RC Sailboat-LegendA beautifully crafted R/C sailboat, fully built and ready to run.
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 : 900mmHeight : 1800mmWeight : 1.4kgArea of Sails : 0.38m2Ballast weight: 1.3kgDraft from the waterline to bottom of keel: 360mm

I Have the Legend, My Friend has the Monsoon. Both these Boats are Great Value, Only Difference being the top Deck . the Legend is easier to Tape the Hatch Down, The mainly White Sails on the Monsoon is easier to See in open Water. I thought RC Yachts were for Old Farts, But No they are a Lot of Fun in a Group, I use the Turnigy 5 chn Mode 2 Mini Stick Radio in mine, Works well ,,about 150 metre Range Too Easy......BobVery fast order shipping Euro Warehouse to Belgium. All received OK. Boat in perfect state. incredible value and quality in relation with that HK price. Have the boat now for 14 days and have approx 12 hours sailtime with it. totally no problems, even the standard servo's are still working fine.For the ballast weight, I have 1550gr of lead (1510 gr lead and 40gr seal epoxy), ballast lead must be between 1500 and 1700 gram. Please take reference to shipshape rc com, incredible site all abouth those boats. Superb look on the water - my first sailboat - and for me it gives me so much pleasure, really a top product.Well packed super productGreat sailing boat. Keel is very strong so if you hit shallow rocks it will survive fine with no damage. I recommend using tape to hold down to canopy as you dont want any leaks in there. Sail is holding up very well for the material and has been accidentally put though some trees and sharp branches but still fine. Recommend to new sailers.Overall, this is a pretty sailboat, and although it took awhile for me to receive this item, it finally arrived. Assembly was fairly easy, and the instructions were good. I actually heard something rattling inside the hull, but couldn't find it at first. Once assembled, I went to water test it, and after a two minute test, I found there to be water in the hull. I finally found the item rattling inside, and see that the keel to hull support pipe had snapped off during transit. The hull was leaking through the keel screw attachment point. This shouldn't be, and I am trying for a "no FUSS" fix to the problem and wrote it up under the warranty and returns section. That was SIX days ago and I still haven't heard a word. Hopefully I can get this thing sailing again soon, without worrying about sinking. By the way, my one criticism of this boat is that it's a bit narrow on beam, and with a little more width, I feel it would be a lot more stable in a good breeze. I am looking forward to sailing her again, as soon as we find a solution to this dilema.Boot eins zu eins aus dem Karton aufgebaut, keine Fehlteile, keine Defekte, fr flottes Cruisen genau das richtige. Sicher, fr ambitionierte Segler gibt es bestimmt einiges an Verbesserungspotenzial, aber fr mich als Freizeitsegler ist es schon ziemlich perfekt!
An meinem Ententeich bin ich sogar oft der flotteste Wellenreiter...
Danke HK!I have bought this boat a few months ago. And i have to say that it's very good value for the money. I'm still using it every dag when possible and it lasts good.
Made some small configarations though to take it in strong winds.
I am very happy with it.I reseved the boat with broken servo tray. It could be glued, but I decided to replace the huge 130 gram sail winch and screw on the 55 gram servo. It good enought for a less then one meter boat. The maximum weight of ballast could be 2.5 kg, but the keel is made of plastic. I've cut 7 cm from it bottom to reduce bending. Now the boat run much more better against the wind.Wer sich diese Boot kaufen mchte, sollte schon einige handwerkliche Fhigkeiten mitbringen. Auspacken, zusammenbauen und lossegeln ist nicht. E sei denn, man legt keinen Wert auf guten Geradeauslauf und sich verziehenden Rumpf.
Meistens sind irgendwelche kleinen Anbauteile abgebrochen. Diese kann man weglassen, weil sich die Seile darin verheddern.
Viel schwerwiegender ist, dass die Ruderfhrung bei meinem Boot um 10 schief eingeklebt war. Also mute ich das Bootsdeck aufschneiden, um einen Zugang zu dem Rhrchen zu bekommen. Schmerzlich aber wahr. Bei einer geschlossenen Bauweise ein echt schwieriges Unterfangen, wenn die Optik nicht darunter leiden soll. Auerdem sollten Spanten eingebaut werden, damit sich der Rumpf nicht durchbiegt und die Belastung des Mastes auf das Deck sich in Grenzen hlt. Zumindest sollte ein Spant zwischen Mastfu und Kielkasten eingebaut werden. Wegen der engen Luke, mu dieser Spant halbiert und jede Hlfte einzeln eingepasst werden.
Also. Nur Mut, wer es sich zutraut.Just like the monsoon, but with an easier hatch to seal. They do sale ok in stock form, but if you want to get competitive, there is plenty of info around. I used to think RC sailboats were for the older generation, but it really is a great hobby. I really enjoy sailing these boats with my 8 year old son.
