If you push your trim in both ways to the max, you will get 120°... that is what I did and still the max was 90°... I asked the programmer and he confirmed me it has been programmed at 120° I might go and look for someone with a programmer to see if we can work it out. Still I have the question:...

I have encountered a problem: the servo only makes 90° in combination with my Futaba FM set :oops: It has been programmed to 120°. What will solve this?

I am new into the IOM: my boat is still under construction. I am not new in RC sailing and not new in the marketing aspect of RC sailing. In 2001 I started promoting the micromagic in Holland.

Hello from Holland

Hi there IOM-world. In Holland things have been set into motion: http://iom-ned.nl Boats are under construction and we hope to start racing this year. Before you can sail there is a lot more to do than putting together a Micro Magic I found out, but we will come on the water. Watch out for the Dutch!
