    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…

    Is there only the one laser kit thats avalible or are there a number of different kits .Does the kit contain all the sails the servos and receiver and radioetc. and how much to purchase .

    1. Theresa Rae Gay Post author

      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.

    1. Theresa Rae Gay Post author

      Absolutely! You have an amazing distributor in Australia making that all happen. Click here to go to Cliff Bromiley’s site.

    What is the basic set for a boat with an A rig.
    What is the suitable winch servo needed and how much is the shipping cost to Malaysia?
    For club purchases, how many boat sets could fit into the same shipping package to save shipping cost?

    1. Theresa Rae Gay Post author

      Hi Zack,
      Our RC Lasers come complete with installed servos in the rigged hull (Hitec 785 is the sail servo and Hitec 311 is the steering servo approved for sanctioned RC Laser races internationally), B mast, B sail, standard boom, keel and rudder all placed in a custom made bag with pockets for the sails (to prevent uncorrectable folds), keel, rudder, radio and hull along with a pocket for the radio (radio is optional) and a velcro loop to hold the masts. The bag will fit all 4 sails (it only comes with one) and rigging for 4 sails if desired.

      What we call the A rig is the A mast and the A sail. The A sail is the only sail that requires its own mast due to the height of the sail. We sell the A rig for $105. Add that to the RC Laser with radio and it is $549 + $105 = $654. Add to RC Laser without radio (if you have one already) and it is $489 + $105 = $594.

      Each RC Laser comes packed in its bag within a box then 2 per case. Considering we have shipped over 10,000 of these boats, we know the best options for shipping – 2 per case gets you the best shipping rate. More together would make the shipping box so big that it would cost remarkably more.

      Shipping to Malaysia – I will refer you to our fellow distributor in Australia. Cliff Bromiley will take great care of you and can ship much cheaper from Australia then we can ship from here. Click here to go to his website where you can send him a message and check prices.

      Thank you for your questions – looks like Malaysia is the perfect place for RC Lasers!

    How do I get all the water out of my boat a little squeeze go most but there is some left

    1. Theresa Rae Gay Post author

      Thank you for your question, Ken.

      A little bit of water will not affect sailing and will likely steam out. As that water is not in the same cavity as your electronics and cannot get to the cavity containing the electronics, it isn’t really worth worrying about.

      Hope to see you out on the water soon – Theresa Rae Gay

      Hi Bob,

      I will email you the manual for the RC Laser. And YES!!! There is definitely a market for used RC Lasers. If you put it in our Sea Flea Market, it will get hundreds of looks very quickly. The RC Lasers in our Sea Flea Market sell quickly!
