International Moth - Hydrofoiling Sailing Dinghy

About This File





Some Notes:

The International Moth was quite a challenge to get going in X-Plane. The basic principles of sailing are never easy to replicate, and hours of tweaking in V9.7 left me with this version. I find it fun to play with, I hope you do too!

The steering is sluggish, but it does not create drag like a water rudder. The twitchy rudder of the moth, I'm afraid, will never be super-realistic based on the platform I have created. The speed though, does reflect the actual thing, with foiling capabilities at about 9 kts + of boat speed, and a top speed of 21 kts.

The model is driven by a jet, not 'sailing' per say, but yet again the chances of getting a wind driven model in x-plane to foil is very unlikely. It's the annoying lack of lateral resistance!

I built this model in v9.7, so I can't guarantee that it will work exactly the same in v10. It probably will...
