The Australian Micro Magic Experience
The boat for all ages, the boat for the novice as well as for the most competitive sailor, the boat that can be sailed anywhere, the boat that is officially recognised in 14 other countries. Is this in fact the perfect boat for the perfect pastime?

A New Kid on the Block!!

The boat below, the Micro Magic, is not a 12-Metre, nor is it even an America's Cup Class yacht, but it is a boat that has become very popular in Australia in the very short time that it has been available is some numbers. It is a boat that meets the needs of absolute newcomers to the sport as well as the most competitive competition sailors. This boat is good for our hobby/sport. It's popularity is growing almost daily, and i would not be surprised if it was not soon recognised as an official Class by the ARYA. That's why it appears here. Because it is good for the sport. But be warned! Exposure to this boat can become addictive.

The Micro Magic is a small radio controlled sailing yacht designed and manufactured in Germany.  In recent years it has seen as explosion of popularity in Germany and Holland, where very active Clubs have developed a grass-roots racing class for the boat. The Dutch club alone tallies over a thousand race-registered vessels.

The MM makes both a fantastic entry boat and a high-performance class racer.  Its quality, both in component materials and performance, stands well above similar sized yacht models.  It has virtually all the tuning, trimming and performance of larger One Metre models, but its size makes it a perfect car-fit for spontaneous afternoon trips to the pond.  The kit is easy to build without special tools and designed for a standard 2-channel stick radio with regular servos, perfectly balancing investment and performance.

The Australian Association is now being formed and sail numbers being issued.  Ideal as a boat to sail on your own for fun or an excellent one-design fleet racing machine.  For all the information on the MM International Associations, go to www.micromagic.info/news.php.

The September 2007 Marine Modelling International magazine has a review on the boat (our part #Mag1/Sep07, $12.60).

Product Information

MICRO MAGIC is based on the relatively small one-man yachts which compete in trans-Atlantic regattas. The modern design of the hull, keel, rudder and rig endow the boat with high-performance sailing characteristics in light to moderate winds combined with simple handling. The boats compact size solves all manner of transport problems. Although the model is within most peoples modelling budgets and is very easy to build, MICRO MAGIC is quite capable of providing “real” sailing fun for young and old, beginner and advanced skipper alike. The model can be assembled from the kit in a very short time and requires only a few tools to complete. All the vacuum-moulded ABS parts are supplied CNC-trimmed to final size. The sails in the kit are ready-made and sewn in ultra-light sail fabric. The removable keel consists of a profiled glassfibre-reinforced keel fin and low-set ballast weight. The keel and the lightweight carbon-fibre mast fit in a strong keel/mast socket which is an integral part of the hull. Moulded-in recesses in the hull and deck shell dictate the correct position of the socket, so perfect alignment is automatic. The RC system components are also mounted on the socket and can be removed at any time, and maintenance is easy through the relatively large access opening. The simplest of RC systems is sufficient to control the model. Adding one low-cost standard servo provides full control of the sails in addition to the rudder. This enables the skipper to steer the boat on all possible courses, and extract maximum performance from the model.
