Brushless winch

Alberto Spada (ITA) just wrote to tell me about his new website: http://www.aa-parts.com/ The brushless technology certainly looks interesting!

Longer distance between the starting line and the windward mark. This distance is critical and has to be as long as possible and that will ensure a smooth race. Because of the direction of the wind it wasn’t easy to do that in BAR but the starting line was not always aligned with the leeward corn...

Hi all,

I've just noticed that HiTec has a new servo out, the HS-7955TG.

With the new HFP-20 programmer it should have an overload protection feature.

Has anyone used this? With the overload protection I imagine no fuse is necessary.

this works well too:
- print out the number on normal copy paper with a laser printer
- attach to hull with epoxy. the epoxy will saturate the paper and you'll get a nice number badge which is firmly attached to the hull.
