runout789, Good luck with your Cub flight tomorrow. I will be thinking of you as I take off with my Cub tomorrow. For Kansas in January, your weather tomorrow sounds great. Make the most of it and enjoy. Make sure all the controls go the correct way, the fuel tank is full, the engine is needled just a touch rich so there are no dead sticks, throttle up gradually as you start your take off roll, get plenty of airspeed before lift off, small gentle inputs on the sticks in the air, get altitude to trim it, make several practice landing approaches during your flight, relax and fly the pattern, recall those practice approaches as you set up to land. Don't be afraid to abort your take off if is not going well, line back up and go again. Ditto on your landing set up, go arounds are fine. That's all my "words of wisdom". Have fun!
