Thanks Challenger. I had done a search on the Cub on Google and the most I could find was that the J-2 originally had an A-40 engine which made it considerably underpowerd. There was also a review by a pilot comparing the J-2 to the Super Cub which he spoke of the lack of safe power. I didn't see anything where I was searching about the airframe construction and every thing else was very vague regarding the differences between the 2 & 3 models. I was hoping to find if there was maybe and airfoil change, change in size of control surfaces, etc. That is why I asked hoping that someone who was familiar with the Cubs could shed some light. Guess I learned a little more about the Cubs also and when the clipped wing version began its experimental stages. Thanks again!
