Build my own?
Posted 31 October 2019 - 09:53 AM
I’ve decided that I want to finally complete the project and do them justice, not the least because it’d be cool to sit in a bay with my boy and race each other around the anchored boats.
I can cast some appropriate keels and rudders, and build a scale rig without too many problems.
However, With regard to radios, receivers, and servos, where do I start?
I presume there are a myriad different ways to skin this cat, but something simple and cost effective would be good.

Get a 2.4 ghz transmitter (mode 2) and receiver, (there are some very cost effective units on the market) 2 channel is all you need, winch servo and rudder servo.
The rubber servo is a fairly standard servo (90 deg movement) but the winch servo can get a bit tricky as it depends on the sail area, IOM's use a RMG winch out of Australia but the DF 65's and 95 use a servo winch
DF65 rudder servo
DF95 Rudder servo
IOM Rudder Servo
Transmitters (normally come with a receiver) The sky is limit for these!!!!
PM me if you want any more information or help.
