Modifying Tx for disabled sailing

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm just starting out on this quest. We have a club member who is quite disabled physically. He currently sails a Hansa at international level and wants to try his hand at RC sailing. Has anyone modified a Tx for very limited range of movement. We're not talking about putting all controls onto one stick here. He sails his hansa by a sequence of pushes on buttons with the back of his hand (i think).

I'm going to approach the people who make the control system for the hansa as well.

Warm regards Paul


Started out in 150ft schooner. Started out RC sailing with 30 year old IOM, then went to an ASBO, then DF65 X2, and now a new Sedici IOM. The Cotswold Model Yacht Club is a wonderful place to sail with friendly people and lively sailing.
