I finally test flew my Cub yesterday after finishing a complete groundup restoration
that I did myself (first time). I last flew it in Oct '01 and began restoration in Jan '02.
Even though it took me over five years, I'm glad I did the work myself, the experience
was invaluable.

The flight itself was great. The Cub flew well with the only problem a slight tendency
to roll to the right. I know I have to adjust the wing struts to correct this. Does anyone
have any advice on how many turns on the strut forks are needed to produce a noticeable
effect? I'm guessing that I'd want to raise one wing by the same amount that I drop the
other wing in order to maintain the dihedral.
