    I’m pretty sure that the upper crossbar is the only thing that keeps the sides from folding in or out. I wouldn’t mess with the geometry of such a critical structure.

    Hey Bill,

    How does your airplane perform fully loaded to 2,300 lbs. in real world conditions? Is it mushy, more squirrelly, or heavy on the controls?

    Have you noticed a sweet spot for CG and...

    While we are on the topic, why don’t we see more experimental builders metallize their Cub wings?

    If you want a stronger and/or smoother wing surface, why don’t you just metallize the wings?

    ...not that I recommend doing that.

    Or maybe buy a Cessna?

    Based on the photo, I’m not sure that I would have reported the airplanes to have “landed” after the mid-air collision.

    I know everyone wants to improve performance while also saving money, but sometimes reinventing the wheel comes at too great a cost.

    A PA12 is so much more attractive than an 18, don’t you think?

    It’s like comparing women: 12s have more meat on their bones, whereas 18s appear skinny and scrawny.

    Try putting the gear from the other side on upside down to see if the problem is the suspected misaligned gear leg or the fuselage itself.
