The rudder system makes it!
Installation wasnt very difficult. The up down line didnt work well with included hardware so I used the double pad eyes instead of the pad eyes included. Works great now the line doesnt bind now. Would be an improvement to include the double eye pads make it 5 stars with that.
Works really well down wind. Tacking is somewhat limited but does seem to work OK with wind direction up to about +/- 60 degrees from the rear
Assembly instructions could have been better. Once installed working fine.
