    RC Land Yacht plans

    I have been building scratchbuilt foamy planes for years but I am always fighting the wind so I thought it about time to build something that likes the wind.I am sure that there are people on these forums that have built their own rc land yacht so are there any free plans available.
    I have done a lot of searching and have come up with very little.It seems not to be very popular at the moment but I thought I would ask anyway.

    Thanks

    John

    You can try this site. All you would have to do is put wheels on it instead of skates.

    Hope this helps, they may have plans as well.

    RE: RC Land Yacht plans

    Hi John.

    I was in the same situation last year and decided to just build one from scatch after looking around for plans. I have built five now with a sixth in the process of making up. I have no plans at the moment as I drew up the outlines on my workbench. I went for the B class size. 1m long 750 wide and mast height 1,5 m. They just have basic two channel radio. I wanted to make it simple so I used standard wheels, axles etc. ( Du-Bro)
    Which can be bought at any model shop.
    I have had so much fun building them. They go like a rocket in a good wind.
    I want to have a demostration day with them soon and hopefully get some people interested to start a club or just regular racing.
    I will try and get some photos of them on the forum soon


    Regards

    Doug
