This version Protei 05.5.x is really a Protei 002 enhanced. I started building this Proto to re-create the sensation I had with Protei-002 to the team, because often in our group discussions there are some unanswered questions that would be addressed by simply using a functional articulate sailing RC Boat.
The length is 108cm, in 3 equal large part of 38cm each. The hull is 12cm wide, symmetrical. The mast is also 108cm high above the deck, it is a very simple boat in geometrical terms. Made of 5cm insulation polystyrene and 0.3cm regular plywood. The mast is a PVC electric tube, the sails are strong advertising plastified fabric. It is a heavy unit but it has a lot of buoyancy, I hope it will be a good test platform, the control box is big, we should be able to fit a lot of stuff there even if the overall boat is small. We'll need a lot of ballast weight I think.
