Default Hangar 9 Piper Cub 40

Would like to know if it is worth the trouble to clip the wings of the H-9 Cub or just spend the money and get a TWMClipped Wing Cub 1/5. No one I know has ever clipped the wings of a cub. I'm looking at weight also, as I want it to fly light and both the H-9 and the TWM 1/5 are close to being the same weight. Thanks. TJ

The problem as I see it comes from the scale wing strut system is set up for the full length version. The struts are made from metal and the ARF has built in wing attach points. You would have to cut and reweld the struts and redo the wing's attach points which I am not sure would be on or near a "closer-in" rib. You can't ignore redoing the struts because they are essential to support the wing. A lot of work!!!!

Wow,sounds like a lot of hassle. I wish I had access to both planes with no covering. I've can't seem to find a TWM 1/5 scale anywhere.Therein lies the problem. Thanks GarySS for the heads up. I'd never considered the wing support.
