Default Hangar 9 J-3 Cub 40 Question

I have the older version Cub and I'm giving it an overhaul. While I was checking everything I noticed that I have 2 degrees negative incidence (Up in the front) on the wing. The stab is zero. Is this the norm? I can't find any info.

Hi Phatbob02,
if the model has 2 degrees up at the leading edge of the wing, it is Positive Incidence and should be ok for that aircraft.

Cheers, Bill

My bad. Your right. I was reading the protractor on the negative side. I'm going to fly her today. It's been about 10 years since I last touched her and I remember it being a little squirly. I went over it and had to add 10 oz. to the nose. I installed a new Spektrum and went over the engine.
Thanks Bill!
