  1. Great Picture!
    I have quite a few hours in a Clipped Wing Cub with an 85hp Continental here in California.

    May the wind be at your tail, Josh

  2. Hi. Josh.
    Thanks for your reply and comments.Most of my hours are on a B121 series 2.(BT12), I have never seen a clipped wing cub, I understand that about 80 inches are cut off the wings,is that correct, how does it handle after such a severe operation?

  3. As I recall, there was 36″ cut from each wing for a total of 72″. The aircraft handled very well, crisp in roll and had an increased rate of descent with power off as would be expected.

    All in all very fun to fly!

    May the wind be at your tail, Josh

  4. Hi Josh, good to hear from you again, The crispness sounds great, I would love to fly a clipped wing Cub, maybe one day. Terry
