Kyosho Fairwind III
I have just purchased the Kyosho Fairwind III and was wondering if anyone has had any experience with them? I picked this boat because I liked the way it looks, more like a scale model than a racing boat. The next question is it possible to rebuild boats like these to have two sail winches and remove the jib boom, I used to own a full size racing sail boat and the boom under the jib kind of bugs me. So I was thinking of changing the rig to a three channel radio with one servo for the jib, one servo for the main and the third for the rudder or should I leave it the way it is and just enjoy it?

There's been quite a bit of chat about the boat on http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Fairwind900/
The jib boom helps radio boats in general to self tack much better and unless you're very close to the boat to see the sails, independant control of the jib can hinder more than it helps.
