VERY cool- great looking boats- keep us posted. I'd love to see some of those come up this way! Do you use sail winches or arms for the sheet servo? Where can you get more information on these? Is anyone making them in US?

Hi DL Lawrence TY for your intrest, the boat uses a winch for the sails and one for the rudder. The boat at the moment is hand build here locally in Fajardo PR.one boat at a time! We have plans to mass produce them, but until we get the boat register as a one design with AMYA the 30 club members are the only ones that have these boats.Here is picture of the sealed control box

Wondering how much one of these beauties would sell for? Shipping would be a bit of an expense due to the size.
Are they being sold there as RTR or Almost ready to sail? Any additional details would be appreciated!!
Like to see some video of these boats in action. Looks like a good group you have there. Appears they
really love sailing!

Good stuff!

Boomer

Hi Boomer, At the moment you must be a active member to be able to purchase a X52. I cant give you the cost, reason that once we class the X52 as a one design with AMYA we plan to mass product them in the US so until we get the true cost we dont want to put a price out there. As far as for the group of guys 50% of them have real boats and yes they are great bunch of guys. Boomer if you lik check out our X52 club site www.prmyc.com the forum is in spanish but I'm slowly changing that I have some vids and picture there.

Boomer TY for your interest

The boat go's for about 1800.00 I think, I saw this boat about 2 years ago on there old website, and I just have to have one. Also tried to find any info I could on this website so when I saw this post I can say I want one someday. The website I found was (RCprosail.com) .FirstSergeant please keep us informed . Thanks Mike

M.G. Hello that site is no longer maintained, it was the original site about 4 years ago due to the lack of intrest within the first club members the club was disbanded. We now seem to have a new group of guys who want to see this take off.X52 are only being sold to club members at this moment No X52 will be sold oustside PR until we get it register with AMYA
Our new site is www.prmyc.com it is mostly in spanish its still kind new.I will continue to update here my ID at the site is also FirstSergeant.

TY for your intrest
