Small, yet perfectly formed the new Comet 1:12 range from FTX is the perect introduction to the fun and excitement of radio controlled off-road cars. Limited budgets and size restrictions will become an afterthought when you reviewthe Comet range. Infact your biggest challenge will be which version to choose from the four different editions available.
Centred on a tried and tested industry standard 2wd chassis platform, the Comet is a hobby grade design at an entry-level price point. Features such as oil filled shock absorbers, ball bearings, double wishbone suspension, bevel geared differential, 3-gear transmission and moulded tub chassis are all inspired by high performance racecars to help provide you with the perfect introduction to r/c cars.
The tub chassis design can accommodate the use of either a rear motor or mid-motor set-up depending on the vehicle. The Truggy, Monster Truck and Desert Buggy all coming factory assembled in mid-motor format, while the buggy arrives as a traditional rear motor set-up. End users can convert the motor placement if they wish at a later date to further expand performance possibilities.
Factory fitted 2.4ghz radio system and 2-in-1 speed control provide easy set-up and drivability from the box once the Li-Ion battery has been charged.
Want to upgrade? The simple moulded tub chassis design can accom-modate standard size steering servos and mini brushless systems easily, providing your Comet with a new injection of performance should you wish to go for it.
So what are you waiting for, get yourself a Comet before it hits!
