Does anyone know if the M-5 uses the same horizontal stabilizer as the M-6? Just damaged the right one on my M-6, and found a used one from an M-5 that I’m on my way to pick up. I think they are the same, but thought it worth asking.

Yeah, I picked up a used one yesterday. Will see if I can make it fit tomorrow probably. I’m told the issue will be that the securing bolt holes won’t line up, as they are custom-drilled on each aircraft. I’ve got some ideas though.

The damaging event was not a big deal; just must have tossed up a rock on landing, as there is a big hole in the horizontal and a dent in its rear tube. Given how I use the plane, I expect things like this once in a while.
