    Brian,

    Look at Barnstormers under "Aerobatic....Pitts Special". Inexpensive and relatively complete projects for S 1 Pitts there. Good news about single seat is nobody to puke down the back of your neck......

    Oh, with a little practice, you can probably scare yourself enough to cover all the bases.

    I've never had anyone puke down the back of my neck, but they've puked everywhere else, all over the airplane, in my hat, down the shirt--then into the airplane.
    Cleaning the airplane will take the fun out of it, at least for me...

    Larry I watched you leave the WAD and your CWC really performs.

    I was heavy when leaving the WAD with 12 gals of fuel in the wing tank and eight gallons in the main tank along with full camping gear and a full belly from John Meads awesome breakfast ..... I really enjoy it.

    Thanks Larry Got all the info.

    Does anyone have contact info for Scootair LLC in VT? the current holder of STC SA525CE for installing an 85hp engine on the clipped wing cub?

    The CWC is really capable of quite a bit if properly flown. While I wouldn't suggest anyone go out and duplicate this you can see a low level airshow routine with an O-200 powered CWC at http://youtu.be/diVxtsc_IEM

    Thanks Todd,

    I remember in the late 80's or very early 90's driving from Newton out to Dodge City to see you fly the Chipmunk and Jo fly the CWC. I also remember making a trip with Ed Carr out to see you in Ashland.

    Thanks for the video,
    Curtis

    It's good to hear from you. Boy those were the days. Jo and I were flying around 25 airshows a year and it was kind of a blur when I think about it. Todd Crist has the Krier CWC now and it is beautiful. He took it through a total restoration and we still see it every now and then. We still have the Krier Super Chipmunk and Great Lakes Special here at El Dorado, KS.

    Wow, old thread that still sees some action. I have been enjoying my CWC for almost a year now. It is actually a Canadian Homebuilt that is registered as an Ultralight by Canadian rules. While there are some restrictions, it also opens up the ability to make "improvements" to what Piper did a long time ago without very much red tape. O-200 power propped with a 7148 McCauley so it is more like 90hp until you dive enough to rev it up, chromoly everywhere, beefed up tail, cool paint job. And I was around when my friend built it in 1998. After flying a Zenair 701 on 65hp two stroke for 15 years, I think the CWC glides just fine. Could be what I am comparing it to. LOL

    Yes. It is fun to read the threads about what guys do to their CWC's . This one was pretty ready to go. (Smoke was removed before I got it. But semi-inverted oil was added. Inverted fuel got removed but is a pretty easy reinstall when I get the notion.)
    Anyways, it left Southern Ontario when the partners needed money for other pursuits and got sold to an aerobatic Champion. Then to one of his students who moved to Thunderbay where he discovered a float plane was more desireable. Lucky for me he sold the plane instead of adding floats. One of the first places I flew when I got it home was to the original builders strip for a visit. He now has a C85 powered J3 "ultralight" also built from scratch. I think I saw a tear in his eye. LOL
    The place is kind of a private hang out for mint condition vintage stuff.

    I don't know the exact details but my friends clip wing has wing tanks.
    The inner two bays get cut off when clipping the wings so clearly your fuel tanks will have to be moved over towards the wingtips if they currently sit in the first two inner bays.

    I will caution if you have a nice flying cub, there is more to it than cutting off the wings.

    I got some dual in Dick Boveys' 95hp CWC to prep for an initial test flight in my Murphy Renegade 4 aileron bipe. Turns out it was similar in roll rate and stall speed and excellent practice for the job. Made me wonder why I hadn't just found one and bought it.
    What's a go-around?
