I am new to RC yachiting and have bougth a Racing Micro Magic 2014-V2 as a first venture, I am a little confused now i have opened the Kit and checked the parts and hopefully someone here can help me. My confusion is that i seem to have some different parts than those specified in the instructions.
1) The Mast? I have 2 lengths of hollow carbon , 1 660 mm Long (6mm O/D and 5.1mmI/D) and 1 805mm long 5mm O/D and 3.5mm I/D . There is no aluminium sleeve or hardwood dowel in the kit as described in the instructions.
2) The keel/mast support are already glued together and have abs supports rather than the wood.
3) The mainsail has the holes in the Luff for the mast rings but no reinforcing black stickers.
Do i have the wrong parts or has there been an update that is not in the instructions.
First of all congratulations getting hold of the new version kit. Can you tell us where so others can purchase them?
On the question of the mast. Don't worry about the lack of Aluminium and wood. That's a good thing! Just use the carbon. 6mm for the mast. 5mm for the booms.
Keel / mast support. That's good too. Just glue them into the hull square.
The mainsail may need some extra stiffening depending on the cloth supplied in the new kit. If you have some just cut pieces out and use a hot pin to push new holes through. Where are you from? Do you have a local club? Other than that good luck!
