The DragonForce concept was initially conceived quite a few years back by John Tushingham and Mike Weston who had a desire to produce an affordable radio sailing yacht which sailed well, had all the tuning aids that a larger radio yacht had and that was available off the shelf so that fleets could grow quickly.
The concept came to fruition in 2013 with the DF65, based on the Ice RG65 by Mark Dicks. Produced by Joysway Hobby Co in China the DF65 was an instant hit and the class continues to grow at a high rate.
The “Restricted” class rules ensure that all boats, irrespective of their age, can compete on a level plying field. Modification to the boat, rigging or sail design are prohibited making it a perfect class for all abilities.
Catsails have been making sails and accessories for these boats since they were first launched and our sails can bee seen on may boats, including national championship willing boats. Please visit our online shop or contact us to find out more.
