Its not that much different then the Hydrotek/Joysway boat HK sold that was way cheaper, just as fast also.

Looks like a good beginners boat, but should have a beginners price to match

Hydrotek F1 uses a standard flex drive routed through a dummy outboard motor and a not-too-desirable U-joint. The OUTRUNNER motor it uses is smaller than the inrunner in the Valvryn too, the same 2842 outrunner used in the Barbwire XL and Joysway Rocket 26.



Truly, it looks like the inside bits & pieces of a Barbwire XL, all the way down to the ESC and the black plastic components tray:

The hardware in this boat doesn't impress me much and it's mega expensive for what it is.

The HobbyKing Rocket Power 650EP is similar but a much better choice but alas, discontinued now.
(why do they stop producing the good models so quickly whilst the mediocre ones stay around for years !? )

I was lucky enough to get 2 of them in a warehouse sale for £60 each.
Quite fast straight out of the box and turn on a dime.

I got both of my Joysway Infinitys for half price when they were being closed out by Atomik, about $126 each. Between my friends and myself we bought 4 of them.

Can't wait to get my hands on this. Hopefully it's more reliable than my HK 650EP.
