Thread: RCSails FireDragon 1000 - Maiden Voyage

  1. #1

    Default RCSails FireDragon 1000 - Maiden Voyage

    Yesterday I sailed my newest trimaran design for the first time.
    The boat is 1000mm long and wide, it can be sailed with a full Mini40/F48 rig in the F48/Mini40 Class or with a smaller rig in the MultiOne Class.
    The FireDragon 1000 can be equipped with optional foils for some foiling experience.

    Below find some Pictures and a video clip of the maiden.

    Hi Roland!

    Looks good, quite fast and stable!
    Congratulations!

    Is this a one-off - or did you make molds for it allready?
    When will kits of it be available and for what prize?
    Estimated shipping fees?

    And very important:
    Whats the overall weight now?

    Many questions - I know...

    ...but Im looking forward to get your answers.

    Keep on rocking,
    Ernst

    Hi Ernst,
    long time not heard from you.
    This boat is the first off the new molds - the prototype did sail in October last year. A platform kit and rig kits are available at RCSails list price is not much different from the Mini40 kits - the first boats receive a special discount until mid of April. International shipping by Economy Airmail depends on the location and is between $100 - $150 to most locations.
    The FireDragon1000 can compete in both the Mini40 and the MultiOne class, in my clip it is rigged with the full 0.9sqm Mini40 rig. I have not checked the weight it should be around 3kgs.

    Cheers
    Roland

    I have made available free self builder plans for the FireDragon1000 in the Plans section of RCSails Shop.
