Steve,
I experienced elevator flutter in an SA300 below 140mph when the wire going to the elevator trim broke. It was made worse by some slop in the elevator linkage. Remember the caveat in the other posts about well maintained! In any case when the above items were corrected the flutter disappeared and remains gone. I have been above 160 but maybe not to 180 since.

built according to plans and maintained correctly you should have no problems.

Bob
