Knife edge and knife edge slips are really fun with a Cub. I'm trying to model this one after the Super Cub! PA18 maybe?? It will just be a sport scale. I'm not much of a scale nut, just like to push the limits of my understanding!!:eek:

Yes on spins, yes on knife edges, no on hovering. Cubs aren't supposed to do any of those but a slow knife edge is awesome on a Cub.

Agreed!! This will not have enough power to hoooover anyhow! but touch and goes from knife edge slips keep things interesting!! In tight hammer heads with touch and goes are fun as well.
 
Elevators completed for now. I'm not going to join them until I figure out if I'm going to run one servo or two!! I also cut another E3 and sandwiched a piece of 1/8" balsa in between the two and made a solid 3/8" piece for the horn mount. You can also see the amount of plans stretch in the last photo.
