Shouldn't we be alarmed that rudder cable breaks have been occuring in
Velocitys for years, and when still secure them the same way.

Doesn't the fact that needing full rudder when landing in turbulence or
crosswind could also result in a firmly applied brake and a resultant broken
gear leg mean that a design change is needed?
