trick rudders
« on: April 10, 2011, 10:01:05 PM »

I know there is a type of rudder which is vertically hinged and so linked that the after half steers more than the fore half. I'm sure it's  very simple but I can't work it out. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Name or diagram?

Fitted some to a Neddy and it made her so much better to control

On the main Mayhem site click on the Dickie tug pic and you will find a diagram to add a becker flap to the steerable Kort
