009

I just went to u-tube and watched the Double Horse Century 7004. Now that has potential beyond the 009 by a long shot. Maybe won't self right but tipping will be slim or none. Now that would be FUN to build with a single motor with dual lipos with a 2030 UL-1 motor or a 3674-2200 motor and a 180 amp esc or a 120 t model. The + side is room to work and I would tape down the hatch. I have a Villian EX with a UL-1 motor on 3S and moves fast enough for me. You could do a search on this site on the DH

Some family fun running our FT009s. Two boats and a few crashes. Action starts around the 2:00 mark.
All stock at this time.

Nice. These boats are fun as heck. I got my wife and 6 year old girl fighting to use the FT009. LOL Now I gotta get another one so everybody has their own boat. The FT009 was suppose to be my rescue boat and now I opened up pandora's box! I'm thinking the Double Horse for my 6 year old as its only like $29.

There's supposedly a 18" Double Horse for $32 on Amazon called the Banox Extreme.Im thinking about ordering one for its hull, rudder, etc to build a brushless boat larger then my ft007 but I'm a bit eerie of it truely being 18" since it has a 370 motor like a smaller Double Horse.


Edit I looked at it again and the Banox has a 380 not a 370.It looks identical to the smaller Double Horse but the Banox is available in blue as well.It should be a new and larger version of the Double Horse for $3 more.

They sure are fun. We have a blast with them. I like to run them between runs of my faster boats. It surprises me that they are quite quick and nimble for their price. Every time I head out to a lake with some onlookers, I typically sell two or three of these by recommending them. My LHS should stock them so they are easy to pick up for the folks I meet at the lakes.
