what if someone would model the elevator using finite element analysis and apply a gust load to determine the failure points? I don't have the time now but maybe over the Winter. seems like it would be a good project.
may also want to look at the dynamic response.
RV-9A, Tip-up, Superior O-320, roller lifters, 160HP, WW 200RV, dual impulse slick mags, oil pressure = 65 psi, EGT = 1300F, flight hours = 600+ for all
Simplicity is the art in design.
