Chuck,
The jib boom dim "63mm" might want to be "83mm" in order to clear the mast. Mine won't clear at "63mm".
Thanks for the info on the A+ rig

I bought my first sailboat. DF65. The problem I am having is I can't get the receiver and radio to bind. The receiver blinks orange the goes off. The servos do not move. The radio is a Turnigy 9XR with Orange module and Orange GR300R receiver. Any ideas whats wrong?

You might want to submit that question to the Turnigy 9XR thread.

I'm no expert but as I recall you have to hold down the bind button on the Orange module a LONG time before it binds. There are also several modes in that module, make sure you have it set to the correct one for the RX.

So we have some fun RG65 racing going out in Gilbert AZ. Most of us fly electric planes and are members of the Gilbert Quiet Flyers. Well, a few bought Affinity's and I bought a DF65 V5. We call ourselves the Gilbert Quiet Flotilla and sail mainly at Crossroads Park. Here's a little action from today with me winning with the DF65

I played with it and couldn't get the receiver to bind so i gave up and bought a FlySky FS-i6 transmitter. See how this works when it gets here Thursday!
