This is just what i said Bill Reent's told me happened to him. When you get flutter, don't pull up. just chop the power, let it bleed off, he said. Which is what he did. He said the same thing about things bending in shocking ways. He said he was pulling out of a shallow dive at 221MPH, and due to having painted his plane and not re-balancing the ailerons and elevator for the extra weight of the paint, he encountered the sever flutter.
Glad you made it through. > Robert Gill posted in Rand Robinson KR-2S Aircraft .
