Super Cub Build

After a whole load of work around the house this summer I’m finally getting a chance to build my next RC plane, a 52” Super Cub short kit by Pat Tritle.

I started out this morning laminating the tail outline and wing surfaces. This is the first time I’ve attempted laminations like this and I was suprised at how easily things went. I followed the build tips on Pat’s site and as advertised, piece of cake. A little less coffee for breakfast next time might be helpful to reduce jitter.

The horizontal and vertical stabilizers went together quickly and are ready to go. Now its on to wings tonight.
