    Radio controlled sailing

    Haha, yeah she's just an old M from New Zealand. Wider beam, and a shorter keel and rig than the modern ones.

    It's crazy how narrow the M's have gotten since the late 80's era M I have. They look like one hull of a catamaran now or like a Moth hull.

    Radio controlled sailing

    I'm late to find this thread but thought I would share a new way to sail my old Marblehead. I fly fpv drones and had an extra DJI Air Unit and camera that I put on a 3d printed mount that puts the camera a decent height above deck and out the stern a ways. Now I have first person view rc sailing...

    Christmas Regatta

    The no wind races honestly make it more relatable. Roasting on deck hoping for a puff from anywhere just to move a little. The banter was funny on the downwind leg. I hope obviously there aren't many like that but the wind is the wind and will do what it wants to. That's just sailing. I can feel...

    What if the Brits are editing the code themselves and they are the ones on the non standard version?

    Yeah that almost always made me think the U.S. would get shafted. Vpn it is then. Would have been nice if they spelled out specifically which countries were excluded so it was clear.

    I think you still spelled too many words correctly but that did make me chuckle lol!

    You sound just like a freaking Trump supporter. If your goal is to be annoying, you have succeeded.

    Is Patriot back in the shed under the surgeon's knife for mods? Been quiet here and I haven't seen any new footage for awhile.

    Te Rehutai Looking good though! Thanks for the pictures as always.

    Agreed. He has laid waste to everything in his path. He's the most disgusting, repulsive and embarrassing figure to ever be president. What his victory in 2016 said about the ignorance and stupidity of our population is also a global embarrassment. Half of our population is completely detached...

    Man you could use that stern as a straight edge.

    I have an old Marblehead Rc boat that I got in New Zealand when I was 13. Uses an old futaba with two sticks. I keep wanting to put a camera on it and sail it fpv. I think I'd have to have a head tracker so I could look at sail trim and look around a bit. I agree though it definitely wouldn't...

    The video you quoted is shorter than any of the time stamps you listed so that's gonna be hard to do. The whole video was 1:36 long.

    We are used to FC's with rc rate and super rates though. If you just used rc rate it gets pretty linear (Obviously I don't think they use betaflight but whatever their flight control software I'm sure it's equally if not more configurable). I agree though it would suck if your thumb slipped off...

    They make smaller ones but there is something to be said for having a nice grip. That just happens to be mine. Might want to make sure the controller is larger than any deck opening that leads into the bilge. It would suck to crash and lose the race because the controller fell below deck lol.

    You could do it all with this.

    Seems to me out of all the things the Cup traditionalists would find to be distasteful about these boats, having a joystick for steering would piss them off the most lol. Edit: It could actually be a regular rc transmitter like an frsky Taranis or something similar. They could have pitch and...

    I've thought Patriots stern is specifically designed to create low pressure at the stern like this.

    But more aerodynamic lift means you could reduce flap angle on the foils potentially and reduce drag
