The Helion Aura 650 Sailboat is perfect for both the experienced RC skipper as well as those that are just starting to get their feet wet. The Aura 650's hull is made from durable blow-molded ABS for added strength and has an attractive pre-applied trim on both the hull and sail that lets it stand out on the water like a full-size sailboat. It also comes pre-assembled and partially pre-rigged to help make it easy to get on the water. Plus, the Aura is the ideal size for sailing on nearly any body of water and small enough to transport back and forth in either the back seat or trunk of your car.
The Aura 650 is a RTR boat, so everything you need to get started is included in the box - including a 2.4GHz radio system, a 17 gram "drum style" sail winch servo, and rip-stop nylon sails that provide durability and great performance. Even the 8 AA batteries (4 for the transmitter and 4 to power the servos) that you need to operate the boat are included so you won't have long to wait before you're tacking your new Aura 650 across a local pond or lake!
Durable Hull: The Aura 650's hull is made from durable blow-molded ABS for added strength and has an attractive pre-applied trim that lets it stand out on the water like a full-size sailboat.
Quality Sails: The Aura's rip-stop nylon sails come with attractive pre-applied graphics and in addition to providing durability and great performance, also arrive partially pre-rigged to help make it easy to get on the water.
Water-Sealed Hatch: The Aura 650 has a sealed, water-resistant hatch that covers all the internal components including a "drum-style" servo that offers more power and smoother, more scale-like operation than traditional servos.
Ready-to-Run: The Aura 650 comes with everything you need in the box – including a 2.4GHz radio system, rip-stop nylon sails, 8 AA batteries, and even an attractive display stand, so that you can proudly show off your Aura when you not out sailing her.

Helion Aura 650 RTR Electric Sailboat
Terrible Support. Received 2 for Christmas. One went together fine. The other has a rudder manufactured incorrectly and is unusable. It is literally backwards. Have attempted to contact the manufacturer. It has been over a week and we have received no response. Assume this means we will have to dismantle the entire boat and bring it back. Right now think it's a piece of junk.
