A beautifully crafted R/C sailboat, the Discovery-II is fully built and almost ready to run. All required items are installed, including mainsail winch, steering servo, rigging, and sails. Just add your own 4-channel transmitter and receiver plus receiver battery to be ready to sail. The Discovery-II is a larger and improved version of the old Discovery 500.
Boasting a 620mm long hull, and a enlarged sail with 0.18 sq. meter of sail area, the Discovery-II is actually a hybrid that also features a small brushed motor to help you should you get into trouble or are stuck in light winds.
The Discovery-II hull is based on a ocean going racing yacht and molded in fiberglass with a gelcoat and enamel painted finish. Do not be mistaken in thinking these boats are slow and boring. In a stiff breeze they can be extremely quick and perform turns rapidly, proving to be very exciting.
The Discovery-II comes pre-fabricated and all you need to do is connect the sail, keel, then drop in your radio system and battery! The large servo winch and steering are already set up and ready to go!

As already posted instructions could be better.
Shame about the speed controller motor cuts out after a few seconds Had to replace it with one from another model which works fine.
No spares or parts list available
But with ESC replaced model look good on the water and can now power my way out of troubleSuper nice Boat.
The built was finished in 30 min and it was very simple.
Over all very nice and good quality
Product.Thought I'd do a review, having just got one of these and sailed it for the first time. (video to follow) First class product. Ultra fast delivery from a local warehouse. Everything you need is in the box. except the battery. Only problem was mine arrived with a broken propeller. Bad assembly in china no doubt. Cost me 16 for a replacement off ebay, as HK don't stock replacements (silly) Instructions for assembly are rubbish and often wrong, with bad photos. But with a little bit of common sense all goes together no problem. Well worth the money ... get one.
I received last week. The boat had broken engine mount. In the test, seeping into the hull much water gate problems . Said measuring 1850mm and only measures a 1130mm . Problems with reverse setting esc . No yachting all well but you have to work sails settings area.
Just received my boat today.. a little disappointed with this. First it states its 1850mm tall..its only 1130mm, the strap holding the motor was broken, doesn't tell you that a battery is needed for the motor AND receiver. The manual was horrible and very vague, the pics in the ad were more help tham the instructions.
