats like this? If so, do you have any suggestions which boat we should test?
The FeiLun FT011
Is faster automatically better? The FeiLun FT011 can do a full 55 km/h on the water and would be almost too fast to even keep an eye on it. If you are intoxicated by speed, you will still get wet eyes here.

All in all this boat is a different category than the JJRC S1 Pentium tested by us. That brought it up to 25 km/h and was already a lot of fun. The FeiLun surpasses this model in almost all points. With a length of 65 cm it is much bigger, and with a weight of more than one kilo it is also much heavier.
A 14.8 V battery with a capacity of 2200 mAh provides the necessary energy for the (brushless) motor. Nevertheless, the driving time is stated to be “only” five to six minutes, which, however, depends strongly on the speed. The range of the remote control is given as 150 m, and here this distance is probably even necessary.
To give you an idea of the speed: 55 km/h is about 15 m/s, which means that after a few seconds you can’t see the boat going straight out – and it reaches the maximum distance at which the connection breaks off pretty quickly. So the main thing is to make breakneck turns.
If the boat should tip over, it can simply be turned around again by moving the rudder. So you don’t have to jump into the lake to save your boat, unless the battery is running low on the way. To make sure that this doesn’t happen, you should first be warned by an alarm signal in the remote control. In addition, the speedboat is of course waterproof.
From the manufacturer FeiLun there are several racing boats, which differ in size, speed and of course price. The Ft011 is the most expensive, the variants FT009 and FT010 more affordable. For the pool, as shown in the video at GearBest, you really don’t need the FT011. But if you really want to heat up and have the space for it, you will have fun with the fast racing boat. Even if this is only a short fun of five to six minutes.
What do you think? Are you in the mood for such speedboats, and what speed (and what price) do you think is appropriate?To the gadget
