Sailboat help needed

I built a sailboat from a kit 10 years ago. Don't know the name or make. Maybe someone can help with this. Hull is 45 inches long and the mask is 63 inches from deck up. What size radio and servos do I need? Including pic for identification help. I have a smaller sailboat so I have an idea of the servo setup somewhat. Thanks Ron

Re: Sailboat help needed

Ron, I think you'd do better in a hobby forum, or a model boat forum, or simply calling one of the big mail-order hobby shops for radio control equipment.

You built a model boat. This forum is mainly about the kind you actually go boating in.

Re: Sailboat help needed

It is a Dumas star 45 and I built it many years ago. I found some of my notes. I also have 3 other sailboats that are not built some smaller and some bigger. One is 34" a 52" and a 64" all aprox. See Pics. Now I really don't have any thoughts as to servos and a radio to buy. The 7990 servo suggestiom for the arm servo is good but what else is needed.I know the local hobby shop can't help. I have two 2 channel radios one channel 66 and one 88. both are used in smaller kit boats. Maybe I can use one of these radios for this boat also to save some money??? Thanks Ron
