I'm still in the planning stages of building an experimental super cub 150. I hope to start this summer. Just wondering if there are any good sources out there for experimental parts, ie. wing spars, wing ribs, or just about anything for that matter. Also I'm located in Sioux Falls SD. Is there anyone close out there that I could ask the occasional question?

Most of us start here: http://www.northlandaircraft.com

You can't beat the price of Ernie's experimental wing kits at http://www.de-aircraft.com

You can also check out http://www.wagaero.com for some things. Order their catalog.

If you want a tack-welded PA-18 fuselage instead of finished, check with Spraker. He has an ad in the classifieds.

Then start scrounging around! :D

I have the Northland CD. It's a great resource but is a little overwhelming. I could use some kind of an erection manual.

Hey, storm_pilot

Right in your own back yard in Brandon is Mark Ericson with Dakta Cub www.dakotacub.com

You might also consider Kling Air down in Udall, KS (outside Wichita)

Good luck,

I agree also that you should visit with Mark Erickson in Brandon. Lots of cub knowledge and he should be able to help you. If you get down to Yankton look me up sometime.............Dave
