D4 IOM  radio controlled yachts have exceptional tracking ability in winds over 10 knots where it just sails itself on the wind. Using the rudder  can slow the boat . The D4 tacks very well and does not loose speed after the tack as some of the other IOM boats do . In the drifting conditions the boat is fast. Downwind it is very good in all conditions and has exceptional ability to catch and surf waves .

D4 IOM  radio controlled yachts love the chop. Up wind or downwind the wave piercing bow slices through the wave without slowing the boat. This also helps when the boat starts to dive downwind as there is less pressure  on the sails pushing the bow down compared to some boats that trip over the bow that slows it. The boat still wipes out if there is too much wind for the particular rig it has on however no sooner than any of the other proven designs

When the wind picks up to around 25 knots with the B rig on the boat has a exceptional turn of speed almost planing on the wind . The fuller forward sections of the boat helps to lift the bow and the fin with more area up high has less lateral force down low so the boat does not get knocked down in the puffs
