    If you think the rigging was a pain wait till you sail it.LOL Honestly, sailing is an art in itself. I highly recommend you find some other people to sail with. It is a million times more fun sailing with or competing against other model boats. My 15 year old daughter is a natural and wins quite a few regattas against adults. I guess all the video games pay off for something.
    Don't just fly--WREAK HAVOC!!!

            The DragonForce 65 and DragonFlite 95 are great Sailboats. Lots of organized Regattas thru out Texas just for the DF 95, and the DF 65 starting to compete again. The DF65 US National Championship Regatta was over the November 12th weekend in Dallas, at White Rock Lake (Trinity River Yacht Club With Trinity River Yacht Club | Facebook ).

            The AMYA Region 5 DF 95 Championships is this weekend in Corpus Christi, TX.
            (1) DF-95 REGION 5 CHAMPIONSHIP | Facebook
            December 3rd, 4th & 5th 2021
            Organizing Authorities: American Model Yachting Association (AMYA); DF-95 Class Owners Association
            Hosted By Corpus Christi Yacht Club (CCYC) AMYA Club 399
            98 Coopers Alley, Corpus Christi Texas 78401.

            MotionRC becoming another source in the US, will just enhance the following that has already been established.

            There are several support pages for both boats. and lots of great info on several dedicated Facebook pages.

            Class owners association links to Register Your Boats and secure your sail number.

            DragonForce 65 USA Class Owners Association – Online Portal for the DF65USA Class
            DragonFlite 95 USA Class Owners Association – Portal for the DF95 in the USA

            Sharpies work great for detailing Mylar and adding Sail Numbers. While some use vinyl for Class, County, Sail Numbers, Sharpies are the preferred choice. Paint and Vinyl tend to stiffen the sail area they are applied to. Which you dont want affecting the shape.
