RC Ocean Going Racing Yacht 2.2m
With it's huge sail and bright colours this is a very striking and fast R/C Yacht.
All required items are installed, including mainsail winch, steering servo and all rigging, sail and hardware. All you need to do is add your own receiver and battery!
Boat hull is based entirely on an ocean going racing yacht and moulded in fibreglass with a perfect gelcoat and enamel painted finish.
Don't be mistaken in thinking these boats are slow and boaring. In a stiff breeze they can be extremely quick and perform turns rapidly, proving to be very exciting.Spec.Length : 1000mmHeight : 2200mmWeight : 3565gArea of Sails : 0.52m2Ballast weight: 1.3kgWater depth: 50cm+Draft from the waterline to bottom of keel: 400mm

Radio System (2ch)
Receiver battery.Note: Please ensure you fill the keel ballast to 1.3kg or heavier. Lead shot, bearings or bolts/nuts will be sufficient. Keeping them in place with epoxy.
the hull finish is excellent and looks great. i recommend replacing the cheap string stays with something better. dont do the 1 hour setup, take the time to build the boat properly replacing cheap fittings and fill the bulb with lots of lead. the boat sails like a dream and very easy to sail. it helps to have some sailing knowledge and model building.
im going to buy another one soon for sure to play with.Boot kam mit abgefallenen Einbauen, Haken löste sich auch gleich. Oberflächen innen kein Untergrund für Befestigungen, Kielschwert wakelig, Ruder auch. Äußere Oberflächen super. Gute Ideen im Boot! Einfache Verstellmöglichkeiten am Segel. Segelfläche = IOM
also 0,6 m². Kielgewicht zu klein, nur Platz für 1,65 kg Bleischrot. Schwerer Bootskörper trägt aber nicht mehr. Also nur für wenig Wind. Segelwinde ist Mist, nach zwei Schlägen
sprang die Großschot von der Spule, weil Kapsel nicht eng anliegt. Boot lief trotzdem am Wind zurück zu Steg. Ist ein schöner Rundspanter mit gutem Wasserablauf. Kann aber wohl mit Regatta IOMs nicht mithalten. Käufer sollte etwas Erfahrung haben- für Reparaturen und Tuning, wie Ersatz der Litze im Vorlieg des Groß. Fazig: Boot ist
konkurrenzlos günstigI hope that this follow-up to my previous review is fair warning. After the maiden sailing, (which was a real pleasure not only because it was my first ever RC yachting experience), I noticed some slop in the keel fitting. I put it down to 'bedding in', and so, adjusted the nut on deck, to secure it. My next outing resulted in a recurrence of the same. Having an engineering background, I realised that something other than the nut slackening off was amiss. The third outing resulted in more of the same, with the keel being looser than the previous times. A not so strenuous pull on the keel resulted in it parting from the securing rod completely. Wonderful!!! I WOULD NOT ADVISE BUYING THIS MODELAfter receiving the first boat with a broken hull, I ordered this boat anew (before it would be on backorder). Everything fine with the new boat. Quick assembly. Everything in good shape, great hull. Moving parts dont work precisely, but for that price it is very acceptable. Had it in the water once. Great fun. The biggest replacement what I will do: put a new buld on it with 2KG at least. The boat - due to its height - puts itself aside very fast in gusts. Some more modifications will follow.
Would always buy this boat again.Very fast delivery from the EU warehouse (except for the GLS guy, who dropped the parcel in a far away post shop, pretending he did a delivery attempt - this happened twice now).
Great boat. Looks very complete. Unfortunately, the hull was broken on the back end. Wondering how this could happen. But, as I ordered multiple parts, the warehouse guy opened the box to put the remaining items ordered in. I don't like that.
This was my 60th order at HK and the really bad thing is the service. When something arrives broken (happened for the 2nd time), you have to ship it back at your costs. The service location is not in Germany but in the UK, which costs me bloody 15 Euros for the parcel. This is 15pcnt of the item's price. No, hobbyking, this is no service orientation.
I bought this yacht now for the second time in order to get a fast replacement before summer ends and before the boat is sold out agin.
Nice sailing can been seen and controlled even from 400m distance. Light set should be added for night sailing!Had a phantom previously and had a blast , but this boat. .... It's even better looking and faster, both running on stock gear (gonna change it though), with little and cheap modifications this boat is water proof, some guy here recommended making a mold to cast a bulb out of lead, I did this and it's the best modification you can do, a little over 2kgs !! Great performance, great boat.I have purchased the ocean racer I very pleased with it,when adding ballast I would say put at least,2.3kg and it will sail great, jimI don't know what the negative fuss is all about this product. I ordered mine and it was shipped in four days; it stayed in customs for 5 days and received it in excellent condition. So nine days in all, not bad! The product was packed tightly inside and out; no damages and the servos work as they should. I assembled it with ease using the supplied instruction - very simple! I packed the Bulb with steel BB's and a five minute epoxy. I don't know what the weight of the bulb is after this procedure but rest assured that the boat is exactly on the marked water line. I had great fun with the sailboat on her maiden voyage in the pool. No modification is needed. I will bring it to the marina next time now that I know that this sailboat is capable of what it's suppose to do. I am a very satisfied customer, thanks Hobby King!The boat definately needs more balast in the bulb,to do this I have cut the bulb into 2 halves,made a plaster of paris male plug.thoroughly dried it with a heat gun,then sprayed a coat of paint to make it water proof then used this to make a female mould to cast the lead in to both halves then glued it back together and painted it,the B rig off an IOM is perfect for this boat in
