Turnigy 610mm Fiberglass Racing Yacht Sailboat ARTR (AUS Warehouse)
Turnigy 610mm Fiberglass Racing Yacht
A beautifully crafted R/C sailboat, highy pre-assembled and Almost Ready To Run. All required items are installed, including mainsail winch, steering servo, all rigging and hardware. All you need to do is spend a few minutes assembly time on the bench, add your own receiver/battery and your ready to go!
Boat hull is based on an ocean going racing yacht and moulded in fibreglass with a perfect gelcoat and enamel painted finish.
Dont be mistaken in thinking these boats are slow and boaring. In a stiff breeze they can be extremely quick and perform turns rapidly, proving to be very exciting.

Hi mate, try putting extra tension on the back stay, having the mast tilt slightly towards the stern, I have same sort of issues with other RC yachts and thats always the first thing to correct the issue
Just had first sail of the Turnigy 610! It arrived well packed and construction was easy. The leach of the mainsail tends to curl and I plan to fix this by instaling battens.Overall I would rate the little racer at 5 stars!!Hobbydon.
Did you find the rudder and the keel, were not at 90-deg. to the hull? My keel is off to port, a 3-5degs, and the keel 5-7deg. Also, the mast plug was not glued to the deck* both rudder pushrods were installed with flex, thus tension on the servo* the winch servo didn't work from new* the Main sheet soon frayed on its fairlead. I also fitted leach battens, but, have now cut new sails [same shape]from clear plastic film, and used fibreglass tape in the corners. Plus f/g tape over the jib leading edge, enclosing a length of high strength cord. Now sails in gusty 15-20kts. It sailed well, steered well, as new. It sails 'true', down-wind, and is very reluctant to bury the nose. This small boat has 'class' potential.
