Dragen sailboat new build
« on: February 02, 2013, 11:18:34 AM »

Hello out there!     I am new to the hobby thanks to my wife who thought I needed a hobby in retirement!    My query is twofold, I am building a Billings Dragen 528 sailboat but I want to sail it on occasion so I need help and advice on..
a/ What modifications do I need to do to the model to sail it,if any,and how do I go about this?
b/ I also want to make it R/C so again what do I need to do and how?
Every model shop in my area ,Coventry , seem to be R/C Cars so advice is patchy.
