The time has come for true innovation in motion with the new Helix PD Pedal Drive. Featuring a 6:1 gear ratio precision-tuned to a 14 x 17 two-bladed fixed pitch prop, the Helix PD is the most efficient and intuitive pedal system ever engineered. Fully deployed, the system is optimized for maximum speed in exchange for less effort so you can be hands-free to fish all day. A groundbreaking auto-raising mast achieves zero draft with a spring-loaded kick pedal, and the unit can be further stowed forward and out of the way to complete the 3-phases of possible positioning. Tuned to the proven performance of Wilderness Systems' S.M.A.R.T. Hull designs, and currently compatible with the new Radar model family, the Helix PD Pedal Drive is the definitive advantage. The Helix PD comes complete with rudder kit and hand-control steering knob.

I've only had a chance to use this once, so far. The pedal unit is smooth and quiet. I installed this on my 11.5 Wilderness Radar. The on-line installation instructions was well done and installation was easy. I'm really looking forward to trying some saltwater fishing with the pedal unit.
I have two of the Helix PD Pedal Drive units that are used on my 11.5 and 13.5 Radar kayaks. Used them for the first time today. It took a little while to get everything situated just right. The units worked very well. One word of caution - stay out of weed beds, under water plants, etc. They like to get snarled in the propeller.
