This past weekend we had winds gusting to 54 knots, right on the tail, and I wasn't able to safely turn the 'plane around at its parking spot. Broke an aileron pushrod. It's fixed now and all is well, but it looks as if bungy-cording the control stick down to the rudder pedals isn't good enough. I had tied the flaps externally so they wouldn't bang around. With the control stick bungy-ed the rudder and elevator survived fine, but they probably should have been locked as well.
Since there's no point in re-inventing the wheel, does anyone have a photo(s) (or description) of home-made gust-locks, particularly for the ailerons?
