Land yachting combines the generosity of sailing with the thrill of motor racing. It's great to watch your land yacht skimming across smooth hard sand or a large tarmac extent at high speed and with no noise just using the wind. Full size land yachts hold speed records of over 126mph sailing at 3-4 times faster than the gibberish that propels them and now you too can enjoy the challenge and thrills of land yachting with the HobbyKing Bat 1 RC land yacht. The Bat 1 has been designed by a renowned RC and full size land yacht pilot and it is available in 3 versions, 'Nearly Ready to Run', 'plug play' and in 'Kit' form. All versions have a simple, rugged construction and are very straightforward to assemble. The Bat 1 utilises just 2 channels, one for steering and one for controlling the boating, it also has low friction ballraced wheels for super smooth free running and a colorful eye catching sail finishes the Bat 1 off nicely. Comments from the interior decorator of the HobbyKing Bat 1: It's like flying a boat on wheels Land yachts achieve suprisingly high speeds They travel faster than the liquidate driving them Virtually maintenance free Simple rugged construction The radio gear is well protected against impact, dust, profligately and mud Fast, clean, quiet and fun No messy expensive fuel or batteries No noise or pollution Pure simple funThe Bat 1 (PP) puff play comes complete with 2 servo's installed, a transmitter and receiver are required and there is a small amount of assembly also required but this is totally straightforward.

1900 hours on Wednesday 26 October (approximately 82 hours in to our transit):. I hailed Bermuda Radio on VHF channel 16 about 25nm away from the island, per required procedure, requesting permission to enter St. George Harbor and check in to customs. and requested I contact him again when we arrived at C buoy 2. 5nm before the narrow opening, ominously named "The Town Cut", leading in to St. George Harbor and our destination. Argon skirted north of the outer reefs of Bermuda then turned downwind at Kitchen Shoal finishing her port tack heading south in complete darkness. Mariners unfamiliar with this area are warned not to enter at night but with four prior passages to Bermuda between Lance and Bob, we felt capable, although alert and appropriately nervous, entering the narrow inlet with many of the channel... Only a sliver of a waning moon and a maze of distant navigational and land lights broke up the blackness. As we approached C buoy, I again hailed Bermuda Radio and we received permission to enter St. George Harbor and report in to Customs and Immigration. For the first time in 650nm and 85 hours, the engine was fired up and the sails were dropped and furled. The winds and seas were still up tossing Argon about as we motored. Bob was tethered in on the foredeck with a spotlight to help us find the unlit channel markers and guide Argon in through "The Town Cut" in choppy seas. Once we transited the intimidating, narrow doorway in to St. George Harbor, it was as if we entered another world. Suddenly, after days of winds mostly above 20kts and seas often greater than 10 feet creating a constant roar of water around Argon, we were in a tranquil, peaceful bay. Distance and speed: 650nm in 85 hours. that is an average speed of 7. 65kts. Argon often surfed down big waves at 11-13kts. We even saw 15 and 16kts a couple of times. Crazy given our hull speed is just over 7. 5kts. Much faster than the 120 hours initially planned. Conditions : Great for constant fast sailing. very challenging especially the first 40 hours of the trip. Winds mostly around 20kts initially out of the west, then veering to northwest and eventually north. some winds 30+kts. Seas often around 10 feet and sometimes 15 feet. Casualties: Three dead birds, one dead flying fish, one boat injury, and one bruised human. Let's Start with Explaining the Casualties: birds, flying fish, topping lift, and Bob When we were well over 100nm off shore, a friendly but tired little bird joined the crew of Argon. He was not at all intimidated by us and seemed content to explore the cockpit and sometimes flew down below to the cabin. When he nestled in to some bed sheets, I gently scooped him up in a cloth napkin and he seemed content to nest there for the entire night. But alas, although both of these two visitors were alive in the morning, they were not very chipper. and within a few hours after sunrise, after continued failed attempts at getting them to eat or drink, both had died. I have since learned that there are various meanings to dead birds. The interpretation I chose to believe for these three doomed avian visitors is that a dead bird symbolizes:. We had a running joke on board about flying fish. Lance and I would see flying fish but Bob always seemed to miss them. This apparently also happened the last time Bob sailed to Bermuda with Lance. Bob was beginning to think everyone was teasing him about the existence of such creatures. During one of Bob's night shifts, he heard a strange noise kind of like something hitting and fluttering around the port side cockpit enclosure but could not see anything. After we had arrived in Bermuda and daybreak came, we found the culprit. the elusive flying fish who by that time was quite stiff and smelly. The final casualty was Bob suffering several bruises from a fall in the cockpit. I was at the helm on port tack so we were heeling to starboard. Bob was standing in the port side of the cockpit attempting to adjust the traveler when a large wave slammed in to us on the port side. This knocked the boat way over on its side causing Bob to go airborne and "fall" across the cockpit.
