What's in the Bag:
Most of the boats that have come into NZ are of what we are now calling the "Kiwi Kit".
Included in this configuration is:
Boat, rudder and keel
3 Rigs - A,B and C (This includes 3 Sails, A mast, B mast and a long and short boom)
Radio Transmitter and Receiver
This should be all you would need to get sailing at any regatta.
Add a D Sail for very heavy weather. (This fits on the B mast and short boom)
Leave out the Radio Gear and source your own
Any combination - see the Shop at the www.radiosail.com.au site.
Feel free to contact us to disuss the right options for you.
Boats for NZ are bought through Australia and a Kiwi Kit delivered with all taxes paid should cost about $1,450 NZD.
This is very competitive when you consider the only other One Design RC yacht option is the Electron coming in at over $7,000 NZD
We are happy to arrange delivery of your boat and manage the payment to Australia on your behalf via our Paypal account.
Just contact us to arrange this.

Congratulations to Scott Mitchell for becoming the inaugural South Australian RC Laser champion, to Scott Fleming for coming second (on count-back) and to Andrew Reid for taking third place. See the full report from Adrian Heard here.
14 October 2017:
We would like to welcome 3 new boats into the NZ RC Laser Fleet.
Kerry Whittle, Dusty and Bill Trethewey have all bought boats in the last 6 weeks.
Kerry is in Auckland and a Campervan man.
Bill adds to the Northland fleet being based in Mangawhai and a good keen racing man.
Bill is originally from Christchurch and has come to live in the winterless (but wet and windy) North.
DustyDusty lives in Rotorua.
Dustys new boat was kindly brought down from Auckland recently by Mark - "Shakey"
Dusty is an extremely enthusiastic RC yachtsman and the photos were taken in his "ManCave"on a very wet day. (possibly one of the best mancaves in NZ I am told)
The following 2 days, the weather cleared, and 2 Lasers (Tim & Dustys) sailed in mixed fleets on Lake Rotorua & Lake Rotoiti.
