Another odd and end update… when I was in Sebastian for my transition training Scott Swing was working on these. Andy has a much slicker way to do this, but this is easy and, probably, just as effective… Scott’s answer was to create a little deflector for the elevator torque tube opening that would move the water about 1/2″ away from the fuselage so it would stream harmless past the opening rather than enter the fuselage. It’s held in place with Silicone. Mine was slightly complicated by the fact there are two colors of paint here. Oh well. I think it came out nice. As usual, Jerry sprayed the paint for us.
Andy’s solution was to do basically the same, but on the inside, then capture the water and dump it overboard
Checking the fit
