Well, would someone pass a Message to "old Navy". I'm getting ready to buy a MM if there is any activity still going on in MEMphis. Never heard from his email.

Ok so I too am in Memphis and would like to participate Please let me know where and when.

Sorry, I don't know him. I checked the AMYA listings to see what was there found the following information. Didn't see any MM listed in TN but you might give these folks a call to see if they can help.

I've decided on a shyshark 2P mast in order to go shroud-less. I know I will need to drill out the vang fitting and jib hanger (the piece for the jib halyard). What is the popular option for the mast head crane? I suppose I could either drill it out too or step down the mast diameter using the kit mast.

Secondly, does anybody have a side profile drawing of the MM that would be suitable to use as a template for paint jobs?

I just stepped down from the SkyShark 2P using a short piece from the stock mast. It's an easy way to use existing fittings and fine tune the mast length before gluing.

The US class website has a link to a PDF of the full size plan sheet that comes with the model.

Go to the main page then pull down the "class info" tab and look at "MM MkII plan sheet". It has a full size profile of the hull.

http://usa.magicmicro.org/news.php

I used a stub of the factory mast in the top of my Skyshark to hold the factory crane.... There are some great ideas in the AMYA magazine #162, it's all about building Micro Magics. You can buy a copy of the magazine for $7 here;

New rMM variant, the rMM RFH. It is a ARTR rMM equipped with a graupner 2.4GHz HOTT RX (NO Tx in the box!)

Hi Nielsd;
New guy here. Question about your acronyms "rMM RFH"?
I think I get the ARTR part. "almost ready to race",Right? I know MM is for Magic Micro but what does the "r" stand for?
Sorry to be so redundant.

Although the R does refer to the word racing it has more to do with distinguishing between the MK 1 & Mk 2 variants of the boat.

MK 2 (rMM) is a boat designed for improved performance on the water.

Just because it is implied as a Racing Yacht doesn't mean that it can't be used for social sailing & enjoying a friendly sail at teh lakeside.

Cheers

The PDF file is too large to download. Not sure where RFH comes from but I guess it is to do with the Receiver.

Here is a link to all the MM options available from Graupner. Check the 2.4g variant

http://www.graupner.de/en/service/se...ms=micro+magic

Some re-sellers are addiding different Electronics depending on where you are.

Hope this helps

Cheers

RFH probably means: "Ready for H.O.T.T." , my best guess.

H.O.T.T. means "Hopping Telemetry Transmission", FYI.

Graupner's brand for their radio modulation.

Thank You Waboats and northernmike.

Oh by the way, I don't know where you're from Waboats? But down here we call our Battleships "WAWBOATS"
