    Are you going to articulate (variable camber) the bow planes?

    Last of the outfittings.

    Spent most of the yesterday on designing, tweaking of the fwd dive plane until I had a working prototype.

    The plane is a “flap rudder” type or “multi-section” rudder. The hinged aft section gives the rudder an extra control surface therefore enhances its efficiency.
    When the helm is applied the angle of attack of the main control surface changes (working of a normal rudder), in addition the angle of attack of the flap also changes.
    If the main rudder rotates 45 the flap turns an additional 45. The flap is making a 90 angle to horizontal.

    Pictures showing both 0 and 40

    Grtz,
    Bart

    Recently I started making live videos of the work in the shop for those who are really bored.
    I received some questions on the stern tooling so I made a video on demolding and explaining the use of the cores and stuff.

    Here is the link, https://fb.watch/2KO3ft8_Ih/
