That thing looks REALLY twitchy. Hope you have experience flying or it will be a very expensive lawn dart.
Yeah, a lot of EDF planes seem to be that way.

I'm thinking maybe if I put a sharp steel spike on the front it'll actually dart into the ground instead of smash into pieces like my hanger 9 f22.

Most seem to be in the 70-80MPH range.

For a 39 inch long replica of an americas cup the Kyosho Seawinds is about $300 for the boat, 50-60 for a radio and a quarter scale servo for a sail winch.

For a double masted schooner similar to the one in the other post the closest kit is a Robbie Valdivia. Probably $1500 or more. And isn't nearly as fun to sail as a Seawinds.

Do they sail easily/well?

I'd think scaling down a real ship would have odd results since the smaller you get the fabric gets disproportionally thick and less flexible than compared to the real thing.

The Seawinds sails great. The double masted scooner gets blown over easier so you have to be carful with wind. I also have a Kyosho Fairwinds that looks like a 40 foot cabin sailer that has a prop so if the wind stops blowing I can motor around.

The sail is a very light material. Some of the race boats use mylar sails not much thicker than paper.
