What We Race
DragonFlite 95 - One Design
More Information about this Class
The DragonFlite 95 is a Restricted One Design boat that is meant to compete within a strict set of rules to ensure a true test of a skipper's ability to tune their boat and race it well. Additionally, this 950mm boat is of high quality for a modest price. The DF95 is sold ready to race which includes transmitter and receiver, just add AA batteries. For those already in the hobby, a boat without transmitter and receiver can be purchased. The DF95 comes with a carbon fiber keel, Mylar sails, and a one piece carbon mast, all cutting edge components. It can be on the water in a few hours and assembled by a person with no experience building boats.
EC-12 - One Design
More Information about this Class

The EC-12M is one of the one-design classes comprising the AMYA-recognized fleet. Class specifications govern virtually every aspect of these yachts from hull and sail design to permitted remote controlled functions. Approximately 5 feet long, with a mast standing about six feet over the deck, the EC-12M weighs in at about twenty-three pounds.

Originally a towing tank model for a Charley Morgan twelve meter, the EC-12M can be transported in all but the smallest of cars, sailed in shallow waters, and in winds from mere zephyrs to light gales. The hull is shaped so as to shed dead leaves and other flotsam, an important feature when sailing on inland lakes and ponds.

IOM - One Design
More Information about this Class
The versatile International One Metre (IOM) is one of the most popular class in the radio sailing world, and many USA sailors enjoy regular travel for competition. Others prefer local sailing, and local fleets are the class backbone. USA's annual Nationals began in 1998. The class formed in the late 1980s, specifying three (3) one-design rigs with the hull/foils controlled by box rule. This format encourages evolution and created our highly refined fleet of today, where creative skippers continue to test new ideas. We race in the lightest breeze up to very strong winds and waves, where we need our smallest rig up to 35-40 knots. The hull weight limit allows amateur designers/builders to carefully create competitive IOMs and test their mettle against the best commercially available. Besides our plethora of purchase options, we have a recent global boom in home-built woody hulls now too. While the most skilled skippers usually win the regatta, no single design dominates our World Championships on even years.
Soling 1 Meter - One Design
More Information about this Class
The AMYA Soling 1 Meter Class TM was first sanctioned by the AMYA in 1993. With over 13000 kits sold, and some 4000 boats registered, you can find a Club sailing the AMYA Soling 1 Meter in ALL 7 AMYA Regions, and three Provinces in Canada. Over 60 USA and Canadian Clubs list the Soling 1 Meter as the one or the only boat that they support.
Something like 50% of ALL RC sailors own at least one Soling!! Over thirty years since being AMYA-sanctioned, the "Soling" has been a Class that offered top competition at the local, Regional, and USA as well as Canadian National Championship levels.
Performance: AMYA Soling 1 Meters point high, sail fast, and resist "submarining" like some other more narrow and lighter boats. On a fresh reach fresh or run, the boat gives her skipper fully controlled, exhilarating performance. The fin keel draws only about 8" of water, so the Soling 1 Meter can be launched from a shore without wading, as well as from a dock. And, the Soling resists snagging pond weeds- she can almost always be sailed back to shore, instead of having to be rescued by rowboat.
Low total cost: Unlike many RC boats, the Soling can be sailed in winds from near zero to over 20 MPH, using a single rig. The Soling 1 Meter Class allows one rig, using lower cost flat-paneled polyester sails. This saves hundreds of dollars for additional rig sand sails required to be bought to compete in most other popular designs.
Soling 1 Meter is a true One-Design: All aspects related to performance are intended to be restricted to what can be achieved by building a Kit straight from the manufacturer's plans. (The Soling 1 Meter Class Rules may be downloaded from the links table on this page.)
New Solings must be built from a kit available only from one of two Class-approved manufacturers. 3DRC Boats, and Vac-U-Boats offer unassembled or Almost ready to Sail kits that can be finished in about 12 hours by virtually anyone. Used or New kits by Victor Model Products (made through 2019, but no longer available as new) are fully approved as well.
Made in the USA: All Solings, since the first off the mold, have been made in the USA.
