Graupner GR65 Radio Controled Model Sail Boat

Graupner GR65 Radio Controled Model Sail Boat Description :

The GR65 is a sail yacht based on the RG65 class. The kit is assembled in just a few steps. Only minor work is needed for completion. Just a few additional components need to be purchased and installed in order to operate the model. The kit was developed with the latest design techniques on a 3D CAD/CAM system. All components are made of vacuum-moulded ABS and CNC-machined. The GR65 was designed to reflect developments on the regatta scene and it constitutes a model intended for ambitious regatta work. Hull, deck, hatch cover and keel mast socket are made of vacuum-moulded CNC-machined ABS. Many parts are pre-assembled so the GR65 can be set up quickly. The sails have to be mounted, because they are packed separately to avoid crinkling. The keel fin and rudder are injection-moulded in glass-fibre-reinforced plastic for outstanding stiffness.The slightly reduced surface areas and slim profiles of the fin and rudder result in less drag

Set contents: vacuum-moulded ABS parts for hull, deck, glass-fibre-reinforced plastic boatstand, rudder and keel fin, cast keel ballast, various injection-moulded plastic parts, carbon-fibre tubing for mast and booms, ready-made sail suit, polyester cord, small parts, instructions in German, English and French
Pre-sewn sail suit of white/red, lightweight sail fabric
Lightweight but stable rig constructed from CFRP tubing.
The rig consists of high-quality plastic fittings

This engine has been engineered to give a balance between the aesthetic appearance and sound engineering practice. Miniature roller races have been utilised extensively throughout; in total there are twenty nine used for the crankshaft, valve shaft, reversing gears, big ends and little ends. The result being that the bottom end of the engine requires very little lubrication other than minimal lubrication for the eccentric straps. This lends itself very clean and smooth operation together with low maintenance.
In an effort to simulate materials of the age, the block, steam chest and engine bed have been manufactured from aluminium which is then treated to give a textured finish. The components are subsequently hard anodised to BS5599. Hard anodising has a hardness approximating "sapphire" and is therefore very durable and wear resistant. This combination gives a finish that closely resembles that of cast iron. Pistons and slide valves are manufactured from complimentary materials which offer extremely good sealing characteristics combined with very low friction.
Stainless steel, brass and bronze are used extensively throughout the engine. As a result of this the engine is light weight, compact and powerful, offering the modeller an engine that looks authentic and is highly functional which should give years of untroubled enjoyment.

The Joysway Dragon Force 65 1mt RTS

Proving to be one of out most popular Sail boats

The Joysway Dragon Force 65 has been developed to introduce an affordable competition yacht to the RC market. A collaboration between Joysway and 3 top performance yacht designers (Mike Weston, Mark Dicks and John Tushingham) has resulted in Dragon Force 65. Sleek lines and competition developed sails make Dragon Force race perform and be competitive against even those yachts that would be 10 times the price!




The boat is based on the ICE design with an ABS hull, profiled aluminium fin and moulded plastic rudder. The rig is a full sized, low aspect RG65 rig with carbon spars and a ball raced gooseneck. The intention is to develop a set of rules to allow the Dragon Force 65 to sail as a restricted class within the RG65 class rules.

Back in stock !! Graupner Schottel Drive 2 Pt No 2335

Graupner Schottel Drive 2 Pt No 2335 The Schottel drive unit was developed by the Schottel company, and represents a modern and very capable method of propulsion for working ships whose duties require very high manoeuvrability, such as harbour tugs, ferries and other special-purpose vessels.
In contrast to conventional marine propulsion systems, with their separate propeller shaft and rudder systems, the Schottel system integrates both assemblies.
The propeller is mounted below the ship's bottom in a Kort nozzle which itself has the effect of increasing effective thrust. The nozzle can be swivelled around the vertical axis and the resultant flow of water can be directed in lieu of the vessel's rudder.
The Schottel drive unit II adopts the same working principles as the original design. Used in conjunction with the powerful SPEED 900 BB Torque 12 V elelctric motor, No. 6373, the unit's integral 3:1 reduction gearboxand specially matched 65 mm Ø propeller produce considerable propulsive power, making the system suitable for use in quite large heavy model boats.


The main assembly is made of plastic and is extremely strong. For direct control a powerful servo is required, installed in a special servo mount. If the servo travel is geared up to a ratio of 2:1 the swivel range of the nozzle is in the region of 180°, although the actual value will vary according to theservo you are using. There are no mechanical restrictions to the swivel range. The servo mount is attached adjacent to the shaft, and various positions are possible to suit the conditions inside your model.
