That's the one I mentioned Jeff. The Angry Shark.
Same hull & gear as the Vector 80, but with self righting feature.
Pretty good value for an 800mm 4s RTR boat.

Yes the angry shark thats it , do you have pics of the inside so I can see how the flood chamber is constructed ,I may attempt to do the same to the 70 if possible.

I'm afraid not mate. I have the Vector 80. Not the Angry Shark. Even though they are the same hull, the layout for the battery may be different to help with the self righting.
I would like to see the inside too,
They don't state what type of radio system they supply either. That would be nice to know too.

I agree.
The lines & shape of the boat is just glorious to the eye.
I've no doubt that it will hit 80kph.
I run it with a 1500kv motor & it is in the mid 70's. The 1800kv motor should get it up there to the 80's.

It probably comes with the same old generic Volantex 2.4ghz transmitter.


The images look like computer renders, but you can see the real thing. Apparently this boat emerged 7 months ago under the Racent brand. No self-righting footage though:

I posted about the Angry Shark some time ago on this very forum where we all discussed it when it first appeared, I bought one back then but haven't run it yet. It is indeed the same hull as the Vector 80 but with a separate container type flood chamber ala Barbwire XL type. Hardware is all metal & 4mm flex & 5mm propshaft + 2 blade 40mm metal prop.

Search Volantex Angry Shark 81cm Mono Self Righter on this forum, I posted this on October 24 - 2017. Some of you saw it then & replied to the thread then. I thought it was just me that had a bad memory, Good news if Banggood are going to stock this boat.

Yes. I deal a lot with Banggood. Not just for R/C gear but also, anything you can think of.

The Angry Shark deck @ the rear is different to the computer generated pictures, the pictures show the rear deck as being the same as the Vector 80 with the 2 square recesses behind the hatch. The production hull is flat & level with the hatch, making it easier to tape.

Yes I also get a lot of precision engineering tools from Banggood, their prices are brilliant compared with the UK. Considering how cheap their engineering tools are they are of pretty good quality & pretty accurate. I am currently waiting on about 5 different orders from then as we speak.

Depends on what you buy. BG also sells worthless crap, so watch for that. I usually avoid their tooling.

Example? How about a set of "high speed steel" drill bits that aren't made of high speed steel?

https://www.banggood.com/50PCS-11_52...r_warehouse=CN


It looked like a great deal until I saw this:

"Hss Drill Bit Set For Wood, Plastic And Aluminum."

They are poorly ground too, some with asymmetrical, off-center tips. Avoid avoid!

These can't even drill soft steel according to complaints from past customers. That means that they are either made of cheap low-carbon steel, or they were never heat-treated/hardened properly. I used HSS tooling almost every day for 16 years in a tool & die shop, and still do at home now. HSS drills certainly can cut through plain unhardened steel, no problemo. Junk.
