Mark from Armidale NSW


I have a 95-25 Ausflight drifter with a 582 and fly out of Armidale


I would like to draw peoples attention to a problem that i found with the drifter fitted with a trim tab.


If this effects you, then look at the cable that runs between the elevator and the tail plane itself..you will find that it is rubbing into the rear spar, where it threads through


Mine is a 1989 and I have put approx 673 hours on it since purchase in 2000 and found the rear spar cut one third of the way through.


I contacted Wayne fisher and he said he had never herd of it but checked out all the planes in his shed and got back to me saying all of them were effected including his relativley new experimental aerobatic drifter look alike. He is designing a quick fix for the problem
