    Can you tell how you fixed it? Can you post pictures? I do not dare to drill in the kayak itself... Thanks for you help!

I have just bought a Tequila, and though I love it, I know what you mean. The problem is that the stern keel doesn't sit low enough when 2 people are on board. In duo config, with 1 person sitting aft, it handles fine, since the stern keel is more submerged.
I am working on a fixed rudder/skeg. Will post when I am successful.

Tom6455, please let me know which rudder you purchased? I'd like to fix a rudder onto my tequila kayak.

    BrentFD the canoe shop had a rudder & bracket. I riveted this bracket to the hull and as I did not set up a foot operated steering system it became a fixed rudder. I then used cable ties to fix this rudder in the centre. had to make a few adjustements to the cable ties to centre it, but it now works. when not in use I flip the rudder up & use a stretch tie to hold it up. not sure if i can upload a photo but if u give me yr email i will send one. [email protected] cheers

Loaded XPlane 10 on new iMac and rudder pedals no longer function?


My iMac has a CD/DVD drive, but I posted a X-Plane 10 pendrive to avoid inserting DVD #1 every session. It functions perfectly. Another point is to connect all peripherals (stick and pedals etc.) BEFORE launching X-Plane 10. Then calibrate your peripherals within XP 10.
I have no pedals set, but instead a pitch-stick with grip throttle and a Logitech joystick with twist grip to fly helicopters.

Carolina rudder does not work properly


Slider to which the pegs are attached is probably binding, take entire mechanism out (2 screws), and lubricate with silicone wax. If that doesn't work, replace sliders and pegs.

Yep, if rudder calibration values are OK, then there is a real problem with calibration, it can be a mechanical problem or a faulty rudder feedback unit. Follow procedure at page 93 of user manual :
AP35 Autopilot Instruction Manualto troubleshoot the error, if you cannot get rid of the error message you may have to replace the rudder feedback unit or to have the unit inspected by a technician.
