Description

Details

Here we introduce the 1:9 scale brushless short course RC truck - the Trooper; this has a big brushless motor and 11.1V Li-Polymer battery so it will go unbelievably quickly. The 4WD system with front and rear differentials evenly distributes the massive power to the big wheels making this truck a real tour de force. Although this model is described as 1:9 scale it is as long as some of our 1:8 scale models like the Werewolf so you really are getting a lot of model for your money.

The Trooper RC truck is a high performance, high speed machine. It is fitted with highly efficient heatsink metal motor mounts, as standard to prevent the motor getting too hot when being pushed hard. The Trooper's brushless motor and ESC are a new technology that until recently have only been available as upgrades for normal RC cars. This is because to have a brushless setup not only requires the brushless motor but also a brushless ESC, Li-Polymer battery and special li-polymer charger which are all very expensive and would cost hundreds of pounds. Then came some brushless 1:16 scale models, that due to their smaller size only needed a smaller brushless motor etc so could be priced at a realistic level. The special motor in this model is much quicker than the motors found in other models. Because it is brushless, it also means the motor needs no maintenance and can handle a lot more power being pumped into it. So to take full advantage of that the standard 7.2v Ni-Mh batteries that are found in most RC car kits has been replaced with a very powerful 11.1v lithium battery along with a balanced lithium battery charger which is needed for these special batteries.

The brushless RC Truck comes fully built with everything you need to get going apart from eight normal AA batteries for the radio handset. This is a high spec racing model that at full speed requires some real skill to control it. It is therefore recommended for ages 14+.

Question:

I'am going buy the trooper, the brushless model. How long does the battery last? I know you get around 45 minutes or more out of a petrol rc. Does a higher capacity battery mean a longer runtime? or keep some fully charged spares.

Answers:

  • Posted by Sales 2 on Friday, 29 July 2016

    Battery lasts around 10-15 min

    Yes, higher capacity means longer runtime
