Default RE: New Builder /Input on Kit and buying framing materials

It's not the best trainer, but it's the best Cub IMHO.

Make sure you build the clipped wing - some people tend to think that the clipped wing will make it too "Sporty" but in reality, the full-size wing was designed originally back in the 30's when engines weren't much more than a squirrel-in-a-cage, and it NEEDED that huge wing to get airborne.

Once decent engines were developed, anyone who could afford a better engine clipped the wings to a more "Normal" length.
