      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. I have a NKE Gyropilot which has worked nicely out of box...but trying to wring a little more performance out of it. For anyone with this pilot can you share.....my boat is a J/88 light not ultralight planing hull (uses an asym kite) Dead angle....what do you set it to/when why Wind dampening...when do you use auto when do you use a setting? Counter rudder....when do you use auto when a setting? Rudder coef. (this causes rudder to move less at higher boat speeds.....seems to be a little counter to gain....) how when do you balance this vs gain..... I have done a lot of searches and can't find details on this....apologies if I am posting something already covered. I am trying to setup 9 pre set functions for Upwind, Reaching, Downwind in Light/Medium/Heavy conditions....
