I am relatively new to rc sailing, but having done some rc gliders, cars and powerboats as well as having “big boat” sailing experience, this seems like a natural step. I am building a footy “Presto” having been drawn to its traditional appearance and apparent good sailing qualities. It’s getting close to done, but family and work occasionally slow progress. It’s been a lot of fun watching it take shape!
I am in West Hartford, and hope to make it out to some of the local spots to meet some of you in the future. I hope to also solicit a few bits of advise in the Footy forum on my build as I wrap up my own boat.
