  8. I must confess that initially I was very suspicious of the Self Tensioning Drum . But after several rubber tensioner failed due to my neglect I went down this road. If you use it correctly it is very reliable . I found the secret is not to over tension it, about 3/4 to 1 turn . Beyond that the fun begins . Also you must always secure the top screw ... it you don't they can split in two And clearly don't wind layer of string on it , I have about 2 turns on the drum But to each his own , I cannot stand springs and elastic carp chord Dave Just playing with this new site - it great on my pc but hell on my phone

  14. Thanks for all this information fellas, any help on this project is a great help, Peter.
  15. Hi Paul Might I suggest that if you end up with 'too many' on any 'club' day (and I leave it to your club to decide who too many is - but remember that as HMS allows for a start line containing (I think) 20 boats that you might not get away with many less for an Open Event !) that you do what we do and that is to ensure for each 'oversubscribed' club event that those (numerically, not personally!) who are deemed to be one of 'the too many' - be that one or more skippers - act for a particular race during the session as Race Officer and or Observer(s). This has the effect of ensuring that all competitors of the day understand and have a crack at the implications and pitfalls of actually doing those jobs at club race level, ensures that all competitors are aware that they are under the scrutiny of observers and remedy any breaches of which they might be 'guilty' other than just hoping that no-one notices, and learn that if an open event occurs at their club and they are asked to help it's not quite so terrifying as they imagine and ultimately the poor old event organiser does not go mad trying to find a team to support him or her. Yes - you might have to run an extra race or two to get the number of discards that you wish, and someone will have to work out on the day a simple rota so that each competitor during the morning or day has a turn off doing the officiating but it's manageable and everyone will still get their full crack at the number of races they wish. Hope that this is all understandable, and you may be indeed doing it already in some form or another, but it works for us! Cheers Chris Durant
  16. Having just detonated a self tensioning drum, I have to say I have moved over to a standard drum with a separate block/spring arrangement to add tension. to the winch line. The self tensioning drums are very clean and convenient, however are a known failure point in the system. I'm sure many people have had great success with them, just offering another view.
  17. Standard servo torque wise would be fine but if you can choose a half decent waterproof one it would be better. Hitec HS-646WP HV Waterproof which is high voltage too.

    v8 for sale

    You can just reply to or amend the actual for sale topic but I will go and remove it. Cheers
  19. Hi Mike, many thanks for that information, it will be a great help, if I could pick your brains on one other thing, would an off the shelf standard servo be man enough to control the rudder on a 10 rather? Once again though, thanks, Peter

  23. Good Afternoon Recently I have been shopping around to upgrade my I.T and design software programs. I have been using for many years a student version of Maxsurf. Unfortunately, after some research the latest Maxsurf programs are far to expensive for what I need. I would be grateful if anyone has a newer version of Maxsurf, in which the program allows the user to export an STL File and would be willing to sell their version. Please just PM if your able to help. Regards JT
