    After seeing Bobs hinges fail I'm in the active process of removing all Pilots hinges..... Looking forward to see what should replace them with..

    Good point Bob and Dave... Really no reason those hinges should have failed.

    Ed was telling me that Extreme Flight and AJ are made in the same factory so wonder what their hinges are like?
