Re: Cheap Rudder Lock

Years ago someone posted a rudder lock ,that consisted of two pieces of strapping from the top of the rudder to the bottom ,I used it for years but have gone to the bungee method as it takes up less room when traveling.

The Rotax 915 IS would be a good replacement engine.

Make sure to get a good inspection on the metal edge, years ago I had a metal edge separation while in flight.

Re: RE: STATUS OF DISCOVERY AVIATION

Going experimental isn’t as easy as it sounds. You can’t just declare the airplane is experimental, could be difficult depending on the FISDO involved.
