FTX Vantage 1/10 4WD Brushless Buggy RTR Waterproof FTX5532

Now features waterproof electronics!

Get ready for some serious off road buggy action with the Brushless Edition FTX Vantage. Taking RTR styling to a competition level, the Vantage brushless boasts some amazing features for the ultimate ‘Ready-to-Run' experience.

Etronix provide crystal free 2.4ghz control. In addition the Etronix Photon 2.1 waterproof sensorless brushless system is installed to provide some low maintenance, high performance speed and power.

Instead of using a NiMh battery, FTX decided to include a Voltz hardcase LiPo battery to get the very best from the Photon system, but with safety

With this in-mind included is a balance charger and LiPo charge sack. Infact all you need to add is AA batteries for the transmitter.

The 4wd shaft drivetrain features metal diff gears and front universal driveshafts, while an integrated slipper helps protect the drive from possible damage. With adjustable turnbuckles all round and large bore oil filled shock absorbers the Vantage is raring to go.

In addition if you want to tune and upgrade your Vantage, FTX provide a wide range of carbon and aluminium upgrades that will bring your ride up to a whole new pro level.

Excellent buggy at a superb price for what you get. I bought this model as an upgrade from my ACME Firefox 1/16 scale and I have not been disappointed. The build is excellent, very sturdy and will take a good bit of knocking around. Speed is fantastic and the handling is total quality. I spoke to a guy at Modelsport before I purchased it and his help was first class, knew exactly what I needed to know. Top model, top advice and fantastic price. BUY IT!!!

Out of the box this is a very nice looking 1/10th buggy. how ever I got to my SDRCC club and from the start the motor or speed controler seamed to bog down. It's like the signel from the controller is not getting to the motor! Will call to see is can get this replaced.
