    Looking for someone that has built one of these. It appears to me that the fibreglass hull needs to be cut down about 1 cm yet I can find no directions in the instructions telling me to do this. Can anyone help? I have emailed Caldercraft/ Jotika twice but have received no response.

    Purchased on eBay. It is timber, quite heavy and odd looking. Cabin is solid timber and I think hull is solid timber.

    It took me a while to get use to steering but eventually it becomes second nature. I started by turning to face the way the boat was going an look back over my shoulder. I sail DF 65 And Aussie J. I made a video from the boats perspective and realised I don't steer very straight. I oversteer and am constantly correcting.

    Finally got the boat going and learnt a big lesson. I was using a prop shaft the telescopes and it did. With the motor running hard I think I hit some weed which caused the prop to have extra pressure on it. The shaft then collapsed in from the added pressure and I lost all propeller thrust. Could hear the motor revving and no motion. Had to be rescued by a model sailing boat!

    About to start building the Caldercraft Northlight a 32 inch (60 cm) model. I have done some research and often they are powered by a 385 motor. These are a little hard to source can you help me with other possible motors.

    Also suggestions for propeller needed.

    The more I read the more confused I get. What do most people use as far as self centering. Throttle or rudder or both? Do I really want mode 2?

    Newbie question. I am going to buy a FlySky FS-i6 and want a spring loaded throttle on left and spring loaded rudder on right. Do I get this if I buy mode 2. ie will it be spring loaded. Chose this brand as I understand it and use it on my sailboat. My sailboat transmitter is not spring loaded on left as it pulls the sheets on and is then left alone.

    Thankyou all so much. Yes a sea hornet with a funny cabin.
    Wonder how it ended up with this cabin?
    Wonder how it ended up in a little country town called Ross in Tasmania Australia?
