    This is what I was alluding to in my example of a modded wing and stock tail. And perhaps it doesn't take much mod at all, as it is pretty easy to make a cub fly with minimal elevator authority.

    I land my cub purely by the tactile feel of the elevator. And on several other aircraft it is also my barometer for lift off. I am also a 'throttle jockey'.

    You are not the only one 8)

    And come to think of it, IIRC wasn't Doug Keller (ksecub) working on a 180 with RSTOL 206 wings? Seems like that's been a few years ago, wonder how that went?

    Hi Mike. I *think* you meant flaps 20 vs flaps 40. If so, I'd say yep.... and THAT is why I am primarily a full flapper all the time. Because that extra drag allows me to carry a touch more power...

    Not sure if that was directed to anyone in particular, but I’ll bite. Although I’ll acknowledge up front that to a better cub guy, none of this might be worth while.
