The clip wing Cub was an entry level aerobatic aircraft. To make it work would require far more power than I had. I should think that to be realistic it should perform with about 80W/lb. That's considering you do not want it to perform like an Extra! (which it certainly did not)

I think I was operating with about 60W/lb and while it would loop (sorta) rolls were a bit sluggish. Clipping the wing would help, but IMHO, if you're looking for Cub type flight, leave it as a full wing. If you're looking for some aerobatics, look at the Citabria/Decathlon. Tex

BTW, I flew my DinaFlite Super Decathlon on E-power. AF60 with 2:1 and 36 cells. It did alright, but turnaround time was too much for me as a sport plane. T.
