What would be nice to see is a photo of one sailing along behind the "mothership", but most R/C yachts can't handle waves of much more than a foot.

I've been thinking about getting a basic R/C sailboat to play with, maybe a Nirvana, since it comes ready to sail out of the box.

Anybody got an opinion on these?

I know this is an old thread, but it's the most recent one I saw on the topic.



Also, I'd love to see pictures if anyone has any handbuilt models.

I have an East Coast 12 Meter - very technical boat. I do not race it but there are plenty of serious racers "out there".

Also have a Hudson 36 - a Dumas kit boat with fiberglass hull and deck that they stopped making many years ago.

I've "toyed" with the idea of buying one of those. (pun intended)

They've gotten decent online reviews and there is no way I'm sinking a grand in one of the ones they sell at the boat show.

I have an RC Laser. It is 40" long and scaled in every sense. Instead of just a dagger board it has a weighted bulb so simulate a skipper. I have sailed mine ins 25Kts (real) and it is great. And YES, 2 make for good racing fun. All you need is a nice local pond/lake. My vote is to go for it.

I also have a Huson 36. I built it over 20 years ago and it is great to sail when I have time. Are you interested in selling yours? I wanted to put together another one for my son so we could sail together when he gets old enough but as you know Dumas discontinued production. Please let me know.
