    Question Cub Wing Build How-To?

    While most everything else on my Cub is pretty obvious I am still learning about the progression of a wing assembly (the wire torque, the attachment points of special joints at the flaps and ailerons, implications of sizes of fuel tanks, leading edge attachment, etc)

    I have the Northland plans and understand the components of a wing, but has anyone ever done an overview of a Cub wing build that covers the "why" certain steps are done at specific time?

    Wood or metal; either is fine (I fly a full wood wing). I am really just curious about the overall process and the small but important details that go into a wing. Anyone have any educational materials in this regards they could point me to?

    Thanks!

    If you happen to be in my part of the world I’m putting a wing together this week and you’re more than welcome to come to the shop and learn.

    Unfortunately I am not close enough Chuck; I am in Denver CO.

    At brief glance, those PDFs look very informative. Thanks!

    I bought that video before I built my 2+2 wing. Hands down, a great investment. Some of the tricks shown are likely common knowledge to Cub wing builders but, as they say, priceless to a first time wing builder. Worth the $$$.

    Several good threads on building wings on this website as well. Those Dakota Cub links are very helpful.
