    Our Cub has reverse so we can hand prop it in reverse heeled in to shore and take your time getting in and switch to forward. When your by yourself way up north with a bad starter thats a pretty handy feature.

    No mixture control on the Aeronca Chief but fuel was always off for start. Tail secured unless someone competent on brakes, fuel off, and hat off!
