Brad, as you mentioned in one of your previous postings, the glass fibre tube you are using is an arrow shaft. As a former archer, the idea that springs to my mind is to substitute the glass shaft with an aluminum shaft which is not very costly, very stiff and availabe in a a wide variety of dimensi...

interessting looking design. Looks as if Darren is going against the trend towards narrow boat. Keep us posted on the performance on the water.

Hi Ed, OC44 is correct. The green boat with the red trim is the boat Michael sailed in Spain. The brownish boat with the silver sails ( jib out of place :wink: ) is Michaels evolution with slight changes to the lines. Actually the boats with sail # 13 & 33 are also Michaels designs. So as you can se...

Alan: Perhaps you are correct. Of the craft I have seen, none exceed the 60 mm value and some are quite shy of this hull depth, but I suspect that you have more knowledge of this than I (since you are in a hot bed of hull design and developement). Speaking for the German NCA I can say that we have ...

I have used it via my Futaba radio system. I set the sheets to a middle position and the rudder to medium turn so it just goes round in circles.

As far as I know (please correct me if this has changed) the boat as it is in the kit is not class legal as the keel is under weight. You can get a better CF fin and lead ballast from www.rcsegeln.de The performance of the boat is not up to date. It can be OK in light air but as soon as the breeze g...

Hmmm, interesting point. Two comments / thoughts on this: 1.) What about people that not only have multiple rigs and keels but multiple boat designs? For example, M. Scharmer sailed a minimum of three different boats during our ranking season and I know of others that have more than one boat. :oops:...

no I know. For example the Kopropo pistol and stick modules are different. But for Futaba I think it'll work.

Lester, I got this from tha FAQ page of Spektrum RC: Will this device work for the Futaba 3PJ? The Futaba Module fits the 3PK and the 3PJ systems. I think, but am not sure that the HF modul from the 3PJ pistol grip and the 3VC stick radio are the same. This would mean that the Spektrum modul should ...

Anders Wallin has the plans available on his website, but I can't ever recall seeing one on the water.
