Land yachting combines the grace of sailing with the thrill of motor racing. It's great to watch your land yacht skimming across smooth hard sand or a large tarmac area at high speed and with no noise just using the wind.
Full-size land yachts hold speed records of over 126mph sailing at 3-4 times faster than the wind that propels them and now you too can enjoy the challenge and thrills of land yachting with the HobbyKing Bat 1 RC land yacht.
The Bat 1 has been designed by a renowned RC and full-size land yacht pilot and it is available in 3 versions, "Almost Ready to Run", "plug & play" and in "Kit" form. All versions have a simple, rugged construction and are very straightforward to assemble. The Bat 1 utilizes just 2 channels, one for steering and one for controlling the sail, it also has low friction ballraced wheels for super smooth free-running and a colorful eye-catching sail finishes the Bat 1 off nicely.
