    Hello everyone my name is Randy, I just recently joined. I am interested in purchasing a Smith Cub kit from an individual I work with. He purchased it last year and barely got started before loosing interest. He has offered it to me at a fair price. I have a lot of tube & fabric experience as I have rebuilt several cubs and 12's in the past. I would welcome any input from members who have built and fly the Smith Cub. I have visted their web site and spent quite a while looking at the project and am impressed with their workmanship.

    Thanks, Randy

    Smith Cub

    Randy, Welcome to the SuperCub.org site. You will make life long friends through this site and camp and travel with several of us. You could not have found a better site for information. I know several people on here that have either built a Smith Cub or still working on one. you picked a good one and will love flying it. Look forward to meeting you someday.

    Randy....

    Two things....

    1. The search here will be your friend...

    2. You need to find out if your smith cub tail is welded on correctly. I know this was a manufacturing problem on the early kits and needs to be corrected so your tail has the proper AOA in reference to the wing.

    You can start with this link to help find info on it:

    New Member Activation?

    Does anyone know the current waiting time for activation of member status? I joined on Sunday 2-14-10. I asked in an email yesterday but no reply yet. I understand most orgs are run by volunteers, I just wanted to know what to expect. Thank you all.
