Hobie Drop-in Version 2

The V2 Hobie Drop-in will now have a rear adjustable throttle eliminating any forward tiller control. The throttle can swing fully to the side or toward the rear keeping the forward space free. The tiller arm, throttle cable, sheath, and kill switch wire have been configured to make storage even more manageable. The V1 will still be available.

* Video of the performance will be coming soon once all of the trials are completed. Stay tuned...
