3rd flight of the day today for my favorite 40 sized in my hanger coming out of a dive I heard the flutter and instantly thought it was the dreaded elevator issue these things have and upon finding the plane in 3 foot of weeds way far out in the field found that all control surfaces were intact and links connected and the flutter came from a broken elevator control horn, emailed pics to Great Planes maybe they will take care of it maybe not anyway it goes I will be flying another in a few weeks with upgraded control horns.
