    Totally different strut so none of that would be the same for your bird.

    Off the topic of the really nice looking new Super Cub, but Roger hand-made strut fairings for my plane when he built it. Sounded pretty straight forward when he explained the process to me - you could probably do it easy.

    Saturday I had the privilege of flying the FX-3. Mark Keneston from Cub Crafters hosted the event at the Saratoga Airport in Upstate NY. I was impressed with the performance of the airplane! It jumped off the ground and kept climbing at 50mph. When level in the pattern, while throttled back, it had no problem holding 110mph. The placement of the throttle and prop control are positioned just right, and felt very comfortable. On final with full flaps extended, it handled like all the other carbon cubs except it took little control input and felt vary balanced. The Carbon Cub FX-3 is a great airplane!

    Got to fly the CC FX-3* Dec 2nd at 5B2 (Saratoga, NY) with Mark Keneston from CubCrafters. Very impressive performance. About 100 foot ground roll and pitch to 50deg climb to pattern alt. Nicely balanced and very responsive controls at slow speed. Liked the electric trim. Smooth breaking and ground maneuvering on 29" ABWs. A great airplane...

    What did the FX3 have for seats/seat cushions? I thought they were excellent

    So I heard you rolled it out the door and

    "How much are we betting that mine leaves the factory on 35's under a 1000lbs??"

    So did it?

    Last I heard it did. Something like 980. Not sure the weight diff but I’d take the FX wings over the SS wings, even with the weight penalty. Nobody “underloads” their cub.

    363EX that we flew Peter was about 1180#. Big husky c/s prop and cc363 had you thinking you were in a light sport.

    Actually, the answer you quoted was in response to Kevin’s airplane finishing under 1000 lbs.
