soling update build partial


I have enclosed a couple of photos showing current thoughts on the victor soling 1m build. the procedure can be found on the western reserve
model yacht club website. it follows the advanced build with few changes.
the cutting of the keel box allows the sail servo to be placed 19.05 mm
lower in the boat and 32.578 mm further forward in the boat.
deck goes on tonight and delivery to owner next week if time allows.

I'm fooling with locating electronics inside one of Claudio Diolaiti's "NARROW" RG65 designs - not much room inside of it...... but wondering your reason behind the oversize base plate for sevos, receiver, etc. Seems like it takes up a lot of unused room. Not much weight, but still has "some" weight.

radio board width


The radio board needed the width for the receiver and it was made symmetrical for balance. if the receiver was moved to the underside of the deck the radio board could have been smaller.

KTM, the WR is a good build guide. however I still would put a cross beam on the top of the rudder tube to take some of the left/right stresses

the base of the hull where the rudder exits is a pretty weak point...

also, on either side of the keel trunk , is that wetted out fiberglass or is it just epoxy smeared in the hull?

I would also recommend a mast support. Even though the build guide makes the bulkhead out of plywood, a support would be very easy insurance. and it doesn't even need to be glued it. just a pressure fit would suffice...

On either side of the keel trunk is a light lamination of 3/4 oz. glass
and around the trunk is a bead of thickened epoxy with milled fibers .
the bulkhead is a lamination of plywood and basswood to a thickness
of 3/8 of an inch. the rudder is supported with plywood arches adhered
to the hull with thickened epoxy with milled fibers.

I'll quote marc, and strongly recommend/suggest a mast support/compression strut. You don't need much, but is better to have one.

I'm also, honestly, not completely sold/convinced about the cutting of the keel box, I'm not so sure if the lover servo position, that can be easily achieved without major surgeries my servos are just placed on the keel box side with the keel box serving to hold the keel and as servo tray, can offset the keel box, and hull, weakening. But It may work.
