Eric Schade, with assistance from Dave Jackson, developed this 48-inch long radio controlled model sailboat, which Eric has named the "Independence".  At least a hundred Independence yachts have been built in the US, Don't miss the videos of the Independence models in action!
Whether you want to join or create a group to race together, or want just to enjoy sailing around your local pond by yourself or with a friend, this boat will be a great introduction to sailing, and will continue to be fun for years to come.  Furthermore, since the Indy is a "One Design" class, your boat will be competitive with other Independence Class boats should you desire to race.
A powerful and responsive sailing model, the Indy is equipped with straightforward and inexpensive remote control technology (not included). It utilizes the same pre-cut plywood panels and stitch and glue construction as other CLC kits.
We offer a complete set of plans and manual for the home builder.  Alternativly we offer a CNC-cut wood parts kit.  The kit includeds pre-cut and drilled okoume marine plywood, timber parts and the instruction manual, as well as a supplementary list for what else you will need. The kit does not include the lead keel, hardware, sail, or R/C equipment (see details below). 
  • R/C equiptment is detailed in the instruction manual.  CLC like the following simple radio set-up, but alternative radio gear may also be used: Radio Futaba 2DR 2-channel and servo HS-785HB sail winch / rudder servo.
  • Lead bulb and rigging hardware kit is only available through Eric Schade and Shearwater Boats
