Special RTR DF95 now available from Dragon Sailing North America!

Due to popular demand , we have decided to offer a special Ready-To-Race version of the DragonFlite 95 featuring the Turnigy i6 transmitter to the Dragon Sailing Lineup! 

We have purchased a number of the excellent Turnigy i6 Transmitters / receivers. The Dragon Sailing team will  bind, install and set the end points for the transmitter and receiver, so when your new DF95 is delivered all you need to do is quickly assemble the

rig, plug in the batteries, and go! Bind plug and manual will be included in each package.

We feel the Turnigy i6 is one of the best values currently going for the radio sailing market and has excellent next generation features only found in radios usually three times the price! 

If you havent enjoyed a transmitter / receiver with telemetry voltage feedback that displays real time on the LCD screen...you will wonder how you sailed without it! Also the transmitter features a low profile internal antenna, so no more antenna breakage!

DragonFlite 95 Closeup - Keel Fin & Ballast

DragonFlite 95 Closeup - Keel Fin & Ballast

In the competitive radio sailing world, one of the key components top skippers look for to evaluate the quality of a boat  is the keel fin and ballast. The efficiency, balance, construction  of the keel fin and bulb are big determining factors how well a boat accelerates, its righting moment,  and ultimately how efficiently it moves through the water.

 DF95 lead designer, John Tushingham, combined  3D modeling, exhaustive testing and his  many years experience to create the specifications for Joysway Hobby to manufacture the effective foils and ballast of the DF95... and they have delivered!

The  100 gram carbon fiber keel fin is very stiff, and has an extremely efficient cross section that combine to give the DF95 good lift at low speed as well as good acceleration. 
The fin comes with nickle plated plugs that have been designed to be inserted into the keel fin, and provide a stable machined platform for the bolts to secure the ballast and secure the fin into the keel fin box in the hull.

Weighing 1000 grams , the design of the DF95 ballast is tried and true with a flat tail to dampen the vortices left from the trailing edge of the bulb. Since the boat is manufactured and imported , lead cannot be used for the bulb , but instead it is an alloy. 

The DragonFlite 95 will be available from Dragon Sailing February 2016 at www.radiosailing.net .
