    There are few R/C modeling activities more peaceful than sailing a yacht on summer’s evening enjoying a gentle, constant breeze on your preferred pond. Likewise, few activities can be more exciting than racing like a captain in the America’s Cup, using a model yacht against similarly-equipped competitors that places your sailing skills to the test!

    Bancroft is pleased to offer the world-renown DragonFlite 95 V2 sailing yacht, a model perfectly suited to either activity. Manufactured by Joysway Model Co., it’s now available for sale through Motion RC!

    Available in both PNP (no transmitter or receiver) and RTR (includes transmitter and receiver) versions, these models arrive highly prefabricated and ready for final assembly and rigging.

    V2 improvements include a new, improved sail winch servo and a revised boat stand that allows both vertical or horizontal securement of the model for convenient storage, transport, and maintenance.

      It comes with a four channel transmitter and a five channel receiver. It does not need that many channels, that's just what is included in the box.

        I purchased the DF95 RTR kit from Motion RC about a month ago and have been on the learning curve twice a week wit our local Gilbert Model Yacht Club in Gilbert, Arizona. While I am learning the techniques of RC sailing, ii noticed that my DF95 does not respond to the movement of the sail winch line properly. When at max sheeted in position when I let it out gradually it does not move at all until at a certain point it jumps out about 4 inches. This is consistent. Also in the fully sheeted in position it will jump in and out a little bit on its own, without any movement of the stick. The rudder servo operates normally.

        I have a trouble ticket in with RC Motion but they have not responded to help figure out what is wrong.

        Any ideas from other DF95 sailors?
