About This File
X-Plane 9.70+ International Moth, hydrofoiling sailing dinghy. The International Moth was quite a challenge to get going in X-Plane. The steering is sluggish, but it does not create drag like a water rudder. The twitchy rudder of the Moth, will never be super-realistic based on the platform created. The speed though, does reflect the actual thing, with foiling capabilities at about 9 kts + of boat speed, and a top speed of 21 kts. Built in v9.7, so not guaranteed that it will work exactly the same in v10. The basic principles of sailing are never easy to replicate, and hours of tweaking in v9.7 resulted in this version.
