my first sail boat
I am striving to get finished with my first sail boat. However I need some help about the gears. I mean it seems pretty straightforward how to control the rudder but I am not clear at all how to use the other servo, the one supposed to control the sails.
Could you please help me. I need the easiest way to do that.

I'm sure you'll have a blast with your sailboat when it is finished. The second servo will let the sails in and out, using a long arm with the sheets (sail control ropes) attached near the ends.
Where these are installed depends a little on which boat you are building. There is excellent information at www.amya.org and www.victoriarc.org on different approaches to the running rigging.
Best of luck!
