Motion RC

Radio Controlled (RC) Flying Wings

We offer an exciting range of RC flying wings, and there is something for everyone on offer, regardless of experience with the hobby. Carrying reputable and popular brands such as Freewing, Skynetic, and Nexa, Motion RC provides a sizable selection of graceful and stunning models in stock on our website. 

Many of our available RC flying wings include special features such as folding propellers, bolt-on wings, reinforced wings and fuselages, simplistic assembly, and brushless outrunner motors, just to name a few. While mostly available in white with vibrantly colored accents and decals, some of our models feature bedazzled and striking color schemes that immediately catch your attention — perfect for beginner flyers keen on keeping a close eye on their aircraft when airborne.

In the event of a crash or mishap, you can always turn to us at Motion RC. We’re always fully stocked with replacement parts that match your aircraft’s dimensions and structural composition. Whether you’ve thrown a propeller blade or bent a wing, we can easily provide replacement parts that will have you soaring through the skies in no time. Contact us today with any concerns so we can help you restore your RC glider or flying wing to perfect aerodynamic and operational condition!

Flying Wings are closely related to gliders, in that they are essentially high-lift aircraft without fuselages. Their unique shape and size make them an ideal platform for a first-person view (FPV) setup. Flying wings also are widely available in smaller variations that can be used for dogfighting and racing, which is always a thrill!

and it is the same for the "-' button.

FAQs About RC Sailboats

If you do not see your question, or an answer to it, listed below, get in touch with us and we’ll happily give you one!

How do RC Sailboats work?

RC Sailboats work through radio control, which is a given considering the “RC” in the name, and a bit of skill. You need to steer, draw the sail, etc. Interestingly enough, it’s a lot like sailing a real sailboat, but you’re using a controller to do it.

This is where the skill part comes in. Drawing the sails, for example, requires timing and precision to ensure that you’re doing it properly. If you don’t, you face it sinking, should the model be a very extensive one, or not sailing properly at all.


Where can I race a RC Sailboat?

You can race a RC Sailboat virtually anywhere. Although, racing in the ocean may not be the best idea if you’re very invested, both emotionally and financially, in your boat.

This is where lines come in. A lot of users will have a line system to ensure that if there is a crash and their boat sinks, or whatever the case may be, they can still retrieve their vessel without actually having to go into the water.

Are there are RC Sailboats that use wind?

Yes! Some RC Sailboats do not use electricity or a motor as a source to run. Some only work with windy weather, but still require a controller for steering, drawing the sails, etc.

What happens when the wind stops?

This is another instance where a tow line comes in handy. If the wind stops you have two options – wait for it to come back, or use your tow line to reel it back in. Some users have small tugboats that are able to go out and retrieve a RC Sailboat that has a downed sail, has stalled, etc.

What if it tips?

If your RC Sailboats tips, it’s obviously not a very good one. The good quality ones have something at the bottom to ensure this doesn’t happen unless it’s hit by another one, has a hole in the side, etc.

It may tip into the water from the wind or have the bow go under water, but it should not tip on its side completely in any instance other than one of the reasons previously mentioned.

If it does tip, reel it in using your tow line or go into the water and get it.

Hej! Have you found something? I search for a rc sailboat that I can transport with my bicicle.

Hi Annette, I too am looking for a 1 meter or 3 foot sailboat. Had a “Tradewinds” that was 3 feet long and loved it! BUT, the 5 pound center board weight (I used BB’s) was hard to find…. Want to get one so it can be sailed in the pond/small lake outside. A friend got one too and we used to “race”. But, we had no buoys – there are usually two or three and depends on the size of the boat.

In the Chicago area, Wisconsin, Chicago, Indiana (Munster), Michigan, and Florida (about 20 miles from Orlando) – we were lucky and I was sailing anywhere from 13′ to 45′ boats. People that did not know me were freaked out when I could sail.

Another boat makes sense here. And, if I had two, then another person can sail too. And, I can make buoys that are needed to race boats. Hmm, that is a good idea.

I am a former professional licensed Captain, sailboat dealer and racer who is now landlocked. Looking to start RC sailing, but prefer to identify key class associations, publications and such information to make sure there is a strong RC class or one design to guide me. Looking forward to guidance first, then back on the water the right way.

My 18-year-old sails 420s and Lasers competitively, and is now asking for a r/c sailboat for Christmas. He has never used one before, but thinks the idea sounds fun. He is engineer-minded, grew up rigging and racing. We live on a bay off the ocean. Can anyone recommend a r/c sailboat $300 or less?

