  1. Hi Mike. I have had3 IOM’s. On all the rudder tube was stuck in after the hull had moulded and not part of the basic lay up. It is not part of the hull basic structure so don’t think it is affected by this area of the rules. I would still use delrin for the reasons I stated I my first post. On my current boat a V9 it has a gland at the top with an o ring to stop water working up and into the hull. I just put a thin wipe of silicone grease on the rudder shaft to lube it and aid water resection.
  2. I would use Delrin. It can de machined and will take a course thread. Try EBAY. That is we’re I get mine.
  3. Hi, Try Mike Ridley at model radio workshop. He is very experienced and knows just about every rc system ever made.
  4. I have read the instructions for the smartwinch and from my understanding of it the travel limiting is done at the sheeted in end of the travel. This in my option is not good as it will give a very distorted curve to the travel. For better to do it all on the tx epa,s. Then program and curve you may want. As far as protecting the the sheet lines etc. If you are worries put a weak lint in somewhere. Use a fail safe on your setup or fit a 2anp fist in the battery circuit. Use the smallest pulley you can and limit the travel as little as possible with programming as this will cut down on the resolution and holding power or the winch. Ask someone who flies large model planes or better still gliders. Mechanical set up is the most important thing to get right first.
