I have a '68 Cardinal with the same stol kit that you have. Unfortunately sheets 3,4 an 5, p art of Drawing 1000 have disappeared. Do you still have the plane? Documents for the stol conversion? Any help would be appreciated. Noel Evans

I made mine similar to C420, but out of 1/4" plywood with a 4" piece between the 2 strips. This allows the plywood to form around the rudder while holding the rudder straight. Stress on cables, hinges and stops during a strong tailwind can
