Just saying hi from Portugal. I can’t even say I’ve done any RC before (except for crashing a plane on its first flight, but let’s pretend that didn’t happen) but I’ve recently become interested in RC sailboats. Looking around the net, the footy seemed like a fun class to start in, with lots of character and different hull shapes/rigging. I am intrigued and I want to try this out.
Together with a friend, we’re plannin on making our own boats, learning as we go. We’ll make sure to share our adventures. And yes, I realise beginners trying to build from scratch is probably a bad idea, but it sounds like fun and I’ve no doubt we’ll be terribly proud of our boats even if they sail all listing to one side or some such Hopefully this forum and several other sites will make us look good on that maiden voyage.
I shall now proceed to gorge myself on forum posts
