Re: Stick limiter replacement

The stick limiter is under the pilots seat. It controls the travel of the elevators when you add power with full flaps on a go around.You check it on preflight ( don’t you?). This is to prevent the pilot from over rotating on a go around.

Re: Stick limiter replacement

Has anyone removed the stick limiter and not replace it? The 42 NG and VI have a path for total removal. Supplement S-08 revision 2014-04-01.

Stick limiter replacement

Just ordered a new stick limiter for my airplane. Only a 6 week wait and a minor sum of just under $3000.00.
Part number for a T.D.Y. aircraft is I M D 3-24-30-A-50.

Try Bug Blaster. from Aircraft Spruce. Spray it on wait a few seconds and wipe it off.
