    Just look at the shape of the blades. A discussion of the aerodynamics involved would take a book. Let's just say it is obvious that a lot of educated thought went into this design. The "Borer"...

    Since you are looking for a "beater" Cub, a "full" overhaul on this one may be overkill and $$$$$. Keep your investment low. Just fix what needs fixing and go flying. A Full overhaul would appear to...

    I would say that with all that cutting and fitting to end up with that small amount of remainder, you did very well. You could likely get the pieces to finish that truss out of the remainder.

    While drag is always an important issue, it doesn't seem to be as important on airplanes which cruise less than about 105 mph. There seems to be a drag wall which appears in the 105 - 115 mph range....

    Is there only going to be a door on the left side? I don't see the four short tubes which make up the truss on the right side. There has to be a three leg (triangle) bay to have any strength. There...

    Any method of launching a float plane other than taking off in the water carries a lot of luck and risk. You win some and you lose some. Been there done that, both. A bumpy-ish strip of any length...

    There's a name from the past. I met George 40 years ago. A very clever fellow. He is one who knew how to wrap the FAA around his little finger.
