On downwind for landing on runway 03, a clevis pin securing the right-hand rudder cable came out. The spring on the left-hand pedal pulled the left rudder and the aircraft entered a spiral dive to the left. By applying full right aileron (back elevator) and reducing speed to a minimum, the pilot was able to stop the rotation and regain control. In a full cross control descent, the pilot was able to land the aircraft in a paddock adjoining the airport, going through a star picket fence.
