I will be using a programmable digital servo for the sail winch. The Hitec 5995 has been discontinued, so I will be using the newer water and dust resistant 7995; it is a 2nd generation servo with titanium gear. For the rudder I will not be using anything fancy, just a good old Hitec 300 servo. When it comes to the receiver I will use one of my Spectrum two channel MR200 which should also be water resistant. If you have it the AR400 works just fine as well or its "Orange" equivalent. To power all of this I will be using a 5-cell NiMH HydriMax pack with 6.0 volts and 2000mAh. It might just all work while remaining legal within the class.

Most hardware stores sell " Duco Cement " it is a clear quick drying clear glue that comes in a tube. Duco Cement is more than adequate and safer to use forthe preventing knots from becoming untied.

The CA glue bonds the knot to the fitting.

How fast does the "Duco Cement" takes to dry?

Maybe 2-3 minutes max. On your fingers, about half that time !

Hi Slowpolk here. I believe my interest in the CR 914 has increased. As you my wife said that I'll be able to get a CR 914 if I like the remote control sailing. I'm interested in the shape of a hull from the manufacturer, why so many defects that you have to use Bondo. Is this a common thing throughout the class?

The mold “defect” is virtually imperceptible in the most recent hulls. It’s part of the blow molding process. I was able to simply wet sand and buff out the plastic to a mirror finish.
