Sailing Model Land Yachts is a sport with a solid base of dedicated enthusiasts and racers who appreciate landsailing because it is easy to learn and challenging to master. It is an inexpensive sport; whether you're just beginning or a seasoned racer. Races involve groups ranging from local clubs to international competitors. And, it's environmentally friendly! In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management has rewarded racers and enthusiasts with special access to dry lakes for competitions. It's an increasingly popular sport that is enjoyed by a diverse range of people.
The models I have developed are the result of years of racing experience and technical knowledge of the particular mechanics of landsailers. While there are some similarities (both sailboat and landsailer have a sail, for example), there are some fairly distinct differences between them: most notably.......speed! Think of half a high-performance glider (airplane)....on edge and on wheels, and you're beginning to get the idea.
Stiletto is designed by three-time America's Landsailing Cup winner, long-time R/C modeler, and all-around interesting person Robert Weber. He has been landsailing since 1986 and has traveled the world for the sport: participating in international competitions in Europe and Australia.
