    I've never seen a Cub built in a linear fashion. Usually there are 4 or 5 separate things being built and you jump back and forth as time and parts allow. Squirrel!

    The reason I found those is because I want to buy some screws to test lateral and...

    My 90* flange is on the side panels. It works fine for keeping dirt above the floor but the flange covers the perimeter screws in the floor boards and that makes removing the floor a little tricky. A...

    Every wing cover I've had grows and shrinks on different days. Some days I can't reach the wing roots and other days I have 6" of extra cover and have to fold them back over themselves at the wing...

    I figured somebody would start making pre-made harnesses. If I knew of such a service when I bought mine I probably would have bought it. Now that Mike's all practiced up it would be a different...

    Another decision will be how to manage power to all the components. I had a discussion with a Garmin engineer and took his advice to use individual breakers for each powered box. Some guys use...

    I use my bags for more than survival. They stuff nicely in the compression sack they come in.

    Superflight System VII. Very impressed. And my plane? Stits/Aerothane. No regrets!

    Bottom line? They all work. Use the process you can do best. It'll be what people see.
