As a perfect introduction to R/C Yacht Racing the HydroPro Affinity RG65 Class Racing Yacht is hard to beat!

 

The HydroPro Affinity stands out from its closest competitors by including 2 complete racing rigs with mylar sails at a fraction of the cost of lesser optioned boats.

 

Quick and easy to assemble, the Affinity will have you on the water for some close, competitive racing or relaxing cruising in no time, with a performance that will satisfy even the most discerning RC Yacht Skipper.

 

The Affinity comes complete with a heavy duty sail winch, metal geared rudder servo, receiver & battery harness/switch assembly and battery holder.

 

The hull and rudder and are molded from tough plastic, while the mast and booms are made using lightweight carbon fiber tubes for strength and durability. A streamlined cast zinc alloy ballast weight and stiff hydro-dynamically designed, extruded aluminum fin attaches to the hull using a threaded retainer.

 

Assembly couldn't be simpler and all that is required to sail the model is a 2 Channel Transmitter/Receiver set of your choice and 4 AA sized alkaline or NiMH batteries.

 

The Affinity uses a sophisticated hull design and built-in rig 'tuning' allowing it to be competitive in a wide range of wind conditions making it ideal for class racing, one design racing or general sailing. It makes a great choice for a group of experienced skippers and novices alike and will be fully supported with spare parts and accessories.

I bought the boat for $149 which at the time was a good deal considering both A and B rigs were included. Soon after the price went to $91. The deal of the century. There is NO class to race with and the Affinity doesn’t compare to a class RG65. The boat can compete with a DF65 but isn’t class legal. I bought a v6 DF65 hull for $50 and retired the Affinity hull so I could race in that class. Everything switched over perfectly. The DF class has added an A+ rig and sail (which woke the boat up with 25% more sail area and cost $70. The B rig will be used only 5% of the time. This is a GREAT sailing boat. I compete in several classes and this is my favorite. Although this is labeled “HydroPro” it is a Joysway product and shares ALL parts with the DF65. For this price you can buy a new DF65 with radio and receiver.

very nice model fits together well but NO instructions for the rigging. ..so i just looked up "df65 manual v1-v5 and also get the v6 version just in case) and it seems to be going too plan.

I was lucky enough to buy this bought for 90$ 2 years ago. It is loads of fun to play with and runs great. After 2 years it looks amazing and has been failure free. It handles great and remains dry after loooonng runs. For the battery I'm using a turnigy 1700 2S lifepo reciver pack and we have literally run a whole week before charging. 179.00 seems steep but it is a great boat and tons of fun!

May 26th 2018..Definitely a great boat, we have 14 within our group, but none ever cost this much, quite a few around $130-$160.
They were a viable option to the almost same V5 DF65 ( like the Explorer, having a wider beam but two sets of sails and rigging) but this is now overshadowed by the hefty price. Sure, at this time it qualifies for free delivery which compared to a DF65 is a $15 saving. Hopefully the price will become more realistic again, even $180 would be acceptable.

I followed the directions and it sails perfect. I used a 2.4 receiver under the deck and have absolutely no problems with reception.

After eight months I'mstill enjoying this yacht and it holds it's own against well set up Joysway 65's. My first review highlighted a few leak issues but once rectified, noothers have materialised. I'm still using the original deck patch,just sealing the edgeswith white insulation tape. Although dry cells run a long time in the boat, I now use Instant NiMH cells. I sail in salt water,rinsing with tap water after each session, sofar all components show no sign of corrosion.

Until this boat I had zero experience with a sailboat. I've owned hundreds of prop boats over the years, but it wasn't until I met a lady and her husband at the local water hole that rent R/C sailboats did I ever get a chance to try one. I then decided to get my own, and I'm glad I did. I will say, the instructions are not great, especially when it comes to the rigging (something I knew NOTHING about). But with some research and help from the rental guy (who owns 2 world records for sailing!) even he's impressed with how well it handles. Even when they're packing in their high end boats due to too high winds...the Affinity is still handling the wind and loving it (and she's fast!). I did replace all the rigging lines with better quality stuff than the kite string it comes with (a 5 dollar roll of braided 80lb fishing line will let you re-rig this boat 100 times over). Hull quality is excellent, sails are great, (mine came rolled, not folded, so no creases) haven't had any issues with the included servos. overall I'm really impressed. Running it with a much modified turnigy 9x that I use for my quadcopters and an orangerx receiver, but there's no reason you couldn't run this on a very basic 2ch 2 stick radio. Overall, I love this boat!

Great quality hull and fittings, 2 full rigs, sails beautifully, I don't know how they can sell it for this price.
The instruction manual diagrams are of poor quality ( very dark images) but just go to Soch Sails web site and follow the rigging instructions for the DF 65 and it all goes together without problems. Superb. Just buy one and enjoy.

Not my first sailboat. Previous Seawinds, EC12, Soling. But this is the best one. Sails perfectly in slight to strong winds. Fun to build. Parts are all there. Instructions are good. Quality is excellent. Everything about this boat is well done. It's a blast to sail.

Received Boat on Thursday of last week and am happy with it. Most annoyed that today, Monday, Hobby King has reduced the price by 20%!!!!!

I am not happy at that.

Come on Hobbyking, be decent to your customers? There were a few of the minor parts missing when I received it, Luff Rings, and not enough rigging cord.

What about some credit on my Account???
