Default Arrow Shark 47 Flying Dragon

Does anybody have experience with Arrow Shark boats? I just got one almost free. It was an unfinished project, and had been kicking around in the guy's garage for a couple years. The hull hasn't even been drilled yet. I have the Zenoh 26 engine and some of the rigging, but some things have been misplaced over the years.

Should I look for the rigging parts that were designed for this boat or buy aftermarket pieces? This will be my first RC boat so I'm not sure exactly how to procede.

I had one of these,fitted with Bonzi hardware,ran fantastic,just make sure you get the placement of the motor,rudder and trim tabs right and you won't go far wrong,also use a fuel bag,not a hard tank and place it in front of the motor,happy boating.

Arrow Shark to my opinion makes good boats including their hardware and yes clone engines too. Your choices are many when it comes to hardware. You can choose to get a complete package from arrowshark.com, Warehousehobbies.com, or topsecretboats.com.

If this is going to be a sport boat (not raced) then buy a WHH clutch for it so you can putt around the pond if you choose to do so. If you are going to race it then loose the clutch to save weight.

if your looking for a fun boat they are okay. If you want to race then stay away. You can buy a great ARTR second hand that would eat an arrow shark on the water. JMO