Click the picture to get to the boat's page Sailboats Sailboats use the power of the wind acting on sails to propel the boat. Model sailboats are typically controlled via a multi-channel radio transmitter in the hands of the operator with a corresponding receiver in the boat. By changing the position of the two joysticks on the transmitter signals are sent over two separate channels on a single radio frequency (assigned to the individual boat/operator). On the boat, the radio receiver is connected to two battery powered electric motors or servos. Signals from the radio transmitter are interpreted by the radio receiver and translated into instructions to change the position of the servos. One servo controls the position of both main and jib sails together (allowing the sails to be trimmed), the other the position of the rudder (allowing the boat to be steered).

Sailing Monohulls Model sail boats are governed by the same ISAF (International Sailing Federation) Racing Rules of Sailing that are used for full sized crewed sailing boats (with the inclusion of Appendix E, that introduces special rules to govern the radio-controlled sport). There are four international classes of radio sailing boats recognized by the ISAF-Radio Sailing Division and several other international monohull classes: (from smallest to largest). - International RG65 RG65 are monohulls with maximum lenght of 650mm, three different rigs allowed with a maximum sail area 2250 cm² - International One Metre (IOM) The IOM class rules specify a monohull of maximum length 1000 mm, with maximum draught 420 mm. There is a minimum weight of 4000 g, which makes homebuilding of competitive boats possible. The IOM has three one-design rigs. To keep costs down, hull materials are restricted to either wood or glassfiber, while masts and booms are restricted to either aluminium or wood. - International Marblehead (M) Maximum length: 1290 mm. Maximum draught: ca 700 mm. Up to six rigs are allowed, the tallest being about 2200 mm. - International Ten Rater (10R) - International A Class (A), the largest of the international radio sailing classes.

Sailing Multihulls There are several multihull classes, one of the most popular multihull classes is the Mini40 class or F48 with 48inch maximum lenght and 48 inch maximum beam . Other classes are the 2m class, the new MultiOne 1metre class and the very new 65M multihull class . The 65M is a very exciting class with well sailing, small and easy to transport multihulls. Multihull classes from smallest to largest: - 65M Class In 2008 some multihullers on various bulletin boards discussed building RG65 sized multihulls. The 65M class evolved with no other rules than overall lenght not exceeding 650mm. First designs came up in 2009 by Siri, who let Ernst Zemann a multihull designer draw two different hulls and Dick Lemke who started a Trimaran and a Catamaran. Several new designs followed. The 65Ms sail well, are easy to be transported and inexpensive compared to larger multihulls. - 65M Class The class homepage is here , new boats can be registered here , selfbuilding plans can be downloaded on this site for free. - MultiOne Class Multihulls with 1m length, unfortunately the class Homepage is not accessible any more. - Mini40 Class Popular multihull class with boats not exceeding 1220mm in length and a maximum beam of 1220mm. - 2m Class Multihull class with boats not exceeding 2 metres in length with a maximum beam of 2 meters and a maximum mast height of 2,8 meters. There are no restrictions on sail area.

Radio controlled racing boats are designed for maximum speed and maneuverability. Various syles of racing include circuits of different shapes laid out on the water with buoys. The most common courses are the 1/6th mile oval that consists of 330' straight sections followed by 70' diameter turns. The International Model Power Boat Association (IMPBA) as well as the North American Model Boat Association (NAMBA) have specific rules and regulations to address the course, race rules, and formats. In addition to oval racing there are straight a way (SAW) racing. This is a contest to see how fast you can make the boat go in a straight line. Timed events are held where the boats need to go through a starting light and an ending light. The speed is calculated by the timed difference from start to stop vs the length between the lights. Again IMPBA and NAMBA rules apply. Some enthusiasts race in the sea controlling their craft from a pursuing boat known as a "chase boat". These courses will usually be a few miles long and the competition is judged against the clock to find the fastest in class. Within the various styles of racing there will be a number of classes depending upon engine size and type.

I have often admired the quiet, graceful way radio control sailboats glide across the water at my local pond, using only wind power. So much so that I decided to find out more, and I did a lot of digging into RC sailboats for beginners, and what I should buy. Here’s the result of my research – I hope it helps you!

RC Sailboats For Beginners – Top Picks

It’s difficult to conclude which sailboat might be best for beginners, as it all depends on how serious you want to take the hobby, and in particular whether you’ll want to race it eventually.

One good way of approaching this is to join a club ( US ) ( UK ) and get to chat with other members about their experiences. However, if you’re not the joining type, or just want to get on to your local pond as quickly as possible, here’s a selection of RC sailboats you might like.

We’ve scoured the web for advice on club sites and forums to back up our choices, so you shouldn’t be disappointed. As a beginner, you’ll probably want to choose a boat that is ready to sail (RTS), with very little, if anything, to do before getting out onto the water. Avoid boats that require a lot of assembly, save for inserting the main sail and batteries.

