re: my Norseman crash:

Found the black box among the beans.  Downloaded the FDR.  It turned out the elevator servo gears stripped.  There was a click and a jerk in the elevator when I tested it but I thought it was the pushrod touching a former.  When there was load on the elevator, it probably stripped the tooth next to it.  A progressive failure.

Close the chapter on that one.  The final report from the FAA will still read "Pile-it error" ;)

Regarding your question Bill:  @Frank v B , what kind of servo was it?

@Bill B , I can answer this on behalf of Frank.  It was a 'broken' servo.   ::)

Bill,

re:"what kind of servo was it?"

It was a Hitec HS 81.  I took it apart and the teeth were mush.

I can just imagine the download of the CVR black box.  "that f@#%ing Frank.  We're going down..  Bleeepppp." ;D
