  1. In reading Percival Marshall's book which seems to be published in the 1930's, but after the Third Rule of 1934, [the book is free on Amazon], I came across Figure 33 which is entitled . It made me wonder who established this scale and when. Basil
  2. Before discovering the existence of this forum, I posted the following message on the General Discussion forum. I'm a beginner who is at the carving stage of his classic 6rM. Looking forward to the electronics, I'm wondering what the best solution is for connecting the rudder servo to the slanted rudder shaft. My current idea is to: 1. Connect a line to an inexpensive servo with an arm. The servo will be far forward. 2. Position a vertical pulley aft such that the line emerges from it perpendicular to the angle of the rudder shaft, 3. Place an arm on the rudder shaft, 4. Run the line to the arm and then, with it continuing in the same direction, down to a vertical pulley which will permit the line to return forward, 5. Connect the line to an elastic which will run forward to maintain tension on the system. One of the arms will have an adjustable radius to control the amount of rudder swing. All comments or alternative methods will be most welcome. Basil
