Super Cub Strut Mod

Just trying to find out how everyone mods the wing struts to allow easy transport of the Super Cub. I have seen the Velcro mod but am looking for something a little more secure. I have heard of people using Piano Wire but not to sure on how to do that. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I would add a CF rod to the wing and get rid of the struts... 6 rubber bands and the wing isnt going anywhere.

Come back to that thread for more info. Don't let the size of it scare you. Look at the index for info, then the last few pages to see what is going on, and then jump in. Lot's of helpful folks there.

Reefkpr, The velcro does hold, I have had velcro holding mine on all year and it has never come undone on me.
