The A40 basic kit includes everything you need to get the boat ready for the water using easily found tools, glue, and sealant. The hulls and decks are integral, and the cross struts are assembled to them using provided bolts. The rig is complete with sails and all hardware. The kit comes with complete instructions and more are provided via web video. The kit includes 79 parts and produces a functional sailing catamaran, but no radio is included, and no wiring done.
The basic kit is really designed for the experienced model builder who plans to install his own radio components or who may want to alter the existing kit for the purpose of development. The basic kit is not recommended for the first time RC model builder.
