I have a lot of magnets out of other crashed planes. Hadn't even thought about going that route until now. Thanks!

She flies great but is a huge pain in the arse to put together. I see a few bolts and nuts replacing 4 pins very soon!

Congratulations on the good flights. It's always nicer if you don't bring it back home in a bag. It didn't take me too long to get rid of the jury struts. Mine seems to do okay with just the big struts, but the only stunts I do with it are positive g

I figured out a way to load mine in the trailer together. Itíll likely just live in there for the time being until winter weather screws flying for a while. And that is with my big B-17 in there. I don't fly it except special occasions so more room for several planes I do fly often. Club Fly-in was yesterday and everyone was eeewing and aaaahing this cub over our club presidents gas powered 118 inch Hanger 9 cub. Actually seems a little faster than his as well. 3 butter smooth landings in a row as well which is very unusual for me lol!!

Our club president has a friend that makes these wood models and gives the to veterans. I snagged the A-10 for my BiL thatís retired Air Force and veteran of the First Gulf war working then on the F4 Wild Weasels. Some of these have amazing detail.

In 1973 my heart was set on being in the backseat of wild weasels, but I failed physical due to an atrial septum defect.
I was angry then but it probably saved my life.
I like your trailer setup. We elected to go with the 250 ram van. All of our quarter scales fit in it assembled but it's a bit tighter than your trailer.
Heres a picture of be super cub loaded disassemble to make room for the B-17 and a few others.

My trailer is a cargo trailer I converted to a full on Toyhauler several years back for hauling our motorcycles and camping. It's doing a new duty now as it also has been used to haul an 8 ft plastic boat for fishing and camping lol. Even moved some furniture and building materials in it.
