It is a wonderful looking Cub in the air and will teach you to use the rudder . Slip slides and stall turns come naturally to it and flatspins are an adrenaline rush as it takes about three revolutions to come out after the controls are released .
Hi 4stroker. Thanks for the heads up on the stalling. I've flown many cubs, but just now decided to build this one. Check my blog out to see the other planes I fly. Giant Scale all the way baby. Well, except for this one, and a few others, but I do have the ability to fly these.

When you say "washout" is that the same thing as Dihedral?
