Default RE: In flight CA hinge failure...

A friend brought me a fuselage the other day. He had jammed the rudder into someones back while carrying it. In doing so he managed to destroy 2 of the CA hinges. I know they were OK that morning because I had looked the plane over for him before he flew it. I cut the remaining 2 CA hinges (one partially torn) and installed pinned hinges for him.
