I know that the keel, the bulb and the rudder of the affinity are practically the same as the Df65, but if I want to buy rudder or keel/bulb made for standard RG65 (like this rudder: http://www.mxcomponents.com/en/rudde...mone-mx-7.html) does it will fit?

you will have to modify the top of the fin to fit the keel box as the keel for a RG65 is thinner,
the rudder should fit, just need to modify the top so it matches the shape of the hull

What do you suggest me for electronics for the Affinity (I already have Futaba 6ex transmitter and Futaba R617FS receiver)?

Thanks

The Affinity comes with everything except the receiver and transmitter. You don't need servos or battery holder. Some people do upgrade to a Life battery pack.

This is what I did quickly to give the bag strength to protect rigs.

Thank you tougboat that is a perfect solution!!! I couldn't get my brain around reinforcing the side panels, your idea is nice and simple. I was thinking of somehow making a slit to slide it into the outer shell like a pocket. Simpler is nicer!

Dick, can't wait to hear some more especially Against the DF65!

I recently bought the Affinity and am working on rigging with my son. After seeing how cool it is i bought the Monsoon 1800mm as well so we can sail together. We are big into rc planes and buggies and this is our first sailboat.
I was wondering how the antennae should be routed/placed for best reception. Does it stay inside the hull?

My Seawind and DF95 just have them tucked inside the hull under the deck, one across & one lengthwise.
The sailboat will not be very far away, compared to your planes and even tucked inside, I can get clear across our lake ( a bit less than 1000 ft) with good reception, even when it is too far to see what is happening with it.
