    Supercub wings on J3

    Hi, does anyone know if there is an STC or other mod to put supercub wings onto a J3 and if so does it give an increased gross weight?

    Asking for a friend. 😀

    Covered gear legs

    Is there anything against flying a Cub/Supercub with one gear leg covered and one not? Would be temporary pending fabric replacement.
