RC Yachts come in all shapes and sizes however in general they can be grouped into three main categories:

- Ready to sail
- Complete but requires construction
- Ready built but requires radio equipment i.e. servos, receiver and transmitter.

Basic RC Yachts

Basic RC Yacht models often come ready to sail which means you can literally take them out of the box, charge the battery and sail them straight away. Slightly more advanced models may require you to install the radio control equipment that comes with the RC Yacht before launching though. This is a simple task and can be done within a matter of minutes in most cases.

RC Yacht models that are suitable for novice 'sailors' generally make use of 2 servos and a 2-channel transmitter. One servo controls the main jib (used to turn the sail and catch the wind) while the other controls the rudder, so allowing you to steer your RC Yacht. This type of novice model normally has a deep, weighted keel as well, just to add a bit of stability while out on the water. also look at, Radio Controlled Boat

RC Racing Yachts

RC Yachts that are used in competitions can only be described as vastly upgraded versions of their basic counterparts. It is possible to turn a basic model into a competition-ready RC Yacht but invariably it is cheaper to buy a decent model to start with and add the upgrades as needed.

- The mast and spar - basic models tend to have aluminium masts and spars whereas true racing models replace these with carbon , RC Clubs fibre parts designed to withstand faster sailing speeds and stronger winds.

- Fittings and sails - the sails in particular are much more robust on RC Yachts built for racing, plus they are manufactured from tear-resistant, light have a look at, RC Balsa weight materials.

- The fin and rudder - both are designed to enhance the handling of professional racing RC Yachts, while also making for a smoother ride through the water. try, RC Spinner

Competition-ready models tend to have a micro rudder servo, a micro jib adjuster servo plus an independent sail servo for much better handling of the yacht. Obviously this set up then requires a 3 channel transmitter and an upgraded receiver.
