JOYSWAY DRAGONFLITE by Fulvia Apprentice   Posted: 1 day ago
Great boat😁. There are now nearly 20 in our club. Eastbourne & District Model Yacht Club. https://edmyc.org.uk/ Takes less than 30 seconds to dis-mast but mast does not collapse. There are plenty different sail bags available for easy damage free transportation however.👍 If you are looking for an easy to transport yacht then the Dragon Force is ideal as it fits on the back seat of the smallest of cars fully rigged. It sails almost as well as the Dragon Flite. The club hosting the Dragon Force National Championship this weekend.

HELP ME DECIDE PLEASE by Les-Forbes Lieutenant   Posted: 3 days ago
I'm looking at three model rc yachts just now and can't decide. JOYSWAY DRAGON FORCE 65 V6 JOYSWAY DRAGONFLITE 95 PROBOAT RAGAZZA V2 Am I right in saying they are all IOM rating so I could enter the race circuit. Do any of them have any niggly faults that have been experienced by owners in the UK. And do they all have removable masts so as I can transport them in a little car. (Fiat 500) Or maybe there are others I can consider. Thank you.

It has and in many ways. I'm sailing for my little grandson who is only two. I have never sailed a model boat before, be it motor or yacht. But I'm determined to learn to pass on the him when is older. The articles you present are very informative and your club listings are excellent. I'm confident Ill continue to associate myself with your website and continue to learn.

Phantom IOM by AlanB Seaman   Posted: 5 days ago
I have just startred model yachting and have bought a Phantom IOM. Does anyone have any pictures of how they have fitted battery and receiver into the very small space under the hatch or know of any links to where these can be found please? I'm really struggling to get everything in. Also what type/size of battery would you recommend? Thanks.

Holiday sailing??? by ericyacht32 Recruit   Posted: 22 days ago
I am trying to restore a 6ft masted model yacht built for me by my father in 1940 whilst he worked in Uphams ship yard in Brixham which i raced on Goodrington boating pond during the war since when it has layed in store causing the rigging to babdecay and i now have forgotten the system. Is there any one around Torbay with the knowledge of this type of yacht. thanks

seeking help and advice by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi and welcome to the site. Yachts are not the easiest of models to renovate as over the years the control and sailing methods have evolved quite dramatically. The map shows you appear to be located in the Torquay area and I suggest you look in this sites Model Boat Clubs section and find a local club near to your location. Present your self at one of their sailing days and ask them if they would be prepared to help. Hopefully a member on this site who is local to your area may be able to help. I am too far away in Sandbach. Sounds like a nice yacht, are you able to post any pictures? Dave

Sea Queen refurbishment by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Doug Resin is heavy and applying by coating the inside of a boat will if the wood is porous absorb lots and greatly increase the weight. The thinner it is the more it will be absorbed. Layup resin is of a similar consistency to liquid brushing paint (not the gel type). It goes more pourable as the temperature increases. It is much thinner than the Isopon resin sold in many car repair packs. Adding styrene will thin the mixture allowing it to penetrate the glass cloth or matting. It is worked well into the mat to keep the weight to a minimum and any excess is mopped up with paper towels. After several coats the fibreglass will be formed and dries rock hard over a couple of days if the correct temperature is maintained. High temps will reduce the time but will be more difficult to work with as the gel stage will happen much quicker. Sorry to rabbit on a bit but I am trying to warn you that you may end up with a very heavy model if you do not use sparingly. If you can get the consistency similar to yacht varnish you can, like me, paint inside the boat including the underside of the deck. Paint out any runs and remove any excess with paper towels. You really only need a very thin coating. If you need to add strength then use some cloth or matting and work the resin well in and mop off any excess with paper towels. If you want to use your brushes and mixing pots again Acetone is the best cleaner but do keep it away from the resin. Both your alternatives would work just as well. It must be Summertime as we keep having rain showers! Cheers Dave

Midwest Cranberry Isle by Grandpa Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
[Score: 8/10] 36" Midwest Cranberry Isle Single Propellor (3 Blade) Direct Drive Powered by NiMH (7.2v) Batteries - Comments: Recently purchased this boat built by Don Sutton, Scale Captain, Metro Modellers Toronto, Canada 🇨🇦. Don built the boat about 15 years ago, but to make room for a larger new model he is selling older models. This style of Yacht has long been a favourite of mine which will be my winter scratch build project. Having this working model in my workshop will assist me with the project.

Legal Limit by Krampus Commander   Posted: 3 months ago
Original design "Express Cruiser" type boat. Old home-made fiberglass hull built in UK in the 1970s and rescued from previous owner's garage. Model built during April-July 2015. Approx. 1/24 scale. In trying to emulate a Bertram Bahia Mar boat, I ended up with an originally fictitious design. Real life boat could be a 32-footer (9.75m) yacht. 3mm 9v LED navigation lights system. Runs on Mtroniks G2 3A Hyper BEC 6-12V 15A Constant controller, Biao123 A2122 brushless motor, and a NiMH 10.8v battery.

Pinkie Pie by Krampus Commander   Posted: 3 months ago
Model kit made on or about 1969 by defunct German firm Robbe based upon Chris Craft Roamer motor yachts of the era. Hull appears to be inspired on 1950s Chris Craft Constellation series. Model tried to emulate a 46 feet version. I got this one half-built and adapted as a gift for my child inspired in the "My Little Pony" characters. Approx. 1/20 scale. Authentic Chris Craft Roamer 46 measured 46 x 15 feet. It runs with a 4-bladed 40mm metal propeller, 320A 7.2V-16V ESC 30A constant, a NiMH 9.6v battery, and a Mabuchi 540 Motor.

Real life boat could be nearly 39 x 13.7 feet. Similar real-life Hatteras 40 Double Cabin yacht measured 41 x 13.7 feet. Runs with NiMH 9.4v battery, an HPI Racing 1145 Gt 550 Motor 14.4V, and a 40mm 3 blade propeller.😁

what fittings for a plane prop by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Chris and Sonar I bought mine at the Blackpool Show and Brian offered me the top at the same time. I believe he intends to make a part kit in time and the top I and my friend have were from the development stage. Perhaps if you give them a ring and speak to Ann or Brian they will also sell you the top. Certainly makes for a strong boat and is relatively quick to build if you have model aircraft experience. There are running formers on the base so they help keep the model relatively straight in the water. Great fun especially if there is no wind for the yachts or the weed is being problematic. Dave
