This catamaran is a stable and speedy model which uses a two-function proportional radio and incorporates a quick-release clutch for the sails, giving instant and complete control. It has been sailed all day without the necessity of touching it, from a deck-chair on the pondside, and however the wind changes control remains.
Deep V hulls give very good stability, and the absence of a centre cabin helps, since if the model is steeply heeled with one hull in the air, the wind can blow through the between-hull slatting and the model rights itself at the first lull, or on release of the sails. It has never capsized yet.
