Super Cub Rudder drawing & Float details

Hi all,

After a long delay I'm finally getting started on my 100" H9 Super Cub / AST Super Cub conversion (repaint). I was wondering if anyone has or could recommend an accurate drawing of the Super Cubs rudder and elevators? Sorry, found them! This is one heck of a collection of Super Cub drawings if anyone's looking for 'details'! - http://www.supercubproject.com/drawings/

Also several years ago I had the opportunity to 'hang out' at lake Hood for two days before and after a overseas trip for work (DC-8 flight mech) and just take pics. Here are some float details that I hope someone may find useful.

Robin

Very nice. Looks like maybe you fly at home.
Do you have any video from that onboard camera?

I do have an 800' field at my house, makes it nice not to have to travel to fly.
here are a couple of videos I've taken.
Fall Foliage (2 min 18 sec)

Super Cub evening flight (4 min 22 sec)

Nice vids. In the second vid, was that just harmonics that kicked in to make it blurry? Or, did something come loose? Seemed like it came in like a switch turned on.
Anyway, you should dig yourself a shallow water runway next to the other one. You could fly full size off of 800'. Maybe you do.

GoPro mount

I made a wood plate to fit in place of the top window/hatch and attached my Gopro up there. I do have some video that I will try to post.

My camera is mounted to the plexiglass skylite and the vibration is at a certain rpm, also the plexiglass is cracked, I've removed the plastic and am mounting a piece of 1/16 plywood on the frame for a camera mount, I want to have one inside also so that I can video there also
