    Time in a wag aero super sport?

    Anyone got time in a wag aero super sport, short wings (32í) and 125hp?

    Been offered one. Wonder if itís enough wing. Has flaps, wood spar/ribs.

    3' more wing than a Clipper or Pacer. I flew my 115 hp Clipper for years, then the Pacer and finally a Super Cub. It should preform well, not like a Cub but better than your truck.

    Sounds fun. The only Shortwing I’ve flown was a fairly light Colt, I think that was the sweetest flying Piper I’ve been in. I’ve got an experimental idea rolling around in my head, essentially a non-electric lightweight PA-18-95 with Vagabond wings. All the familiarity of a Super Cub with a light feel and crisp roll rate.

    Interesting, I’d like to build something along those lines but much lighter/simple. Something to fly with some earplugs after a long day. I need to add another working plane first, then a 150 Super Cub, then this toy. Just a pipe dream at this point...

    Few years ago, Sport Aviation magazine had an article about a homebuilder who built basically a SC with Pacer wings.
    Can't recall the detail but think he had a 235 in it?
    I think that magazine is laying around my hangar, I'll look for it later today.

    The builder of Pops Dory's orange cub Kenny Johnson built a cub with pacer wings. It was featured in the dec. '09 issue of Sport Aviation. It was Kenny's first cub and has an O-235. If I remember it was around 850 empty wt. with full electrical. Kenny builds them light with no frills.

    Here is the cub I mentioned. This was taken at Lee Bottom probably about 2007Click image for larger version.

ID:	41949Kenny showed me his folder of receipts he kept for building this cub. He is a true scratch builder and other than the tri pacer wings, which he rebuilt the cost was 21K for the completed airplane. Kenny likes to dig for those good deals on parts and he's done it three times on cubs.

    Finding the article - A person can search EAA Sport Aviation magazine on-line for archived articles. A person needs to be an EAA member, and here's how to search:

    1. go EAA.org
    2. on the blue banner at the top of the home page, click on "News & Publications"; a pull down menu will appear
    3. click on "EAA Magazines"
    4. click on the "EAA Sport Aviation" text under one of the five photos
    5. scroll down, and click on "Sport Aviation Archives"
    6. here's where you need to be a member. Scroll down and click on "Search for Archives"
    7. enter your EAA username and password - a person may need to update their password if they haven't logged on in a while
    8. enter appropriate information in the search fields
    for example: "Kenny Johnson" in the "phrase" field
    check the "Article Text" button only in the the "Contained In" section
    select a date range, for example 2008 to 2010
    9. hit the "Submit" button
    10. For me, the article popped right up
    11. disclaimer - I may have missed something in the writing of this tip, but I think I captured everything.

    I took screen shots of the each page of the article, however I'm not sure that it'll be legible if I were to paste it into here.

    I hope this helps.

    I note the guy who is advertising on Barnstormers above is willing to trade for a Citabria? That should be a hint.

    I own a Decathlon and fly a 160 Citabria, along with daily Cub flights. The Citabria is currently one of the best deals in aviation, but it is not a Cub. Getting out of a Cub and into a Citabria is a step down unless you are going cross country - and then the Mooney is the best buy!

    Could be Acro also. I've got a good friend that's like that....while waiting for his 18-125 to get a 150 mounted he bought a Decathlon. Now the SC sits while he flys everywhere upside down, some people are goofy that way. I can't honestly say if the Cub has even been off the ground since the new motor's been hung, which was 6 months ago.

    It can be nice to have the option of both high wing and low wing in the same plane.

    Peter,
    I hope it is something that works for you. I am still in the hunt and hope we can find something soon. I am still looking for a PA-18-95 or something like it. Chip D.

    Chip, there's a PA-18-125 in Maine that is closer to your price range than mine. Larry Greiner flew it and said it was very well balanced. You might take a look.

    Or just bite the bullet and buy Bill Brine's sweet red Sport Cub.
