View Full Version : pre-rotator cable
My flex cable broke on my AC Tandem, I have a new one but haven't
got the old one removed yet.
Any special do's or don't's, watch out for's ect.
Your thoughts on remove and replace please!

Make sure your new cable has the right twist.
If it doesn't it will uncoil.
Ask Steve McGowan about the one that untwisted on Todd Day's gyro.

Just curious benj, what engine, what rotor, clutched prop or no?
It has a Hirth (?? I'd like to replace??), 28' dragon wings, yes, it has a clutch on the prop.
I only have about 30 hrs in it. So I'm pretty new to this type of flying, trying to get instruction, and liciencing ect..

I have the Elite Tandem AC F30 with 28 ft DW Tall Tail and the Hirth. I got mine used and have been working out some potentially deadly kinks with my CFI Chris Burgess. Have you had any engine issues? Send me some pics
