    I would like to see about ways to expand my sailing. I had a stroke about 14 years ago. I can only use my right arm and leg. My left arm and leg are weak. Is it possible to operate the radio control with one hand? Can one remain in a seated position to operate the radio control during the race or must one follow the boat? I am hoping to stay in one position on our dock or beach. Is there a stand for the boat before and after the race?

    Thanks for your advice and help.

      Hi Tom,

      Absolutely there is a way to RC sail with one hand. What we will do is set up a four channel radio to work on the right side only. To let the sails in and out, move the right stick up or down. To turn the rudder, move the right stick left and right.

      Many sailors sit while sailing, especially casual sailors. At regattas, there is usually more movement but some strategically place their chair or chairs to see all of the course from a chair.

      We look forward to sailing with you one day…

      Thank you for your question, Ashley.

      There are two versions of the RC Laser – one with a radio (Ready to Sail) and one without (Plug ‘n’ Play). They both come complete with two servos, one sail, one mast, one boom, one fully rigged hull, one rudder and one keel. The Ready to Sail version has a radio (transmitter that you hold to control the boat plus the receiver to go in the boat); the Plug ‘n’ Play version is set up to install your own receiver to work with your existing transmitter as many RC enthusiasts have a radio they prefer.

      Truly, neither are kits. You “put them together” in less than 5 minutes with no tools. Additional sails with matching masts and booms are available as well.

      To purchase one RC Laser, it is $585 for the Ready to Sail and $499 for the Plug ‘n’ Play. There are quantity discounts available – you can get a Plug ‘n’ Play RC Laser for as low as $394! And, currently, we offer free shipping for RC Lasers shipped within the 48 contiguous states.

      Feel free to call me if I can help further – 727-455-1332.

    These appear to be taking off in Australia, where do you buy them downunder, or what would it cost to ship one from the USA.
