    They are still available - you just need to know where to look ๐Ÿ˜€

    Manufactured by Kingmax and available in two options 4 turn or 6 turn. I have used several of these in my sail boats.

    I'm afraid that this type of winch is no longer available, I hope they haven't stopped producing it.
    From a recent message from DuncanP on his build blog I got further feedback on this.
    I hope I'm wrong.

    Hi Doug.
    Thanks for the clarification.

    There is a misunderstanding. I didn't mean to look for that particular article.
    If I find exactly that even better but it is not mandatory.

    I'm looking for any winch that has metal gears and a plastic spool.
    They are objects for nautical modeling, so the dimensions are roughly always the same, they vary slightly.

    I saw that in this forum, although I don't remember exactly who, like me, uses these winches instead of the normal servo controls.

    The characteristics may be close but not necessarily exactly the following:

    Sail Winch Servo 13kg / 0.7sec (360deg) / 55g
    Specifications:
    Weight: 55g
    Dimensions: 40.5 x 20.2 x 38mm
    Speed: 0.9sec / 360deg (4.8V) - 0.7sec / 360deg (6.0V)
    Torque: 11kg.cm (4.8V) - 13kg.com (6.0V)
    Operating voltage: 4.8 - 6.0V
    Gear train: Metal

    However, to help me understand better I'll post the link to the one I looked at (but which isn't available) as Doug suggested.

    Sorry Alessandro,
    But that picture with no manufacturer name or type / model number is pretty useless for identification.๐Ÿค”
    Maybe you can -
    a. take a more informative photo, showing Name and type ID,
    b. find your old Hobby King bill for the ID,
    c. Give us a link to the Hobby King item or catalogue reference.
    Then we 'might' have more luck finding one for you.
    Cheers, Doug๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Good evening everyone.

    I've been wanting to buy this winch that I show in the attached image for some time.
    To control the sails I prefer these to normal servos, the cost did not exceed 16 euros.
    It's not urgent but I can't find it anymore.
    I bought three of them on Hobby King, but for more than two or three years it has been in the catalog but no longer available.
    I can't even find it on other e-commerce sites.

    Can anyone give me some useful links?
