Relax by taking a quiet afternoon sailing with your rc sail boats. And if you still do not own one, let's get started.
Here is your online shopping guide to incredibly popular rc sail boats. Below are side by side comparison and reviews to help you buy radio control sailboats.
RC Sail Boats Equipment
The good thing about rc sailboats is that there is no motor or engine to worry about. They are simple to set up and maintain, perfect if you just want a quiet afternoon to relax by the lake. And with no noisy motor, there are plenty of places where you can surely play with your radio controlled sailboat.
The main equipment you will need is the sailboat kit and a 2 channel radio control system. Batteries for the transmitter and receiver are usually not included.
Buying Tip: It is well worth buy rechargeable batteries such as NiCad or NiMH. They will pay for themselves after just a few recharges.
Ready to Run (RTR) RC Sail Boats
There are plenty of rc sail boats that come ready to run. That means the boat and radio control system are both included in the kit. You will usually just need to buy batteries for the radio controller.
Ready to run sailboats also make it easy for beginners by being pre-assembled. Some even come with an instructional video to help you get started without any problems.
Assembly of Radio Control Sailboats
Some rtr radio control sailboats require some minor assembly. Nothing major to worry about. Assembly times may take 30 - 60 minutes, consisting of assembling the sail and maybe installing the radio control system.
Here are some popular models that have been reviewed and are recommended for beginners and experienced modelers. Below is a side by side comparison of some of the best recreational rc sail boats.
These are perfect models for sailing in your pool, pond, or a small lake.
For young kids, the Nikko Mariner Radio Control Sailboat is a good model to start with. It is cheap, and comes ready to run with an instructional video. Great inexpensive gifts.
But if you are looking for a bigger and more realistic radio controlled sailboat, I would have to recommend the Megatech Nirvana Racing Yacht. Is is simply, in my opinion, the best choice based on price and value.
