Graupner GR65 Radio Controled Model Sail Boat
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 Hull, deck, hatch cover and keel mast socket are made of vacuum-moulded CNC-machined ABS Info The Graupner/SJ range now also contains a model from the well-known RG65 regatta class in the form of the GR65. In spite of its unusually small size the GR65 is a full-value regatta model yacht which is controlled using all the usual functions. The technical requirements of the regatta scene are taken into account in the GR65. The GR65's compactsize makes it extremely easy to transport and the ideal choice for taking on holiday.

HISTORY: In the world of L C Ms the major players are the LCM-3, LCM-6, and LCM-8. The LCM-3 and LCM-6 are similar except the -3 is 50 feet long and the -6 is 56 feet long. The main use for the boat was hauling all sorts of cargo. The next step up would be either and LCU or LSU (Landing Craft Utility/Landing Ship Utility). By the time that the VN War cranked up, the LCM-3s were pretty worn out and were the basis of pusher boats around harbours. The LCM-6 was the main workhorse.

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 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.

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. Pack contents Factory-assembled Schottel drive system consisting of injection-moulded plastic components, servo mount, 65 mm Ø right-hand and left-hand propellers.

ARTR (Almost Ready To Run) Scale model of the first sea rescue cruiser featuring the current configuration (tower superstructure and separate daughter boat for shallow water operations). All subsequent cruisers have been built to the same layout. A total of four ships of the Theodor Heuss class have been built. On 12.02.1957 the cruiser was christened with the name of the German Federal President of the time, Theodor Heuss. The daughter boat was christened Tedje, which is the North German diminutive of the first name Theodor. The Theodor Heuss remained in service from 1957 to 1963 at Borkum, and from 1963 to 1985 at Laboe. The cruiser was subsequently sold, and is still sailing today as a motor yacht under the name Frido Spatz. The daughter boat has also been in private ownership since 1996, and is due to sail again after restoration. Previously it was set up as a display exhibit in front of the Norddeich rescue hangar. The Theodor Heuss which is on display in the German Museum in Munich is the renamed sister ship H.H. Meier. Top-quality model with superb detailing.

Originally a French corvette named L'Unite and armed with 24 nine-pound long guns, she was designed by M. Forfait and was built at Le Havre. Captured in 1796 by HMS Inconstant, L'Unite was rechristened HMS Surprise and converted by the British into a 28-gun sixth-rate, carrying 24 32-pound carronades on her main deck, eight more of the same on her quarter deck and forecastle, as well as 4 six-pound long guns as chasers.
She gained fame for the cutting-out expedition in 1799 of HMS Hermione. Hermione's crew had mutinied, and had sailed her into Spanish possession in Puerto Cabello. Captain Edward Hamilton of the Surprise led a boarding party to retake the Hermione from the mutineers and, after a sharp action, sailed her out of danger under Spanish gunfire back into British control. She was sold out of the Service in 1802.
