Modifying Tx for disabled sailing

Paul Barton

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm just starting out on this quest. We have a club member who is quite disabled physically. He currently sails a Hansa at international level and wants to try his hand at RC sailing. Has anyone modified a Tx for very limited range of movement. We're not talking about putting all controls onto one stick here. He sails his hansa by a sequence of pushes on buttons with the back of his hand (i think).

I'm going to approach the people who make the control system for the hansa as well.

Warm regards Paul

Started out in 150ft schooner raced various 1 ton boats, Trapepr 300 and Dehler 35. Started out RC sailing 4 years ago with 30 year old IOM, then went to an ASBO, then Sedici, DF95. Whitefriars SC is now our host and we sail at least 3 days a week. The DF95 fleet is 10 boats  sailing weekly on a Monday. IOM fleet regularly see 10 boats sailing every Tuesday. Just begun to introduce D6 3D printed IOM to the UK
