    I have a very similar set up on my cub with the exception of engine size, I run a Bart built 0320 with duel p-mags and Vettermen Exhaust I get 90 MPH at 2500 RPM with a Catto 86X37 my empty weight is a little lighter also at 1250 Pounds, I would think you would see a little better speed than that with the bigger engine and 38 pitch, I also run 31" Bush wheels not 35" if that would make a difference I don't know, she is a nice looking Bird, that price makes me feel pretty good about mine!

    Do you remember the cruise speed? I do use the plane for business in the summer season
    and a 75 mph cruise will be pretty slow from farm to farm. Can't have it both ways

    Does a SQ2 even have a cruise speed?

    Most SQs are optimized for slow flight and short takeoffs so use flat props. What do you guys expect from that setup? If you want something different, make it happen.

    I guess I'll be the bad guy and play devils advocate. What is wrong with this airplane? Built in 2009 and it has less than 100 hours? WTFO? You have to fly 40 just to get it out of testing. That means in 7 years it has flown 60 hours? Not good for the engine or much of anything else. Why so few hours? Does it fly like a dog? Misaligned gear causing it to be squirrely on the ground? Heavy on the controls? Something is not right here...........might be a good explanation, but I would certainly be asking questions. An engine getting less than 10 hours a year.............. = red flag..........

    Dang Joe has quit buying smoke oil, so someone has to take up the slack. Heck the last time I flew with him he had traded his smoke system for a girl in the back.

    Is this similar to the Wildcat cub you are building? I was wondering what you thought about the price point, for all the work that goes into one of these, and the way this one is set up, the asking doesnt seem outrageous for this one.

    thx

    My plane is the latest version of Backcountry's SQ Cubs. Wayne Mackey is building his SQ-12s and Backcountry has removed the SQ name from their product line. The new kits are known as Revision 2 Supercubs. Mine has the SQ slatted wing and optional 9'+ Keller flaps but the new airframe is different. Bigger.

    If that SQ is nicely built? You couldn't build it for that price. Most SQs you see pictures of are $200K plus airplanes. I'd add Keller flaps to it so budget about $10K for that. It is a little heavy but double doors and double shooter windows explain part of that. Comfort features add weight and it looks pretty plush. It is a pretty plane and I bet it flies well. The lack of hours is probably a sign of a multi plane owner or perhaps a lost medical owner. After all, CC is selling it. Maybe it was traded for a Carbon Cub? No idea, that's just what comes to mind.

    Jim,
    This plane looks like the one which Turbine Cubs was building as a demonstrator at the time when I was building mine. It has most all of the options which were available. The wing has the same long flaps as mine which are superb for low speed lift. I would think that you could swap those 35" tires for a set of 29" without sacrificing utility for a bit more speed. I would also find out if that engine can accommodate a prop governor along with a Whirlwind constant speed prop. That should get the cruise speed above 100 mph. How far apart are your farms? Me, I would take this over a Carbon Cub any day.

    What's nice is it's still a supercub. The new sq2's are a lot longer and wider than a cub, kind of can't compare them. You would loose 40lbs going to 31's and another 20 going to a Catto prop, maybe a couple more lbs with the spinner. That's down to 1278. Ditch the baby Bushwheel and spring for a T3 and standard Scott probably loose 8 lbs. 1270. Not a light weight cub, but pretty good. You could ditch the heavy back seat and build a narrow light weight one. You would gain a few lbs when you added the smoke tank though.

    Bigger's what sealed the deal for me. BCSC fixed what kept me away from a Supercub.

    A longer airframe suits bigger motors. I wonder what the topic Cub's CG is?

    Jim, I put a set of slats on a Smith Cub (earlier version of Turbine Cubs of Wyoming). The slats slowed it down but I can't remember the numbers. It was a heavy airplane but flew very nice like it was lighter.

    Yes Douten I will need your your bank name and account ��##
    what is the maximum you can spare? In fact that is a good idea. If we get 10 guys to throw in $15K each we can all have fun. I have space in the hangar here at home. Russell should be good for 4 shares since he now winters in the Caymans and rubs lotion on his wife's butt side all day when he puts his fruity drink down

    I haven't worried about Andy his Citabria is a flying collection of Dads stuff. Lost my Whelen led and my trickairs
    Quit eyeballing that SL 40 son.

    I can alleviate some of the speculation on this aircraft. It was indeed was built as a demonstrator for Turbine Cubs of Wyoming in the spring of 2009, and then sold at the Oshkosh show later that year. The current owner didn't fly it much himself after getting it home due to age and health issues, but did have another local pilot fly short flights regularly to keep it exercised. It's been hangared here in eastern Washington for most of its life and doesn't look like it's ever been off-airport. The 0-375 does have a rear mounted governor plate and the panel does have an EI manifold pressure gauge so it could be easily converted to a CS prop.

    I haven't had a chance to go fly it myself yet due to the snow and ice fog we've had here in Yakima most of the last two months, but it did just go through an extensive CubCrafters annual inspection and is ready to go to a new home. Hopefully to someone who will fly it the way it was built to be flown.

    Now that is cool. A very clean well done brake design. Is that STD'ed? I see "Airframes" on the lever arm, I would like to know more. More photos or info would be appreciated. Thank you
