Fyfe Yachts
« on: July 28, 2008, 03:08:07 PM »

Can anyone tell me where I can get hold of a model/plans for any of Fyfe's racing yachts, large enough to install RC?

Anyboat can be  fitted with RC so long as it fits, with modern mini servos and RX's nearly anything can be fitted with RC equipment. Have a look at model car and plane equipment, allthough you can not use 35mgZ in surface craft, but micro 40 mhZ gear is available for model cars.
