DAVE BRUMSTEAD reviews this A.R.T.F. model from Hobby Engine

Hi I am new to any kind of model boating. I bought the Live at the extreme model. I carried out all instructions to the letter.  I then took a trip down to my local lake and watched  the boat nod it`s head. I eased the sails out to allow the very light breeze to spill, this made no difference and she just lay on her side.
I have been to my local model boating club and even the expierenced sailers cannot get this thing to sail. Please can someone let me know the secret with this model.

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
