Nice report, enjoyed reading it. You're lucky to have favourable flying conditions at this time of year! I lost a stab on my Sharon in July but was able to land it with one stab. The actuator pin pushed too far in when I put the stabs on. I later noticed that the hole had no stop at the end of it. It was just catching so that during the wiggle check it worked, but during a mild dive it slipped out. The stab rotated and sheared off into 1000s of hectares of oats never to be found. The rods were carbon. Another thing to watch for with carbon is if it gets accidental stress you may not even realise till it's too late. Someone (adult, child, dog )could walk by your plane and unintentionaly bump it.
May replacement stabs just came in the other day, yippee!
