"Johncondor , Any New Year pressies to share ?"

Following MichaelP's helpful story of the failed elevator gap seal we decided to try fitting a temporary seal. As the gap between the elevator and tail plane is only about an eighth of an inch we did not really expect much effect. How wrong we were. It has transformed the trim handling beyond our wildest dreams and removed a long standing problem.

Next job- to do it properly and remove the fixed trim tab that someone fitted in the dim and distant past.

This is one excellent exchange - which adult style occurs in spots between other nonsense subjects !

Off subject :- If MichaelP recalls the Redhill Strut and his fleet of a/c ca. 1970's perhaps he'd kindly contact me ?

By the way, any Condor owners.

When we had ours, some eejit whose name may well have begun with G managed to taxi over the fuel cap / gauge combo, wrecking it. As a result, I designed and had made a new one - I have a box with the bits and drawings to build at least one more, now of no use since I no longer have a Condor.

Any use to anybody?
