    Adam, put your video up. That one's pretty impressive. Not many guys will do that with their planes.

    Here's Adam. This looks pretty benign because of the suspension!

    I like that clip. It illustrates why gear bolts get bent. The deflection and deformation of the tires at takeoff speed is impressive.

    Looked like aluminum or maybe Lexan in a somewhat airfoil shape around the shocks, hard to see, a guess.

    Wow. Look at how much those wheels are working. That is a better demonstration than most of the promo videos I've seen.

    I don’t have anything covering mine. I keep them lubed up with LPS2 especially the right one as the exhaust gets on it the most.

    That video shows a lot. People often don't realize that a cub with a working load even with some wind takes a while to get into the air. The drag from the ground roll and rough ground also slows the plane down. The beating the gear/shock/tire absorb is very impressive and keeping the tire in contact with the ground is key when it comes to control. I think Adam was cheating with a back seater lighter than most however. Great video.

    Denny it was uphill with a 20kt quartering headwind or take the downhill. First load I took the downhill and it was okay but then the wind picked up. I’m glad people can see a real world example of what a loaded cub looks like. Folks ask me all the time it takes to get off the ground I say 120’ empty on pavement and 600-800’ with a full load of moose in the nasty stuff. Plan accordingly. Also you’re just jealous my hunting partner is cuter than yours! She is a crack shot too.
