    Interesting Add-ons

    Simple ones for me. My plane has an "inactive" pedal. When the pilot pushes forward on a rudder pedal the opposite pedal barley even moves. Another thing I thought was neat but can't remember where I seen it, was a built in camera mount molded into the verticle stab. Nothing earth shattering...

    Nice Plane! I have always loved Cubs. Living in Minnesota I am hoping in a couple years to purchase a Cub and put it on floats. I love this site because of all the years of experience a person can find here. I am only 39 and starting what should be a fairly easy restore of my grandfathers...

    Wing cradles

    We used to pull tandem trailers quit often for work. I don't think I will have a space issues on the trailer. The wings are only about 10' 6" long each. I plan on setting 2 wings on each side of the fuse ahead of the stabilator. Th only thing I might have to deal with is clearing the landing...

    Wing cradles

The other thing to note is my plane is side by side seating making it a little wider and a trike landing gear. The gear is over 82" wide, 82" is about the width of an average...
