Super Cub with 9"x60" Apprentice wing(w/ailerons).

Hi
Just wondering is anyone has tried using the 9"x60" Apprentice wing(w/ailerons) on a Super cub lp. If so how does it fly ?
I was wanting to know this as this would make it much easier to add ailerons to my supercub, plus the Apprentice wing is made with ailerons therefore no need to remove the dehedral.

Thanks

The bad news...Stock S.C. wing=5 ozs.
Apprentice wing=11 ozs.
NET weight gain=6ozs
------------------------------------------
The GOOD news...Stock wing, 329 Sq.inches of lift.
The Apprentice wing,540 Sq. inches of lift.
I'll trade 6 ozs. Wt.gain for additional 200 sq. inches lift any day ...RTR

I'm also looking to add ailerons to my SC LP. This looks like a fast and easy way to do it.

How does it fly compared to the stock wing with ailerons? Do you still use rubber bands to attach the wings? It doesn't seem that way in the picture.

Flies great, a lot more lift.You'll have to cut 2" off the trailing end of the wing so it will sit on existing cradle(at Fuse.).And it's secured w/ (4) #64 rubber bands,just like stock.

Looks like a great wing to add flaps to, you would be floating in place with a slight breeze!
