Sorry to say but not that familiar with cubs. How big will this plane be. And what is the expected weight going to be. Looks like you really going go all out making this A scale as possible. Looks like this is going to be a interesting build and will be enjoying the ride to completion.

1/3 scale is 140ish inches so 12' wingspan. 30 lb plane.

That is big plane and at 30 lbs plus you can put a reasonable big gas engine in that. Just the drag of a 12 ft span wing and all the rest will take some power to get going and of the ground. I owned one cub in my life and it was my second one plane it was from Goldberg I belive it was rated at a 60 glow. Every body said it would be a great second plane well it was, and not. When there was no wind you could not ask for a nicer plane to fly loved it but if the wind picked up and was not straight down the runway that was one difficult plane to fly. The good times I can remember with the cub was when I put it on floats and spent day on the water with no wind I just could never get enough of that.
