Default RE: J3 cub, crash on take off nearly every time.

I'm glad dabigboy said it before I had to... Stalls have nothing to do with speed, it is all angle of attack. A stall can happen at any speed short of sub-sonic. It's not as noticable on R/C aircraft because their thrust-to-weight ratios are so high that simply slamming full throttle will remedy a stall almost immediately (by changing the angle of attack, not increasing speed).
