New Product

H-King Marine Scott Free Offshore Racing Deep V Boat

Summer is coming and I've just found a new toy to bother the ducks with in my local waterway. The H-King Marine Scott Free Offshore Racing Deep V Racing Boat looks the business, great product video. I've got the original Aquaholic Deep V and I'm thinking its time for an upgrade. Checked out the full size versions webpage and facebook as well, nice looking machine for those that love their racing boats.

Boaters are nice people.
Nice review, but you need to get your facts straight;

The stickers are not covered in gelcoat, gelcoat is used as a first layer when working in a mold with polyester.
What you mean, is that the stickers are covered with a clear coat of (most likely) two component varnish.

The suggestion to replace the collet style coupler for a universal is a bad one, a universal coupler has no place in a fast electric and the grubscrew will damage the flexshaft.

The prop looks very dull in the pictures, some sharpening and balancing may add a few mph in speed.

Some grammar check by someone who's first language is English would't hurt too.

Regards, Jan.

Hi pompebled.
I don't agree concerning your collet opinion as plenty of speed boats use that type of coupler, but anyway, thanks for sharing your opinion and the clear coat point.
I would be glad if you could help with the grammar points you've pointed (please PM me if you want to help)
Cheers !

Using a coupler with grubscrews on a flexshaft is a sign of ignorance or budget cuts by the manufacturer.

A universal coupler has no purpose in a fast electric, despite the use of them in cheap (= tight budget) boats.

I'm no native English speaker myself, but I'll contact you on correcting the typo's and 'weird' nomenclature (boatwise) via PM.
Please have a little patience, as I'm not in the best of health at the moment.

I have to agree with pompebled here. RC'ers usually upgrade their boat drives by switching FROM a grub-screw type coupler to a collet type, ...not the other way around. I did that with the notorious 3-screw coupler that comes in the Atomik Barbwire as well as in some other RTR boats.

Experienced boaters do so because a collet coupler holds the cable more firmly over a large area within it's 3 or 4 jaws without digging in, crushing and/or damaging the cable, as a grub screw will eventually do.

With a properly mounted and aligned motor, no universal joint is needed. You only require the latter or some other type of flex coupler when using rigid output shafts.

I have this boat very fun boat first two runs were fine besides it not sucking up water so I made my own water pickup that I'll post a pic of ? But now today I went out and it was windy out and it didn't seem to wanna plane the lake was windy and waves like crazy but I don't think that should matter I did put a set of bigger lipos I usually run the 2s nanotech 3000mah slim packs and I put 2s 30c reaction 5000mah today ? Is that why ? .
