ENTZ Sail Servo

I'm still having problems finding a sail servo with the right dimensions. Can someone tell me the servo they have used for this boat?

Thanks
Charles

Please keep us in mind if you ever think of selling those "aftermarket" sails.


Anyone want to comment about how this boat sails????


I've got one on the way to me now, I know it looks good, but have not been able to find much about its performance.

Thanks In Advance

sure!! sails will be for sale, just getting prices on signage film . as we used a matt film so as to be authentic to real boats, beside it being expensive, it took 3 hours to stick all the bits together!! sails should be able to be done for around $225 Aus, feel free to email me for more details as im not selling here, only trying to help people get servos to fit etc!!! andrew@gospectre.com

I to have been looking,but nothing here, like everything in NZ we are last to get it!! Try giving Ace Hobbies up north an email, to see "when" or if they're getting it.

hi bob, both boats appear to be good, we have etnzs in our range because difficulty of getting the seawinds in the past, mind you etnz boats are near impossible to get at the moment.

seawind - needs bigger rudder, stiffermast and to be sealed to stop water getting in, it is a great looking boat that is ove rpowered quickly. is a typical kyosho boat, all stainless and anodised alloy bits. fantastic kit. grease rudder and keel bolts so the alloy and stainless does not corode. great boat, now in carbon hull version too.
uses sail arm servo so nice crisp quick sheeting.


\etnz. great solid rig. narrow spreaders so needs a lot of rig tension, may need new chainplates for the shroud. stock sails are as in all thunder tiger boats and i reccommend replacing straight away, less frustrating that way. detailed deck gear is good, but will be ripped off bit by bit if you sail alot, as will any . great static display yacht. like many of the tamiya yamaha w60 boats the etnz boats have paint defects in the bow where the boat is clamped in transit and paint is still soft, minor but anoys me. uses sail winch , tension to the drum is via a cover, im still not sold on the idea, but will sail it some more.

option 3 tamiya yamaha, what can i say, its tamiya, you will not get a better injection molding or set of instructions. i love these kits, and can get a crew for static display!!
sail really well, and also benefit from new sails. sail arm servo. flexy keel is a feature on all 3 due to weight and depth, its ok though wont break!!

hows that??

Sorry to interrupt, Andrew, you said about the ETNZ " tension to the drum is via a cover". Could you explain a bit more ?
