Re: GU Canards flying

Richard, I have a couple of used rods that have been cut quite near the actuating arms so they have the welded part which is probably the important bit. They are not rusty though. I also have some more of the same tubing so they could be joined. Let me know if it's of interest.
Incidentally, I also have a promo picture of your plane from when it was new - which you are welcome to.

Thanks Jon, and everyone who has contributed to this thread. I have
an LS1 on my early Tri Q 200, which I did wonder if it was at one
stage, until PB pointed out it had strainers and cambered elevators,
which was a relief as we get lots of rain and bugs in UK. I have just
taken the elevators off for repairs to the strainers, but I find that
the Elevator rods are in poor condition and need to be changed for
new ones. Has anybody got a pair for sale please, or the drawing to
make some new ?
