Following in the wake of the successful Dragon Force 65 yacht designed by three top RC designers John Tushingham, Mike Weston and Mark Dicks from the UK, several years ago they  released a larger 950 mm version known as the Dragon Flite 95 (DF95) manufactured by Joysway.

DF Development History

P1 DF95 class pgeupdate7Jan 21

Large fleets make for exciting, enjoyable and competitive racing at our club venue Emerald Lakes here on the Gold Coast

The popularity of this new design has rapidly spread across the world with some 6800 yachts now sailing and being enjoyed by sailors in many many countries.The DF95 skippers / boat owners  at PRYC find that these designers have succeeded with a truly well balanced and near perfect handling radio-controlled yacht. The beauty of the Dragon Flite 95, is being a strict one design class,thus sailing does not become an arms race where money rules. As a major attraction to this class and size of yacht is the reasonable purchase price, currently around $650 to $700 A$ for a complete boat with 3 sets of rigs and sails,plus electrics. We also have members who are willing to offerhelp and assistance with assembly of your new DF95.

The one design DF95 has a hull shape and sail plan which allows for excellent boat speed both up wind and when running before the breeze. 

You don't have to know how to sail remote controlled yachts as our more experienced skippers have positively accepted a mentoring role to the benefit of new club members whether they be young, or of the older generation, or people who may have a disability. Our race days are run by the global rules of sailing which helps made racing competitive and very satisfying. Please be assured that even if you are new to RC sailing, you will be made most welcome at the DF95 Fleet.
