This ruder (seemingly such a simple detail) is the product of a long-term evolution of the making and use of steering wheels on our boats.
From the history of the issue:
At the beginning of eco-activity, we rode on the rudders with the shaft (baler) with a diameter of 3 mm.
A wheel with such a shaft is all good. Except for one - a model with such a steering wheel.
Designed for individual driving ... There were almost no cases when
after hitting a buoy, an opponent's model or some kind of floating in
hindrance to the water, so that the steering axle remains flat, stand up so to speak.
Almost always bent.
Then an axle (boomer) with a diameter of 4 mm was applied.
Things went more fun, but ... when jumping rivals' boats (if
it happened), they began to break out with * meat * completely gelmport ...
They strengthened the helmports, and began to use the wheel with a baler with a diameter of 5 mm for a snack ...
Now the maximus that can be bent is the steering wheel ...
As a result, we are pleased to offer you the top of the helmsman eco-evolution ...
The steering wheel has an axis (baler) with a diameter of 5 mm,
Axis (baler) soldered to the steering wheel with PSS solder (melting point 900 degrees),
The axle (baller) of the steering wheel is vprana at an angle of 5 degrees, with respect to the front except for the steering wheel.
The axis (baller) is made of * black * wire purchased in Germany from Graupner.
Steering wheel made of stainless steel with a thickness of 1.3 mm.
The rudder feather is profiled and preformed, roughly processed into a teardrop-shaped section.
I can tell you a tedious task ...
Steering wheel dimensions:
Width above: 20 mm.
Bottom width: 14 mm.
Steering wheel height: 55 mm.
Steering wheel (baler) height: 43 mm
Steering wheel thickness: 1.4 mm.
Steering need to finish. The main grunt work, we sat down for you. You need to * bring it up to condition * and cut the steering axle to the desired height and that's it.
In general - if you want to make your life-saving easier, buy; my advice to you ......
