Kitchen Rudder Test Video




This test video shows a mock-up of a model kitchen rudder.  The wood boards open and close at the base of the rudder post.  A servo actuates the boards that simulate the action of the shells on a real kitchen rudder which provide fore/aft drive without reversing prop rotation.  A second servo (not shown) would replace the hand movement, to give Pt/Stbd steering.  The distance between the marker lines on the rear support is 6 inches.  Plans are in the works to use this type of rudder on a Bantam Tug.
