DragonForce 65 (DF65)

The DragonForce 65 is one of the fastest growing classes of Radio Controlled yachts worldwide. There are many reasons for the massive popularity of the boat. What initially attracts sailors to the boat is its low cost. At a cost around $200 for a ready to sail boat, including radio and receiver, it is the boat for those who want an excellent performance boat at a fraction of the cost of other boats.

While the boat is inexpensive, it does not sacrifice quality or performance. It is not just a starter boat but is one that is also sailed by experienced sailors.. As a strict one-design class you are sailing against equal boats in every respect.

Based on the RG65 and manufactured by Joysway there are well-supplied international distributors One being  Hobbywarehouse Australia. This means you have excellent access to boats, parts and accessories allowed in the class rules.
