Just found and watched a couple of great RC sailing ship videos on YouTube. Added one to this thread as it features the HMS Surprise (and others).

Had to add the second one here (not permitted to have more than one by administrator). The second video has more than a tad bit of literary license as it were. But it's by the original builder of the RC HMS Surprise and I found it pretty enjoyable. Cheers.

Might have to look into this one since that series is what I started to read at the announcement of this game... had to learn up on some things :D
