Thread: comparison of self steering systems
19/04/2021 17:03:52

Thank you all for the links. I've read everything I could on this forum, which was what lead me to post the question here, but the second link is new to me and I look forward to reading it. Specifically what I am struggling to understand is a person would choose one option over the other, and why small yachts use servo-pendulum and the like instead of the scaled up vane gear.

Greetings from across the pond! I'm interested in applying model self steering systems (like Braine gear) to a dinghy sized boat. I can't seem to find a meaningful comparison of the pros and cons of Braine gear versus Fisher linkage vane gear, or how those two compare to full scale systems like Hyrdrovane or servo-pendulum gear. Thanks in advance.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
