Looks like they are manufactured in Germany.

Standard Windvane Servo-Pendulum type of gear with probably a similar articulating mechanism as the Cape Horn system. They also offer a "Lite" system for smaller boats, and a "Master" system with it's own rudder similar to the Hydrovane models.

Thanks I got into the site but couldnt understand the german. Any way what I am trying to do is compile information from everyone that has a windpilot of any make as to how precise they steer. Mainly I am interested in the performance in as much as the damping of the yawing effect. I have read just about everything from the makers but can not impartial information. As I am sure you know anyone that makes them will tell you that theirs is the best. Wel thanks again. If any of you out there using a windpilot of any make can give me some facts as to how your system works I would be very grateful.
Regard s Pete
