Main shaft has slight crack and slop as does swash causing pitch issues
I'll have to see if I have the SR in Phoenix and give it a try. Sorry to hear about your MCPX. I know I have lost a couple of swashes due to the balls breaking off. I am surprised that there are still supply chain issues but there are. I was talking to my LHS about the Blade 450. We agreed that the 450 class of pilot is not going to accept the same sort of supply chain issues that Horizon has with its smaller birds. Align pilots are used to parts being there from multiple sources not only locally but globally.

The Lost Airmen in Muskoka

Raz, the CBC announced this evening that the second of two B-17 Flying Fortress' was finally found after 71 years in Lake Muskoka. The remains of the crew were also found. Another mystery of WWII put to rest.

I was just reading about it since you mentioned it. They lost two smaller planes looking for it in a storm. I'm sure the families are relieved now that they can finally bury their loved ones. Great story. Thanks for sharing...

Mike.

I'm sure the CBC mentioned the B17. HOWEVER, I did do some double-checking and you are correct. The aircraft was the A17.

I almost got into a fist fight with this little arrogant f.ck that works with me, over this and a few other things

I said I read it was a B17 - which I thought I did, BUT it turns out that it was a A17 Northrup.

Lol Ryan don't start WWIII over this. I have had some trouble makers at work too, just told them where to go and walked away. They were the losers as they always needed me before I needs them. If they bitched to my boss they were told to treat me properly or they would get no help from me LOL.
