The Joysway DragonForce 65, or DF65 for short, is by far currently the best selling RC yacht in the world. The reasons are as simple as the concept and design itself, which was developed in collaboration between Joysway and three top performance yacht designers (Mike Weston, Mark Dicks and John Tushingham) known as the group of three. This partnership has resulted in the DF65 which was first released in February 2013, an affordable competition class RC yacht that is so affordable it can enjoyed by serious competitors and non serious hobbyists alike. Sleek lines and competition-developed sails make the DragonForce 65 race, perform and compete against even those yachts that would be 10 times the price!

The DragonForce 65 is a recognised competition RC yacht that can be sailed in the restricted DF65 subclass, or may be sailed within the RG65 class with well defined rules and RC associations that are located worldwide. The boat is based on the ICE design with an ABS hull, profiled aluminium fin and moulded plastic rudder. The rig is a full sized, low aspect RG65 rig with carbon spars and a ball raced gooseneck.

The DF65 is ready to setup and race out of the box as a Ready To Run RC model, and comes with everything necessary to get started except for AA batteries (eight AA are required). Servo's, digital 2.4GHz transmitter and receiver are therefore all included along with sails, fittings etc.

Due to the boats popularity and success, there have been a number of gradual improvements to the design and manufacture of the Joysway 65 to make it even better. RCNZ currently stocks the latest V5 model revision that included the following modifications:

  • New pear-shaped mainsail luff ring, assisting to prevent the jib boom lifting cord from getting caught in the luff ring.
  • Improved bowsie design, for easier use and adjustment.
  • Finer pitched thread on compression strut for improved adjustment.
  • Added sail clew hook on jib boom and main boom for fast/improved rigging.
  • Replaced the 4th silicone tube on the jib boom, and the 3rd silicone tube on main boom with silicone rubber "O" rings for easier rigging.
  • Deleted the clip at top of forestay - it is considered better to tie the forestay cord, jib sail lifting cord and jib boom lifting cords directly to the forestay fitting. This also comforms with racing rules.
  • Re-written instruction manual to incorporate the above changes, and improved explanation of the rigging process.
