ok, i built an old laughing whale kit and rigged the servos by the plans, minimal as they were, but after seeing some of the pics here it would seem i lack alot of sail control. any RCers have any advice on this?

i guess my question is this, does anyone have a diagram showing how to rig for jib and mainsail to the sail winch servo and what type of arm/wheel should i have on that servo?

Uncleb and qwerty2008, 

 

I may have found a book that may help all of us RC Sailors get the information they have been seeking. 

 

"An Introduction to Radio Controlled SCALE SAILING MODELS"  BY Phillip Vaughan Williams

 

I did a brief review on it in this section

 

There are diagrams of servo-sail control in this book.
