After waiting some time I finally got my last 40 year birthday present: A Kyosho Fortune 612 III. Quite easy to put together and in my mind a very good looking boat. So far I have sailed it twice. It seems that I'll need some practice to become good at sailing her but so far I have enjoyed it. I have had one issue though: One of the wires would become trapped in the details, meaning I couldn't control the sail. So now I have mounted the crew to see if that solves the problem?
I have only done one modification so far: The receiver was replaced with a Spektrum MR200 so I can use the same transmitter that I usually use. Nothing wrong with the supplied receiver. I do have some ideas for modifications though
Some pictures of her. I hope you will enjoy her just as much as I do:
