Arrow Shark RTR's
« on: March 06, 2014, 08:54:19 PM »

Hi, just looking at arrow sharks website, they sell a 55" Wind Rider (Sport Version) with a 6hp motor. They have tuned pipes, trim tabs, turn fins ect. What I am trying to get at is they seem like decent RTR models when compared to others yet the one I have described is only 536. Are they just as bad quality as the other RTR's?!
Cheers.

they are the better boat in the rtr lot,arrow shark have come along way and there engines run very well indeed i have one,i have had a few arrow shark boats and they are good, O0 the problem you have is the import tax which will sting you alot, >>:-( >>:-(
it all depends on what you want really,for that kind of money theres good second hand built boats for abit less,the other problem is if it all goes wrong then you are kinda stuck for bits,unless you got down the zenoah route which alot of people do do in the end,
the trouble is with most ready to run boats is they come with crap hardware and engines that you will be bored with within 5 minutes.the arrow shark ones are quick,run very well and the hardware is good, :-))

Hi again  :P
I am not really interested in buying one, I wish I looked at them when I was looking for an RTR. I was just having a nose at their boats and was shocked at how 'cheap' they are but they seem to come with a fair bit of kit on them! Cheers

Im bringing in some ready to run boats and fitting them out with RCMK Engines... With or without radio gear.
All Import and Tax paid with all quality parts.
Based on a Blade hull... and same hardware that everyone uses.

Yes, I know, I don't want one, was just curious to hear if they are any good! We are well pleased with ours   :-)
