Installing r/c equipment

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have modelled for years with boats including non class r/c yachts, but a close friend has asked me to install r/c into his 10 rather, I need to know the best form of control over the sails and the recommended type of winch to use, could anyone give me some very basic help, many thanks, Peter

I would reccomend an RMG winch possibly with a self tensioning drum and the lines would be on a continuous loop there are pictures of this with the RMG winch instructions, there are other winches available like the PJ Sails one which would also do the job

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.

Kind regards
