Be for you purchase batteries an such do remember their are air and ground radio channels (being that you fly you know the routine) http://rcsource.hobbypeople.net/faqs/freqlist.htm 2.4 gig hetz? Boat size; the larger boats handle differently then the smaller ones you can scale size and weight but you can’t scale the wind or water that’s why I prefer the lager boats(that and I have a pick up truck) Their are a lots of starter kits on the market when you decide on size (will it fit into your car)maybe a used one just to get your feet wet ? I started with a ryobi kit that sailed just fine. got involved with local amya club they help out a lot
Most sail radios that I have seen only need 2 servos (rudder and sail winch ) believe it or not I use rayovac or the local brand and I sail all day (no power needed when sailing in a straight line )

I bought for a bought $ 500 back in the late 80s it was used but it was ready to sail. I redid the deck and painted it and a new set of sails, deck oal is 1 inch shy of 6 ft the mast is 80 inch and weight is aprox 40 lb that would not fit into most cars of today
Just post your findings and ask, most of the comments a helpful on this sight
