Unboxing a Vaterra Ford Raptor Pre Runner 4WD Truck RTR w/ AVC Technology


Finally, I have an “AVC” or “Active Vehicle Control” RC vehicle here in the studio with me. I have been curious about this new technology. I find it intriguing that a truck will now actually “sense” its own stability. I am excited to put this to the test. BUT! First, I have to unbox it for all of the RC ADVENTURES viewers!

“The Vaterra® Ford Raptor pre runner is engineered to be driven just like the awesome Raptor trophy trucks that compete in gruelling, long distance desert races like the Baja 1000. Underneath its detailed body is a rugged 4WD chassis complete with long-travel suspension and metal gear VTV™ (Viscous Torque Vectoring) differentials. This, combined with its high-output Dynamite brushless power system, will allow you to tackle any terrain at speeds of over 55 mph. And you’ll do so with the unbelievable stability of Spektrum™ AVC™ (Active Vehicle Control) technology that makes hundreds of steering and throttle corrections per second so you can drive faster with more control.

AVC™ (Active Vehicle Control) Technology
Patent-pending Spektrum AVC technology uses a combination of sensors and software algorithms to adjust steering and throttle output at a rate faster than humanly possible, so you enjoy a more manageable driving experience.

Licensed Ford Raptor Pre Runner Body
The licensed body is modelled after the Raptor pre runner trucks that compete in gruelling long distance desert races like the Baja 1000. It comes pre-painted with cooling fan and fuel tank details as well as official Ford badging.

Waterproof Electronics
Rain or shine, mud or sand, the waterproof servo, receiver and speed control allow you to run wild without worry.

High-Performance Brushless Power System
Revel in the power of a potent Dynamite 3300Kv, 4-pole brushless motor system that delivers massive torque and speeds of over 55 mph.*

Metal Gear VTV™ (Viscous Torque Vectoring) Differentials
The innovative VTV differentials prevent wheel spin on loose surfaces when cornering hard or hammering the throttle. Their smooth engagement and consistent feel, along with AVC technology, will give you confidence to run fast on all types of surfaces.

*Requires 11.1V 5000mAh 3S 30C Li-Po battery, sold separately.”
