Default RE: In flight CA hinge failure...


It's possible you may have damaged one or more prior to flight and didn't notice it? I'm not a big fan of CA hinges either but they usually seem to do OK. I prefer the hinge points where I can fit them in. Keep an eye on the remaining hinges.
I guess that's possible somehow. Not sure what I did wrong. So far CA hinges have worked great for me. I will also watch for flutter next time just to rule that out.

Yes, I will definetly keep an eye on the remaning hinges. I will try to "stress test" them at home to see if they appear brittle.
