Prestwich Models trim tabs

So with the new 7.5cc now well underway, it was time to decide what tabs to use and get them in the boat.

Luckily Dave had his new designed ones in stock that use POM acetel material for the tab, inside a moulded expoxy housing. Actuation is via a 4mm arm which hopefully means a very strong and accurate tab. The use of a moulded housing should also make the installation easy, with a stronger bond than an aluminum alternative, and a little lighter.
