    I'm in the process of checking out the people that bought my old Cub. They have flown nothing
    but PA-28s. I am constantly having to point to the ball to prove that the plane is not
    coordinated. I don'...

    When I rebuilt my Cub, I just entered (as weighed) in the 'weight' and 'arm' columns for the
