Thanks for your comment. Seemed to sail ok ...
RC Sailboat Dual Rudder RS 650 750 1st sail (1 min 14 sec)


The rudders surface area was equal to that of plan rudder. The keel was the same as per the Racing Sparrow plans.

It's difficult to appreciate from that vid... Still, the last 5 seconds look like a stall to me: boat turns to starboard to go upwind, and then it stops. I cannot tell if its going sideways or not... I'm just trying to be helpful, here...

Keel looks to be too narrow, maybe needs a tad more weight to help pull it thru the wind, too. Remember that scaling 1:1 does not work at this small a size
