PostSubject: Volantex Racent Angry Shark VS Joysway Bullet V3   Volantex Racent Angry Shark VS Joysway Bullet V3 EmptyMon Dec 09, 2019 8:28 pm

I am looking to buy a Volantex Racent Angry Shark and have done a LOT of reading.

I am torn between this and the Joysway Bullet V3.

They both seem to have their pros and cons, I am not so fussed about raw speed but usability and overall build quality and components is more what I am looking for.

Can anyone shed any light?  Thanks!

Most members here don’t go that fast....

I have in the past, competition mono 1....

I’m going to be flat out honest with you...

Both boats are junk

They both sport ABS plastic hulls... forget the internal cheap electronics all made in China, the hull made of ABS is enough to know they are completely crap... you need a grp hull, for easily fixes, ( epoxy and a bit of p38 because shit will happen!, but a grp boat is vastly easier to repair even after a more serious accident)

A fast electric can easily do 30-60mph and when I raced... 80mph was expected!

One small crash and that’s it... boats dead that hull will crack.. and probably sink! Those are boats designed for quick spend and 5 mins of fun mostly for kids and adults with a fleeting fancy to a fast boat!
They also have a tendency to flip over, and most can’t self right, do u have a rescue boat at hand or a pair of waders?
That said I have to ask can you handle a boat at that speed???? Most can’t! 

But I’m not ya momma, so spend as you like.... but.... you want to really read up on fast electric fundamentals, out runners, Kv ratings and then go to the real experts which when I want to go fast I go Here!

If you have questions, ask there isn’t much I don’t know about this area including the electronics!

Thanks for your reply, I have been mulling it over the past few days.

I agree that plastic is rubbish, so with that in mind I am weighing up a couple of other boats.  Please let me know what you think:


  • Aquacraft Revolt 30 - I believe this company has gone bust, but there are a few suppliers selling them new at a discounted price.  However, I am slightly concerned about spares.
  • Kyosho Jetstream 888VE - I like the look of this one, with the waterproof box for the electrics and the self-righting aspect.  But, it is quite a bit more expensive than the Revolt 30.


Thanks as always.

To be honest this is the same issue as all other boats, these just have bigger price tags for the Chinese junk..

My racing mono 1 was a beast and didn’t cost anywhere near these prices,

That included a 4050kv 

https://www.offshoreelectrics.com/proddetail.php?prod=Delta+Force+29%3A+Bare+Hull+%2829.5%22+749mm%29


Not sure why this links not working... it works the. Doesn’t occasionally... if it’s not working just google the Delta Force mono hull from offshore electrics.

This was the exact hull I used, both 27” and 33” version, the rest of the running gear came from preswitch models ( linked in first reply) it used a leopard 4050 in runner with an 120 amp esc on 3s lipos from hobby king, the hull I modified to self right with a chamber in the left side,total cost of that build was £300 including a 2ch transmitter! 

Paint job was simple 2 tone flat colour with a night orange nose and my number.

The point is, not only is it cheaper to build from scratch but you know the parts you can replace and upgrade, swap out etc and your not restricted to waiting for official spares that you just can’t get, if your prepared to waste £500 on plastic then how about waste same on a scratch built monster that will deffo give you a better hardon
