The ScaleSailing range of easy to build kits

'Kittiwake K2'

 

A sloop rig Footy designed by Graham McAllister
'Kittiwake K2' is for 2 channel radio control, you control the rudder and the sail
position just like the full size craft. One standard and one micro size servos
are used, Hitec HS-55 micro servo recommended.

The new Kittiwake K2 features carbon
booms, rudder shaft and an innovative
carbon strip forestay to increase jib
sail efficiency. Increased sail area
really makes K2 move in a wide range
of wind speeds.

Construction is based on an accurate
ScaleSailing foam core which you
cover with thin plywood panels to
form the hull. Most parts are laser cut
for accuracy and ease of use.

Comprehensive step-by-step building
instructions include a photo CD
containing over 230 construction and
sailing photos. The CD will play on
your computer and most DVD players.

Despite their small size there is ample
room for the radio control installation.
The servo tray holds one standard
servo to operate the sails, a micro
servo to operate the rudder and the
switch. A 4 cell 'AA' battery and
receiver fit on the hull floor.