So, if you’re short of time, here’s the top pick 3 RC sailboats for beginners we’ve found:

Any recommendations we make are always based on either products we already own and use, or are carefully assessed in terms of their attributes and user feedback – criteria we use ourselves whenever we buy. Where products sold by Amazon are suggested, they will have the following criteria at the time of writing, unless there are no alternatives available:

  • Minimum of 4 stars
  • No more than 10% of all reviews are 1 or 2 stars
  • The product has a minimum of 100 reviews

We also highly rate products that have free shipping or are sold through Amazon Prime.


Look out for a ready to sail (RTS) or even a Ready to Race (RTR) model. Go for a model which has everything included (probably apart from the AA batteries for the transmitter – some beginners’ models even has these!)

Check out your local club, to see what they sail there. That way, you’ll get advice on what to buy, and consider a boat which others in the club race. It’s much more fun if you can participate in club racing. Find where your nearest club is by talking to your local hobby shop, or by contacting the American Model Yachting Association  here or the Model Yachting Association in the UK, here .

If you feel particularly ambitious, you could consider buying an RC sailboat kit. More about that here .

A radio controlled sailboat is one that can be sailed and controlled remotely with radio control equipment to monitor and chart its course. You can find easy, ready-to-use sailboats available, pre-built to include a radio, along with other receivers and servos, an electric motor, and all the other fittings and accessories needed. 

The transmitter, the thing you hold in your hands as your boat is sailing, usually operates on a 2.4 GHz frequency, and either has a wheel-like controller to control the boat’s steering or a couple of sticks that control the steering and the position of the sails.

A common setup involves 2 channels – one for the rudder control, and the other for the sails. The right stick moves left or right, and usually controls the rudder (making the boat go left or right), whilst the left stick, moving up and down, controls the sails (moving them in, or out).

The transmitter sends a signal to a receiver in the boat; depending on the type of signal (ie whether it is a steering command, or a sail command) to tell onboard batteries (usually Ni-MH or Li-Po type) to power a servo (ie something which translates an electrical signal into a mechanical signal) to move either the rudder left or right, or the sails in or out.

Whilst purists may consider a radio controlled sailboat should use only wind power, rather than electric to move it through the water, some do have the benefit of having an electric motor, either as a backup for when the boat is becalmed or for those tricky maneuvers when bringing it back to the pontoon.

The electric motor, connected to the shaft that runs towards the back of the boat  is usually at the front end of the boat. It also happens to contain a grease-filled stuffing tube that is used to provide lubrication as well as to prevent water from entering into the hull.

The propeller is usually to be found at the end of the shaft.

All the sensitive electronic equipment in the boat is protected by waterproof membranes or casings, for obvious reasons.

What Are The Main Components of an RC Sailboat?

Most model RC sailboats for beginners come with built in nickel-metal hydride (Ni-MH) batteries, although some also come with the costlier, more powerful Lithium Polymer (Li-Po) batteries. Lithium Polymer batteries are lighter as well and have a high capacity, which makes them ideal for longer runs. To learn more about batteries for rc models, click here .

Lead Acid batteries are used in larger models, and use the weight for ballast to deliver a clean source of power. 

The most common type of  Transmitter  for RC sailboats are the stick-type transmitters that allow for easy use and control over the sails and rudder. The Transmitter is held in your hands, and is usually set on a common frequency, such as 2.4 Mhz.

The  Receiver , which is positioned inside the hull of the remote control boat,  is the part that is responsible for converting radio signals from the transmitter to an electric signal used to control the rudder and sails.

A Servo switch  converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. In beginner radio control sailboats one servo moves the rudder, and another is the sail servo.

There are usually two popular choices of electric motors used in RC Sailboats. The first is a brushless motor that is known to give high speed but poor low end speed control. If you do have a brushless motor, it is generally recommended that a matched pair of motor and electronic speed controls be bought.

The second, the brushed motors, have good low end control and are available from low speed, high torque to high speed, lower torque.

Flexible shafts are often used in racing RC sailboats, but need to be carefully picked in accordance to size and mounting configuration in the hull.

Here’s a brief, step-by-step of how to work RC sailboats for beginners. For a more detailed step by step guide on sailing an RC sailboat, click here .

Clean and tension the rigging whilst it’s on its cradle (A lot of model beginner rc sailboats are sold with a cradle to make it easier to work on the boat whilst it’s out of the water, or they are available separately).

Ensure the battery or batteries are charged and check the functioning of the radio control equipment.

