Any other videos ANYwhere? It would seem the answer is no.

I can find dozens of copies of the official videos onmany websites, but only the one privately shot vid that's already posted here: https://www.google.com/search?q=valv...w=1536&bih=745

Pro Boat Valvryn - another run (1 min 38 sec)

-Second video on youtube of this boat runing... same user!

Does anyone know if this need lube on the shaft like a normal RC boat does?
Can someone post a video of how to on this Valvryn 25.

Also the tail seens to sink...does it get wet inside the hull when just sitted on water?

I saw that, seems like a great deal. I’m guessing these are going to be discontinued very soon unfortunately.

Am I the only one who thinks that reducing the size of the holes might help this sinking boat?
Perhaps gluing some Styrofoam in select places?

Well I guess I am the only one who thinks the hull could be slightly modified. Holes filled
Nowhere have I read anyone modding the float system of fill/drain ports.
At $179.99 which is a much more realistic price and possibly a good deal. I'm sure it will at the least be interesting and fun.
I think I will give it a try.

Do it! Let us know how you like it.

I’d recommend getting some spares as well, flex shafts specifically.

Valvyrn came today


Ok so it came today and 1st impression is, I'm Impressed.
Typical Proboat quality with everything where it's supposed to be and of slightly above average quality. A fair amount of aluminum in the drivetrain with ball bearings.
Strange that there is a row of peel and stick wheel weights inside the left sponson on the roof presumably for self righting I guess, and possibly sinking We'll see..
There's a 4mm propshaft so a 3/16 adapter will make available a lot of props. The composite 3 blade that it comes with is 33mm. The motor is a 2848 with a 3.17 shaft so upgrades are available if needed this one is a 3000kv.
I might not have been so impressed if I'd paid $300.00 but for $180 I'm happy.
Tomorrow will tell just how happy. Will try to get my buddy to shoot some video.

Hi NEDan,

Make a video because I wanted to see this boat in the water. There are only 2 videos on youtube but they are not cool. Do not seal the holes, it will not self righting.

Will do Marcos, I'm no engineer so filling holes not where I'd start. Maybe later I will if I think it will help.
Don't get your hopes up for a quality video from my phone. I'm not a video-ographer either.
It will be cool though.

me too I'm no engineer ...
I have a Tenshock F1 model (the measurements are identical, length and width, I believe it is the same matrix), which is the same but is fiber. It cracked as per the pictures. I had this problem fixed (a motorcycle painter fixed it for me) and received it with the plugged holes.
Even with the holes plugged in, the still boat appears to sink but does not sink.
I had to redo the holes because with the plugged holes (only at the bottom) the self righting didn't work.
Mine has motor Tenshock 2948 3100Kv, ESC 80A Tenshock, propeller 2 blades 36mm. It runs at 75/78Km (GPS).
