There are 16 DF95’s in South Africa with the first order arriving Mid May, with the fleet set to build over the coming months.

Des Fairbank is the Importer and he is also the Commodore of the Maritzburg Radio Yacht Club . He can be contacted on the following E-mail: desf@telkomsa.net

DF 95 Hull Number Decal - South Africa
All our boats have a hull number in sequential order and that is also your sail number. Here we have added a durable adhesive sticker onto the smooth plastic of the radio tray – hopefully if the boat evr changes hands there is a phone number where someone perhaps will phone us to let us know what has happened. If a Hull is replaced due to damage the hull number remains but with the suffix A, B, etc indicating a hull change and that is duly noted on the master register.

Now Listen Up!

So the new DF65 V6 was launched out in Germany at the Nuremberg toy fair back in early February and I’m sure many of you will have seen the excellent live video that Chuck put up which involved John Tushingham explaining the detail on the V6.

Since then the V6 has been made available worldwide, with all major distributors getting their stock and customers all over the world getting boxes in the mail.

To back up this new V6 version of the successful DF65 RC Yacht it was decided to give the rules a quick once over to cement the V6 properly into the class and also allow previous versions of the yacht to be modified with the new V6 radio tray. It was also decided that we should give the DF class a new rig to play with, the A+. There has been a lot of discussion about the new rig and not everyone is a fan but the reasoning behind it is sound and will allow better competition at all levels of racing.

A+ rig

So we have added the detail to the relevant pages which are, new V1.6 class rules, A+ rig template, new DF65 class logo and the new DF65 V6 rigging instructions. To find them please just hover over the DF65 heading on the menu and a drop down menu will appear.
