While preflighting my sport cub I discovered my right side rudder horn was severely bent over and the left side was beginning to bend. Apparently the horn needs to be strengthen

Cubcrafters is working on a fix for it and will be contacting you with a kit soon. In meantime it is recommended you check your rudder horns and keep an eye on them. I am flying hull #6 with 97 hours now. I have about 25 of my hours on this sport cub (it was a demo previously) I am a student and am no doubt harder on the rudder horn than an experienced tailwheel pilot.

I am delivering my rudder to Cubcrafters this Monday to facilitate repair. The are very responsive and have already engineered the issue and come up with a solution!

The pics show the bent horn and the other side which is starting to bend.
