So, the first accounts of what may have happened indicate some kind of rudder control failure. Looking forward to the rest of the story....

Is there a need to get ahead of the story?

Is there a need for secrecy?

If I had an Arcus I sure would want to hear more before my next flight.
There were multiple rudder failures over the years, resulting in at least one bail out few years ago, and another almost bail out, due to the cable breaking at the point it exits the rudder pedal. This is an area each pilot should inspect regularly. In other cases the pedals got disengaged from the lock position.
Also if you have a passenger, it is always a good idea to check if they still have control. At least one bail out was prevented in the last moment this way.
Not saying this is what happened, just a reminder of what can and did happen before.
So glad Dave and his passenger are ok. We had enough bad news this year already.

Someone named Daniel Sazhin posted something about it on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/soarer151/p...16332921178095

"Sorry for not posting yesterday. Dave Nadler's accident took the wind out of my sails. Luckily, he and his passenger parachuted to safety and they are OK! Dave is a bit banged up from his landing, but otherwise discharged from the hospital and okay. The air force kid was totally fine. It seems it was some kind of structural failure, with the rudder control failing in some fashion. Details are quite murky and speculative, but it seems bizarre."

How about we all just tone it down a bit on pressuring for "the scoop". Dave and Spence both went through something pretty traumatic. Put yourself in their shoes. You jumped out of a plane, landed on a rocky slope on the side of a mountain, and were there without shade or water for hours. Now, you have people asking you "What happened?" Heck, it may be weeks before they remember the sequence of events. If you have an Arcus and are now afraid to fly it, well, I would say that is your problem, not Dave's.

Thanks Steve. That really needed to be said.

Agreed......basically my thoughts on my earlier post.
Glad they are basically fine.

I am sure Dave will give info, maybe tempered by official analysis as to NOT make other issues.

Glad they are able to give thoughts later.
The quest for info, or, worse, armchair quarterbacking is not needed now.
Wait for facts.

I believe that is what the "real UH" was alluding to.

As an aside, yes, maybe other Arcus owners need to look at rudder cables......but, this is just speculation at this point.....

Has it not occurred to you all that Dave may not know what actually failed,
and is wisely waiting for wreckage to be examined before making a statement?
