HELP ME DECIDE PLEASE by Les-Forbes Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 59 minutes 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.

PROBOAT WESTWARD 18 by Les-Forbes Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 2 days ago
This very popular small sailing yacht from Proboat has a plastic cabin held tight by three strong magnets. Tricky to get off in a hurry, particularly if your fingers are cold, or you are an old 'Coffin Dodger' like myself with cold hands and very little grip. Here's a wee tip I hope any owner may find helpful.

JOINING BATTERY & RECEIVER CABLE by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 days ago
Hi Les, then I assume that you need something like this harness with JR/Hitec male & female plug/socket. This one also has a third plug for connecting the battery to a charger when the switch is in the off position. DON'T use this feature if you are using a LiPo battery!! There are several other versions without this third plug available here http://www.componentshop.co.uk/futaba-charging-switch-harnes... I guess the RX battery is a fairly small NiMH and also has the JR type plug. BTW: something to check before switching on- Does your speed controller have a BEC circuit? If so it supplies the RX as well so you don't need an RX battery at all. Or doesn't your yacht have any auxiliary motor and ESC? Happy sailing, Cheers Doug 😎 Looking forward to the video of the insulting tape 😁😉 or is that what I keep seeing on the news with Mr T??

Guestbook Post by Les-Forbes Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 2 days ago
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: 2 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.

New to R/C Sailing Yachts. by Les-Forbes Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 5 days ago
I purchased a small Proboat Westward 18" sail yacht primarily for my young grandson, who is only two years old. So it looks like I'll being doing most of the training meantime. It's a great little boat and I've popped on a Lego Sailor and Seagull just to give a little humour to the sailing days. I hope to show som of the action in the coming months.

mystery yacht by basilsdad Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 8 days ago
hi all. I have purchased a yacht hull and deck as my next project from that well known auction site, but am struggling to find the maker or the name of the yacht?. it came complete with a fibreglass deck, measures 48" long 10" beam and 11" to keel bottom, I am sure some one out there knows what it is based on or who manufactured it. I have started the build and am going to loosely base it on the 1930 yacht enterprise, mainly the sail plan. have added a few photos if it helps thanks for any help. basilsdad
