Any news on mast cracks

Greg Vos

Been reading the Xenon threads having rebuilt one for a student a while back I found cracks IMO they started due to bad drilling practice and incorrrect deburing?

I did install the factory SB recommendation of the additional plates and the new thicker wall mast supplied by Artur.
This did introduce some addition but unharmfull stick shake.

Wondering how many of you are flying with the original OEM mast and if any cracks have manifested around the top mounting points?
Any advise or comments will be most welcome.

Greg, my crash data of Xenons may be informative.
Safe flying!
