Rick, as you know, I use spectra line, as it gives zero stretch, and huge strength per dia.

I use a single run, like stock, as it made it simpler to run the lines.

The servo saver arm on the red Nirvana is stock. as I had metioned to you, its not a bad idea, designed to stop servo gear stripping, it acts as a cushion.

I made it a solid arm because my metal gear servo can stand the shock loading, and I like very firm control, with no areas of slop in any of my r/c stuff. I stayed with the megatech arm cause I like the pulley set up on it.

Now, I am busy playing with my real boat, and my lovely g/f sends a pic from today to show me in my GQ boating attire..

OMG! What a beautiful smile. I don't think I've ever seen a "mug" shot taken on the fly bridge of yacht before.

If your haven't a good time, I'd hate to see you when your mad!

Seriously, thanks for the response. Regarding using the one length of line, I still think it curious. Oh, well since it doesn't make any difference, I'll do it my way, and see if there is any difference.

Have a nice time on the lake. Glad you finally got some good weather.

Yeah...ya look like ya swallowed a bug...

I never changed the line on any of my boats, so I can't add anything to this one guys.

I wish it were cooler here right now....record heat and the drought is on...and the 10 day forecast shows 100 or near with no let up and no rain...what is up with this weather...

It's always good to put a face to a name...so here's a couple more of me....

re-sheeting single line or two?


Ok, here is the word from the "Top Brass" on replacing the sheets using a single line or two.
This is the response from Steve Lang the "Nirvana Guru

"As for the sheets, there is no reason for the continuous line. In fact it would be better to replace with too separate lines so that one can be replaced easily. "
Steve

Thanks Steve. Always good to be right!

Ok, I will use two different lines to operate the two sails. Better?

Now I know why they call yous guys, wise guys!!

Oh, was able to get my new plane in the air this week. Here are a couple of pictures. It's hard to take a good pictures and fly the plane. Anyway, was able to get two flights in - with no issues. Very cool looking plane.

Terrific score! I am sure he'll continue to develop his already amazing flying skills.
I wish I had started flying sooner, but now that I have, I fly as often as I can. I have a great appreciation for those that fly at these levels.

As I mentioned before, sailing is still my favorite part of the RC hobby. I get a lot more time on the water than in the air.

Appreciate your sharing this with us. Have to get back to re-sheeting my Nirvana. Been playin around with the airplanes too much.

I just picked up small bag of jib counter balance weights at the fishin place. Going to give that a try - l'd like to see if it makes a noticeable difference.

Regarding the hardy party days of old, what once was great fun would put me in a comma today. Still enjoy a nip here and there.

At the local spring float fly-in after one of the pilots became a spectator he went and got his RC Laser. Was enjoyable watching, unfortunately I was taking photo's and had left the Nirvana at home. I know a different class/style of boat but they sure have a lot of mast and keel flex. And cost almost two and a half times as much
