    I'm not sure if its asymetrical or not Tom. It turns a lot tighter than shown on the video. I'm going easy on the rudder mechanism until I get it dialed in completely. That dam is bloody deep and its still quite cold so I'm avoiding a swim right now. The dog however, has no such inhibitions.

    It is quick. That video is the second one that I made whilst sorting out the bow planes - hence the speed. This is the first, and slighly more sedate version. https://youtu.be/y2C3tft2Guc

    Turning radius is decent and like David said it moves well! Is there a difference in turning radius between port and starboard?

    Thanks Dave. Pretty rough around the edges - perhaps they might be better described as "representational".

    Got a bit carried away with the idea of doing a PLAN Type 33G - ie, a new top section for the Romeo. Basic idea looks like this.
