    Not mass balanced & cable failure

    Normal 0 21 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

    I found that many certified LSA aircrafts and some standard FAR 23 certified don't have mass-balanced surfaces. I'm interested in how they are designed to show freedom from flutter, especially control surface flutter and if these aircrafts can handle a disconnected freefloating surface emergency (due to cable failure, for example).

    If they are not prone to develop flutter in normal operation, how things may change if, for example, the aileron cable fails?
