Its on it's way to me from Wireless Madness. I've a feeling I may have to come on to you good folks to help me build it, particularly the rigging. I downloaded the PDF manual and it's Double Dutch to me. 😭😭

I did. But she was a big blonde and distracted me too much. Struth.

I agree with you, I have brought one and just do not understand the instructions. Could someone do some pictures to guide us lesser mortals?

I have built a few yachts in my time but not one of these., Rigging is pretty standered on most yachts and once you have done one you will be wondering what all the fuss was. Is there a certain peace you are struggling with ?

Look for the YouTube videos of the building/rigging. They are not bad to build and rig but don't think you will do it in the time they say- it takes a little longer. I have done a few sails now for my DF65 which is basically the same as the DF95 and it gets easier the more you do and in fact I have now re-rigged my first A Sail as I thought I could make a better job now.
Take your time and it will be quite satisfying when you complete it.

I don't know how you guys feel about posting links to other forums (fora?). However, the rcgroups.com has a HUGE blog on the DF95.

The big plus is that being an American site it is all in (almost) English.

Wow thank you all for your posts, my problem was the technical description with not many pictures I just couldn't understand what went where and why. I shall now look at the links provided and hopefully be able to sail mine for the first time in over a year of ownership.
