Very good quality construction. Took quite a while to put together as instructions very typical Chinese translations.
Good value for the money
Took a little time to set up carefully. Well worth the investment. It sails beautifully.
Biggest bang for the $$ I've seen in a long time. Unit is in spectacular condition in a sophisticated packing box, Assembly instructions appear to have been written in non-translated English and are terrific. Parts and finish are excellent and first sailings are fantastic. Why kids waste time playing games with their thumbs when such amazing toys are available is beyond me. Kudos to rchobbiesoutlet for fast service and response to an inquiry also.
Arrived promptly in good shape, It took a while to tie all knots and thread bowsies. After waiting a week for the pond to thaw, everything went well, and second time there were other df65's there. Everthing works well and is a speedy boat
Great value! At under $300 this RC model yacht beats the competition. Build quality is excellent and it comes with everything you need to start rc sailing. I was also impressed with the transmitter-receiver range (at least 100m). There is quite a bit of assembly required but this was fun with the clear instruction manual. What you are left with is a serious model racing yacht with full range of adjustments for sail trimming to suit various wind conditions. Full marks Joysway!
Easy to assemble and contains good instructions.
This is my second DF65. Unfortunately one tiny piece was missing... the jib tack hook.
Well this one is a no-brainer. Look around the web and you'll see why this boat is so popular. This is a top quality racing sailboat with plenty of after sales support, you will not be disappointed. I had my boat shipped from Toronto to Tucson and I had it hand in just a few days. Rchobbiesoutlet is great to deal with. They answered my question immediately and I placed my order online without problems. Buy with confidence.
Great customer service. Quick delivery. And the Dragonforce 65 is a blast.
