Re: MX14 after Widget

Thx for your reply Dave! The main reason why I want to switch to a newer design is that they've got a lot more volume in the bow. The waters where we normally sail can be quite choppy; our present boat likes that a lot upwind, but downwind and in a broad reach, she is a right pain to handle. Cheers,...

MX14 after Widget

Life after sailing a Widget... I'm now thinking of upgrading(?) after my present Widget..... Thinking of ordering a MX14; I really like the build quality and am looking for an upgrade in performance. I haven't seen any top results so far.....would this be a nono when it comes to the boats potential?...

Oh the last cut I made it didnt fray at all! Strange!

Soak an inch or so in superglue and cut the wire half way in that area.... solves yr problem 8)

Grtzzz, Rob

Re: RMG winch set up with Spektrum DX6i

I just bought a Widget which we are going to collect next Sunday.
And yes...... almost the same question; boat is fitted with a RMG 280 ES winch and no RC.
I'm planning to buy a Spektrum 5E with AR610 receiver; is that going to work??

Thx, Rob
