Hobbyking Angel 920 RC Sailboat 1840mm (Plug and Sail) Rescue Mission!
Mr Chai was out on his maiden voyage of the Hobbyking Angel Sail Boat, but upon launching, it seems that the bulb keel of the Hobbyking Angel sailing yacht is too light. When the sails catch the wind, the bulb keel is unable to hold down the yacht and tilted the yacht to one side.
This made the rudder ineffective in steering the yacht back to shore. Despite trying to steer the sailing yacht back to shore, it kept on drifting further and further.
2 rescue boats were activated but the conditions were just too bad for the rescue boats. Even an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle was deployed for the rescue misson! :D
Well all else in the rescue mission failed... The heros show up... delivering the sailing yacht back to shore. :D
Check out the rescue mission in this video. :D

Description from the website
Take a break from the norm, sit down and give RC sailboats a try. Don't be mistaken in thinking sailboats are slow and boring. In a stiff breeze they can be extremely quick and perform turns rapidly, proving to be very exciting. HobbyKing brings you the Angel 920, the perfect way to enter the exciting world of RC sailboats.
The Angel 920 sailboat comes plug and sail ready. Just install your own 2-channel surface radio, complete final assembly and go! Modeled after ocean going racing yachts, the Angel's hull is molded fiberglass composite with a perfect gelcoat and vibrant enamel painted finish. Supporting the colorfully printed rip-stop nylon main sail is a rugged aluminum main mast. All required items are installed, including mainsail winch, steering servo, rigging, sail and hardware. Protecting your expensive electronics is a water resistant hatch, hidden behind a faux passenger cabin. Dressing up the model are a few scale details like steering wheel and deck rails.
The weighted keel stabilizes the Angel, even in a stiff breeze, yet she'll keep going in lighter winds too. If you plan to sail predominately in strong winds, the weighted keel has a hollow cavity that allows you to add additional ballast if you so choose.
Lets head to the dock and see what she can do. On a warm summer afternoon there's nothing like sitting back, relaxing with a cold beverage and experiencing the thrill of sailing the Angel 920.
