What I had in mind was rudder servo, the fore stay sail bungie type slack line, inner & outer jib sail with one sevo, for the fore sail one servo ,one for the main sail and one for the mizzen sail, I am useing a DX7 so I've got plenty of channles to work with. I belive that I need to control all main sails and the two fore jibs for ease of turnning and tacking, I don't think snapping the rudder hard to one side to get the boat to turn is the way to go, and with out jib control it still may not turn, when I sail my 36/600 I set my sails so the boat will run straight, I don't like to keep rudder push to get the boat to run in a stright line , not only is it a work out, it just does'nt look like you now what you are doing with you boat snakeing accrost the lake.

Am I wrong? Is this not how the ship should be run
