As you can see, we reverted back to the factory pitch trim system after having a couple of issues with the Strong pitch trim. We had a couple of instances where it simply locked on overtorque, and now there is a motor retention AD out on them. It would probably work, but we made the change. We ended up mounting our trim spring upside down, as you can see it pushed on the back of the radios in the standard up configuration. Now that we got rid of our old, bulky Blue Mountain gold box AHRS in favor of the GRT system, we can mount in on the pilot side without issue.
