A 315mm long (class legal) Footy hull. For the sails, you can choose the MMD OPUS rig, a MacRig, or your favourite una rig.
Banshee is designed for 2 channel radio control. A mini servo controls the sails and a micro size servo controls the rudder.
You control the sail position and the rudder just like on the full size craft.
Banshee uses the
unique MMD (formerly ScaleSailing) foam
core construction system. You can easily build a strong and attractive
boat with this method. The construction is based on an accurate foam core which you cover with thin plywood and balsa panels to form the
hull. An added advantage of the foam core system is that your boat is unsinkable!
Most parts are laser cut for accuracy and ease of use. Some basic model building skills are required.