Check the wind and the direction it is blowing. RC sailboats are usually pretty light in weight so you will need to watch out for whether your sailboat can withstand the winds prevailing at the time.

Equally, watch out for conditions which are too calm – this can be very frustrating as the boat languishes becalmed!

Avoid river sailing when you’re a beginner – the currents may be strong and make control difficult.

Also avoid ponds, lakes, and bodies of water with a lot of vegetation – both seen (on the surface) and unseen (under the surface). Weeds may catch the keel and or rudder, stranding the RC yacht out of reach.

Never sail near swimmers, bathers, and people fishing, particularly if you’re still learning to control it properly.

Your boat will have to sail upwind when you set it off from the dock. Just place it in the water, turn the bow slightly away from the side of the pond or pier and tighten the sails acting on the left joystick, allowing the wind to power the sails and propel the sailboat forward.

You can always stop the sailboat by tuning the bow into the wind and letting go of the sails control line to release the wind pressure off of the sails and pull the boat to a halt.

To return, make sure your sailboat is sailing windward (ie into the wind). As the boat nears the pier, release the sails to reduce the boat’s speed.

The more experience you get of sailing an RC sailboat, the more you’ll enjoy it. I was told to just do it – the more mistakes you make the better – and sooner –  you’ll learn.

The popularity of this amazing hobby means you’re never alone unless you want to be. RC sailing clubs are great places for newbies and experienced RC skippers alike.

Knowing how to control the boat in different conditions is where the real skill comes in. It’s all about timing and precision. And the better you get as an RC sailor, the more enjoyable the experience.

With a steady hand, practice and a good and thorough knowledge of the ins and outs of how it works, there is no reason why, with a few days of hard training, preferably from an expert, a beginner shouldn’t get the hang of sailing one.

rc sailboats for beginners

As a beginner, you may want to get familiar with the general aspects of rc sailing before entering races. Nevertheless, racing rc sailboats is an exciting hobby, and will no doubt provide a sociable way of testing your skills.

The best way to further this aspect of the hobby is to join a club, details of which will be held with your local hobby shop, or check out a local club near you. You’ll find lots of help finding a club, as well as sailing your boat, at the  American Model Yachting Association and the Model Yachting Association in the UK.

The official body overseeing RC sailboat racing internationally is the  International Radio Sailing Association .

Once you get into it, racing provides a set of rigorous rules to sail by. There are specific classes of racing boats, generally denoted by a short letter/number combination. For example, the EC R12M class is found predominantly in the USA, EC standing for East Coast, with a hull length of between 58 and 60 in.

Other classes include the R1M, which requires hulls of 1 m in length. A good example of this is the Robbe Windstar.

Some clubs organize races for particular models, such as the Kyosho Fairwind.

A common racing standard is the Dragonforce 65 class. This type of boat is readily available and ready to sail. See the table above. Here’s a short video showing some exciting DF65 racing:

How Do I Get Started with Radio Control Sailboats?

Your best bet when starting out, as I found, is to look for a local club, and join it. That way you’ll get lots of advice which will probably save you hundreds of dollars in the long run.

If you’re not the joining type, head over to your nearest pond, lake or resevoir and see if there are rc sailors on the water, and if so get talking to them. They’ll certainly be enthusiastic and willing to help.

About the author

It all started with a line controlled spitfire 50 years ago….

That turned into a life long interest in models, in particular radio controlled models, but I’ve only got back into it since I’ve been retired. As a result a lot has changed, and I’ve been happily starting afresh, researching into the hobby and finding answers to the questions all beginners have when starting out.

I hope you find some answers to the queries you have, and go on to enjoy all aspects of this fascinating hobby.

Wallywind110 Sailing Yacht

Founded by Italian entrepreneur Luca Bassani in 1994, Wally initially specialized in sailing boats but has since expanded into building high-tech motor yachts . The new wallywind110, which was fittingly launched on the yard’s 30th anniversary, honors that sailing legacy yet is thoroughly modern in design.

Measuring 100 feet from sheer bow to open stern, the newcomer features a sleek carbon hull, a low-profile coachroof, twin rudders, and a telescopic keel. Showcasing naval architecture German firm Judel/Vrolijk & Co, the first hull is finished in a bright metallic paint that changes color depending on the light.

Wally’s in-house design team worked with Italian firm Santa Maria Magnolfi to create an exterior and interior with a spacious feel. The team decided to relocate all the technical equipment to the stern in order to create a large, 860-square-foot cockpit comparable to that of a sailing superyacht of 197 feet or more. The interior layout includes multiple entertaining areas, an open-plan salon, a full-beam owner’s cabin, three guest cabins, an office, and accommodation for five crew.

The second wallywind110 is already under construction, with delivery expected soon.
