    The Hansa dinghy was introduced in 1947 by Henry Rasmussen, founder of the renowned boatyard Abeking & Rasmussen (A&R). During the post war years there there was an Allied ban on larger new boats. The Hansa is really a keel boat with a fixed keel and has a draught of 50 cm. The ballast keel is 150 kg and the beam is 1.65 meters, which gives good stability, but still has the character of a dinghy. The boat is 5.85 m long, and was designed to be a small, safe cruising boat for inland and coastal waters.

    This model is made from an Aeronaut kit. It has three servos, rudder, mainsail and jib. This means the model needs to be sailed "properly", changing the jib as you tack and trimming each sail to ensure the boat sails well. Its quite enjoyable to sail.

    This photo shows how the servos are fitted. The long armed servo controls the jib and with 2:1 ratio, there is just enough movement, so the jib can move from one side to another.

    The servo controlling the mainsail is top left and uses a 3:1 ratio on the sheet and this creates enough travel to allow the mainsail to move out while sailing downwind.

    The third servo controls the rudder. I use a FlySky FS-i6 transmitter.

    Hi Andy, I saw your video in Doug's message.
    I really like how it sails.
    It seems to me that it navigates the various gaits and is also able to tack and jibe very well (even with little wind).

    Thanks Doug, you solved the problem brilliantly and showed me the video. I assumed that he had copied the entire URL (including https:...).
    You are much more attentive, nothing escapes you.

    Hi Andy.
    You forgot to include the security prefix https:// in your link.
    I believe the site rejects any link without this as a safety feature for us.
    BTW any link embedded in your text will chop off and ignore any text entered after itโ˜น๏ธ
    ALWAYS put any URL links at the end of your text.
    This should work-
    Very nice vid BTW. Very relaxing, she seems to handle very well, although I couldn't do it myself.
    Not a 'stick and string' man really๐Ÿ˜‰
    Cheers, Doug๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Hi Alessandro - I tried the paste/return, but no change. There must be away of making the text/web address into a direct link. It does seem to work if you cut and paste, not ideal I appreciate.

    Hi Andy, I select the entire URL of the Youtube video and then paste it into the text of the message (at the end of the text).
    I think you did the same. Maybe after pasting you should give the "return" command.
    By doing this in the forum the text link becomes a link icon. Try paste and "return".
    Maybe I'm wrong but it doesn't cost anything anyway.

    Hi Alessandro
    Thanks
    Sorry the link doesnโ€™t work, could someone please explain how to create a direct link from a post as I couldnโ€™t work this out? I notice some contributors manage to embed a video into their post.

    Hi Andy, it's a really nice model.
    I really like seeing them sailing but I couldn't open the video on YouTube.
    Is the link correct?
