    Guys, I've been away lending air support to the Iron Dog snowmachine race. I got back yesterday. a point of interest: through Windy Pass, I heard a Cub who can go 100MPH say his GPS was indicating a 2MPH groundspeed. We got trashed, I saw as low as 22 GS, but no less, and never got turned completely upside down, so it was good.

    No new numbers, boys, but I can say she's a lot of fun on floats, and that's saying alot from a guy who gets 'bored' on floats.

    Wayne, has the 9foot flapped-wing flown yet? anything else you'd like to say about it? Thanks. DAVE

    9'

    Dave,
    As of yet I don't think any are in the air. But as far as the flap goes
    it is only 12" longer than what I have on my plane. And it also has the
    17" cord on flaps and ailerons like mine. The wing is a 17' panel so the
    ailerons are the same size as mine. This is the wing used on the SQ2
    kit witch is a modified 12 wing. All the cables are inside out of the weather. The plane I'm building now has 10' flaps and 7' ailerons.
    With the 17" cord I still have more useful control area than a stock cub
    so aileron roll should be fine. there are also roll spoilers behind the slat.
    The flaps have 4 hangers with bell cranks on two to stop any twisting
    problems. Wayne

    Wayne,
    are you still going to droop the ailerons with the 10' flap? You had mentioned that the aileron authority wasn't always top notch in a cross wind. Have you done anything different in regards to the aileron droop?
    Thanks,
    Rhett

    Rhett,
    The droop will not be used on this wing. Have not given up on the droop
    but that is another project on new wing. wayne

    This airplane is now for sale, parked currently on the A row at Lake Hood Strip. A row is closest to the road. The plane is in the middle of the row and has typical for sale markings..
