I had the Carbon MM out today, only light winds so it was perfect for a bit of practice and for trying out various sail settings. As the winds weren't anything much it wasn't really a test of how waterproof the hatch either, was even though I tried to get the deck awash. .... Happily it was dry as a bone after sailing but I do need a windier day to give it a real test.  There weren't any other boats there either to compare performance but she handled very nicely so I'm ready for something a bit more lumpy next time.  :D

Just a quick one: I know the MM isn't a scale model of any particular vessel, but if it was, roughly what scale would you put it at?

Think it is  based on a single handed round the world yacht, not sure of the make or name of the real one, but its roughly based on it

The real ones gota be around the 10 meter mark if not alittle bigger

It's looks and hull shape owe a lot to the 1/4 tonners like these, which should give you an idea of size and therefore scale.  :-) ... http://www.sailinganarchy.com/article.php?get=1715

Hi


I'm just building a carbon micro magic and need help to show me how to set up the lines for a
one servo set up, if someone could do a drawing that would be great, I can follow it easier, the plan only shows set up  [size=78%]with two servos, this is my first go at sailing.[/size]

Actually it's very easy indeed, instead of tying off the jib sheeting line to the trim servo, leave that servo out and just attach the jib sheet to the piece of ply that the small servo goes on. Simples!  :-)

Battery finally tuned up today... and is 92 grams!! somehow from the website to my door its grown buy 10 grams hmm  %%

Changed the jib sheet line hole, hopefully it will work and not snap off but only time will tell. Have moved the keel to its back position and its helped alot with the trim of the boat, it should come from graupner like this in my opinion!





All the best
