I have been flying a friends Super Cub. He was having the same problems as yourself. However I have been flying in the wind with no problems so it is not the plane. I think you just need more experience. I agree with the dedStik about getting another SC and becoming proficient with it.

Going on to a plane with ailerons will not correct your inability to bring the plane back from downwind.

Get good with the SC and then move on the the T-28.
