Like a full size boat, have the kids build something that will sail well or they will loose interest soon. As a kid, me and my friend set some basic design rules and started our own mini Americas Cup. Most problems people have with cheap plastic RC boats is they don't protect the electronics very well.
Seal the reciever in a balloon with cable ties and silicon where the wires exit the balloon. For those who want a good, simple, and cheap timber RC boat that requires standard radio gear and no need for the expensive sail winch servo then check out these boats. They take a day or two to finish the rigging and install the radio gear and they preform well. I built one of their Soling one meter kits in the late 1980's and I remember that it was a very high quality kit with excellent instructions. Several of us at Solomons Island model Boat Club (aka SIMBC) have been building RG65 class boats. David, if you ned any pointers on doing the RC rigging, just end me an e-mail (it is on my web page or you can go through this board). Finding the original Tamiya Sail Crew set is diificult however the Tamiya Auto Pit Crew Set uses the same figures and actually has 2 additional figures. If you don't tack the crew, they will be swept away ( or drag feet) when on leeward side of boat !

All the RC gear was sealed in a lunchbox container and I dug out an area in the deck for it to sit in. Most of these designs come from South America, so a knowledge of Spanish is helpful but not necessary. I decided that the building experience was important so I bought a nice wood scale model kit and will make a go of getting it to sail. Al Suydam teaches a class that builds hard chined 36" boats and has almost everybody racing on Saturday morning. My boat with the figures is a design published (Amy)in Flying Model Magazine back in 1987, it was a preposed AMYA racing class but i do not believe it ever reached sanction status. One of the best of many good things about this Hobby is there is no end to learning new skills, knowledge and having fun.

Each crew member is wrapped in a sealed bag, and set in a protective tray which was also sealed from Tamiya. It doesn't come assembled or painted like the RTW crew) I think the tire changing crew are in positions to be adapted to a sailboat, easier than the racing pit team. I've seen many static display kits that would be very appealing, but precious few attractive RC sailboats that don't run into the hundreds.

I know it's not practical to biring your boat from Germany, but it would be pretty neat to have three of these beautiful boats sailing together!
