I just listened to podcast on the Avweb site of the interview Mathew Heintz gave concerning the flutter issue. Zenith seems to be doing a good job of developing information regarding the question surrounding flutter. They have an independent German consultant team doing a complete evaluation of the design as well as working with the FAA to supply them with all the information that they need for their own evaluation. The podcast is on Avweb's saturday post about Sun N Fun for anyone who might be interested.

I just listened to the podcast. Good stuff overall...but where did Mathieu get the idea that the Yuba City crash had loads of +9/-8G?! That wasn't in the NTSB report.

I just went online and was able to access it again at 5:30 EST. Is it possible you have to be "registered" to be able to download the podcast? It is listed under Sun N Fun 2009 podcast #9
