    πŸ“ Slightly confused newbie

    Hi John, regarding the rudder, the 'Normal' and 'Reversed' designations are purely arbitrary.

    If you put a servo arm in one position on the servo, then remove it and place it at 180 degrees to the original position, the servo is reversed with respect to the original position. Try it with a spare servo and servo arm.

    The Normal/Reverse options on the transmitter are only there to allow for variations in servo to servo arm location variations. The 'Normal' designation is somewhat misleading.

    As far as the ESC goes, that is sorted by programming the ESC.

    That's my 2.7p worth. (5 cents Australian)

    Cheers, Terry

    πŸ“ Old Futaba servo wiring...

    Hi Admiral RNinMunich sir,

    I was going down the route of building a 2.4GHz Detector/Meter until I came across this:

    https://www.banggood.com/Lantian-Mini-High-Sensitive-2_4G-Fr...

    It works a treat and for that price it is not worth running around getting parts for a diode/capacitor/meter circuit.

    Cheers from DownUnda

    Hi Doug,

    thanks for that lead.

    I have since found that the boat is still intact and in a museum in Norway. Dagfinn Bakke from the Norsk Modellseilforening og Norsk IOM Klubb put me onto it.

    Who says that the world cannot get along with one another?

    Thanks all.

    Cheers,

    Terry Smith

    I'm retired.
    I have nothing to do.
    I have all day to do it.
    Why don't I have any spare time?

    I don't know how you guys feel about posting links to other forums (fora?). However, the rcgroups.com has a HUGE blog on the DF95.

    https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?2437398-Dragon-Flite-95

    The big plus is that being an American site it is all in (almost) English.

    πŸ“ bad day at blackrock

    Have as much fun as you can. When I went in for radiation treatment I used to wear a Spiderman hoodie and complain afterwards when I couldn't shoot spider webs. When all of the hair disappeared and it came up to Australia Day, I stuck a temporary Australian flag tattoo on the big shiny bit above my forehead. All of the kids loved it when I went in for treatment. in remission now and still having fun. Don't give up.

    πŸ“ HELP ME DECIDE PLEASE

    The DF95 is too short at 950mm for IOM.

    I think that the Ragazza can squeeze into the IOM rules with a bit of tweaking. The supplied mast and sails fall between an A rig and a B rig in size. The mast is removable.

    If you decide to change the paintwork on a Ragazza you have two options.

    1. Paint over the existing surface and add a bit more weight.

    2. Strip the existing surface off and repaint on the bare fibreglass. Beware, this is not an easy job. The existing surface is VERY hard and takes a lot of sanding with very heavy sand paper to remove. Been there, done that.

    The Ragazza is a pretty boat and fun to sail but it will not stand up against the red hot competition IOMs.
