Default RE: 1/4 scale Cub builders

Try the Stits Lite! It's what most Cubs at the Masters are covered with. Graeme Mears Cub, and Mariano Alfafara were both winners and both covered with Stits Lite. It's lighter than dope and faster to finish. It's readily available at: http://www.stits.com

The spruce stringers and longerons are a great idea and the gussets. Both add very little weight but lots of strength. The 120 is more than enough power but you can't beat the sound of the 160 twin. Just remember it's a classic and it's a Cub. You should have to fly it and not hang on the prop. Also, don't be afraid to put it on floats. It makes a great trainer on water and on land.
