Just got the first review on a flying "Steel Bungee"
"Yesterday I flew Rick's 750 with the new spring and what an amazing difference!"
We now have a bunch of hours on our own "Steel Bungee" and also have the V-shaped nylon block milled flat. I have tried to introduce rudder flutter to see if I could loose the rudder at VNE and all other speeds but it is just fine.
The suspension is now actually moving up and down, rather than mostly being locked into the top position so a little WD-40 was used to keep everything sliding quietly.
The suspension is great, the rudder is free and we are very happy about everything related to the workings. i will still add a small hydraulic damper to the system to introduce a little calibrated and adjustable drag on the rudder system
