KEEPING THE H-STAB ON THE GLIDER


I had a Sagitta 600 with a removeable flying stab. One wire was fixed and was the pivot. The other was connected to the elevator control and floated thorugh a slot so you could move the stab. It looked very similar to this glider.

We would bend the wires so they were slightly out of parallel with each other. Never had a problem. This one looks like the Sagitta tail. So the slighly bent wire should work.

Some pilots used beeswax on the wires, which is a little sticky. You could easily take it apart but it would tend to stay put during the flight. Again, never saw one come off.

I think I saw in the instructions that they suggest using a glue stick which would be similar to the beeswax method. It would hold but not be permanent. you would slide the wire through, then put a little glue stick on it and slide it into the stab half.

The grub screw idea mentioned above would work too but I doubt it will be needed.
