The racing Micro Magic has been developed to reflect progress in the Micro Magic regatta scene. In it standard form the boat represents a modified version of the original model designed for the ambitious regatta skipper. It is intended to compliment the earlier Micro Magic which has proved to be very popular.
The modern design of the hull, keel, rudder and rig endow the boat with high-performance sailing characteristics in light to moderate winds combined with simple handling. The boat´s compact size solves all manner of transport problems. Although the model is within most people´s modelling budgets and is very easy to build, MICRO MAGIC is quite capable of providing “real” sailing fun for young and old, beginner and advanced skipper alike.
The model can be assembled from the kit in a very short time and requires only a few tools to complete. All the vacuum-moulded ABS parts are supplied CNC-trimmed to final size. The sails in the kit are ready-made and sewn in ultra-light sail fabric, and are available in the colours red, blue and fluorescent yellow. The removable keel consists of a profiled glassfibre-reinforced keel fin and low-set ballast weight. The keel and the lightweight aluminium mast fit in a strong keel/mast socket which is an integral part of the hull. Moulded-in recesses in the hull and deck shell dictate the correct position of the socket, so perfect alignment is automatic.
The RC system components are also mounted on the socket and can be removed at any time, and maintenance is easy through the relatively large access opening. The simplest of RC systems is sufficient to control the model. Adding one low-cost standard servo provides full control of the sails in addition to the rudder. This enables the skipper to steer the boat on all possible courses, and extract maximum performance from the model.
