Motor is a A2212/10 1400KV. Prop is 8x6. Batt is a 1600mAh 3S nano-tech. Right now I have a 20A ESC, but I have the 40A reversible seaplane ESC from HobbyKing on order. Not that I think I need a 40A ESC, but I wanted the reverse.

The guy who sold me the motor and ESC says 8x6 is a bit much, but I have a couple of hundred flights on my FT Spitfire with the same motor/ESC/prop with no problem.

Hi

Lots of interesting stuff on the Microflight site for the BAT, including a proper sewn sail, but I don't see a goose neck or kicking strap fitting which would be at least as important for keeping the boom from rising and maintaining sail shape. This is particularly important when gong to windward which a land yacht does most of the time. Anyone know of a goose neck that will fit?

The little motor will get you out of a pinch if you're caught in stays or in a wind shadow when sailing, but won't feed my need for speed... My motor was designed to be a alternative to the sail when there isn't enough wind for sailing or I just want to horse around in the parking lot where I live.

Would one from a dragon force yacht be usable ?

Hi

Well, that was a lot more motor than she needs! This thing would probably be fast enough on a blue wonder on 2S.

I stripped the steering servo. What's a good cheap drop in replacement with metal gears?

Sailing these can provide a "taste" of multihull sailing. Extensive reaching close hauled and sailing down wind with sails sheeted in. Next closest might be DN or similar ice boats (provided you have temperatures to support ice boating) . The sailing will give you the ability to become aware of sail handling and steering reactions. THEN, on to a multihull!

Good to hear you are enjoying it.
