These need to be frequently trimmed, in conjunction with the rudder, so as to trap as much wind as possible and gain maximum speed. On model sailboats this is achieved through servo motors that are controlled via a hand held radio transmitter. Experienced enthusiasts who have already owned several commercial sailboats bought at hobby stores often decide to build their own. This may be because they want to experiment with new ideas.
