Model designs RC sailboat
Kit models consist of individual parts that must be completely assembled. A kit contains all the materials needed to build the model, such as hull and sails. Not included are paints, adhesives and accessories parts for the remote control such as sail winches and remote control.
ARR models are partly pre-assembled, but do not include remote control components. Batteries and servos must also be purchased separately. ARR models are suitable for model sailors who want to use an existing control system.
RTR models are completely assembled RC sailboats that are delivered almost ready for operation and with all necessary accessories. Only minor assembly work needs to be carried out, such as mast or keel assembly. A remote control consisting of transmitter and receiver as well as servos are included.
RC sailboat hull materials
Many RC sailboats are delivered with a plastic hull made of ABS. This plastic is highly weather-resistant, easily deformable and very stable. If you are thinking about a regatta and competition with other model sailors, you should go for a hull made of GRP. Glass-fibre reinforced plastics are extremely stable and can often withstand major jostling and minor accidents on the water without damage. Model builders who enjoy building models should go for a kit. With construction kits, there is a choice between ready-made hulls or a construction made of wood.
RC sailboats for children
RC sailboats are not suitable as children's toys. However, older children and teenagers can gain their first experience with the support of adults. Manufacturers recommend kits and models only from the age of 14.
