    Plans for wood wings?

    Does anyone build experimental category cubs with wood wings?
    Are plans for wood wings available?
    Thanks!

    Any of the Wag Aero plans show wood wings. I’m building a 2+2 with wood wings right now.

    I’m building aluminum wings for my SC clone right now. I have a box of steel hardware for wood wings if you are interested.

    I'm still interested. My original plan was to fly over there and look at your goodies. These days, though, I can rarely get more than 3 hours away from home.

    Great! When I looked at their website I don't see that stated anywhere. I will give them a call.

    The plans specify a wood wing, but I don't think they stock wood wing materials anymore. I ended up getting spruce spars from Aircraft Spruce after a long wait.

    Wag no longer carries lift strut fittings for wood, either. They will likely try to talk you into aluminum wings.

    I have a set of wood wings for my 2+2. I modified the wings to use stock Super Cub hardware for flaps, and changed the tank bay to use a shear plate rather than the cross brace through the tank. I also added the stock wood wing tip bow; I like the original look. I did drawings with measurements in CAD for the wing layout, flaps and ailerons (all wood). Essentially, I have a Super Cub wood wing. Most everything is on my website, marty2plus2.com My wings are ready to cover, should be starting the covering in the next month or so.

    Marty,
    Thanks for this pic and for the link to your builder's log website. I've just started looking through it. This will be very helpful in numerous ways.
    I love the frank discussion of the challenges you've faced, and the solutions you've devised.
    You do nice work!
    Mike
