Introduction
Fei-Lun has been enjoying a streak of success with their FT line of fast and affordable 2.4GHz boats. While not always known for being the most reliable boats out there, they were easy to work on, easy to run and the self-righting feature was much appreciated by most beginners and experts alike.

When I was doing some pre-review research, I was shocked to find that this boat measures in at 65cm and has a 4S power system. That’s an insane amount of power for something that is not entirely hobby-grade (But I guess it’s less crazy than its predecessor, the FT010, which has a 4S system and brushed motors).
Before we begin, I would like to thank T-Mart for dragging me back into the world of writing reviews, I appreciate that they continue to value my opinion. I hope that you, the reader, would get some useful information out of this review. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you’ve any questions or comments.

Like the other boats in the FT line, the FT011 comes with everything (other than the AA batteries) you need to get started. I was quite impressed that they included multiple spare props along with some maintenance tools for the user, nice touch!
