Intending no disrespect, I would suggest that two boats you have at the top of you list, are not worthy ofyour consideration. Theseboats are more toy like, than geniune RC Yachts.(That's what we like to call them) Those boats are typical of boats novices are drawn to, but most of them end up in a garage sale
. Whereas, a Nirvana is in my opinion the best overall value for a person just coming into the hobby for a number of reasons. First they are designed to be simple straight forward, easy to put together and just a whole lot fun to sail. Next most of the people who buy a Nirvana end up keeping it, and sailing it for years to come.
The Nirvana has an official AMYA racing class, which means, if you are so inclinded, you can get involved in class racing in local sailing clubs around the nation and around the world for thatmatter. The Nirvana, if you should opt to sell it, has the best resale value in it's class and beyond. You really get a lot of boat for the money.
They sell new from around $190 to $270 depending on where you buy it. Two of the best places are http://sailrc.com/sailrcnirvana/home.html
I suggest visiting another rc forum to read up on the Nirvana and just about any other RC Yacht you may have heard of, but didn't know how to find out about. Check out this link: http://www.rcgroups.com/sailboats-59
rcgroups.com is much more affective in RC Sailing than this forum. It would be well worth your time to visit this forum and check out the Nirvana thread at this link: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=794969
There are a number of very good boats out there that repsent better values.I am not shy about my view of theNirvana being the bestplace to start. Honestly, you should do a little more reading to discover what is out there, befpre you make adecision.
Have you establisheda budget for your boat? Is transportation an issue? Some folks have large cars or SUVs that make transporting their boats something to think of ahead of buying one. Again, the Nirvana is very easy to transport, so much so that my wife can take it apart and put it back together, so that should tell you how easy they are to set up.
I have had a lot of RC Sailboats/Yachts, some very expensive, the truth be told, I have two new Nirvana ll boats. I sold my first two after two years of sailing them. After a year, I missed sailing them and now I have two more. I got a pretty good deal by getting two. I guess that means I have put my money where my mouth is, or something
You can check out some of my RC toys by visiting my forum on this site. Just click on my login and the site should open up.
If you have any questions just let me know.I can offer a list of other boats that might be fun for you. And if you end up with eiter of the two boats you have listed, I hope you
I posted a picture of one of my new Nirvana'sfor your to consider.
