So far it's 4 votes for the full wing and 5 votes for the short one.


As for lightly wing loaded planes that don't seem to want to land with the engine running - there are several reasons for that.

Wrong prop.
Idle speed too high.
Engine way over sized.
Pilot error.

All of which are easily fixed.

Re: Clipped wing or full wing

Thanks every one I have decided to go full wing . I agree that a cub is a cub and should be flown like one. I like to go to the pond and do touch and goes and lazy circuits.Saving the aerobatic flying for my 300 Extra at the field

Re: Clipped wing or full wing

If you drown a four stroke you have to partly disassemble it cause running it will not get the water out of the cam bearings or rocker box area. A 4" pitch prop at 10,000 RPM will give 37.8 MPH. This is a good RPM for that motor. The formula is quite simple Just multiply the pitch by the RPM and that will give you inches in a minute then you have to convert it into miles per hour.

Re: Clipped wing or full wing

Yeah but I don't run a 4 stroke at 10,000 rpm.
Also a cheap asp 61 fs got drowned a few times and running it a lot to high temp kept it in shape. That was underpowered on a 80" cub!

Yes!!

Prop her for around 8500 rpm on the ground and she will be so realistic the cops will get panic calls "I saw a float plane go in over there Officer... "!

Please don't forget to post some pictures!
