I always wanted to fly an ILS approach at 45kts. If I throw down 55 large I can get my opportunity. Just remember, just like an ugly woman somebody loves this thing.

Better yet, wait for a strong wing and fly the ILS going backwards and going up. Do you fly towards the needle or away?

Always toward the needle, even if inverted (except b.c's). CB

I flew backwards from Will Rogers Airport, west of Oklahoma City, to Tinker AFB, several miles to the east of the city, one night while giving instrument instruction in a Beech Sport. Our progress to OKC was so slow that I figured we could back up, and the student agreed to try it. Beautiful view to see the lights of the city unfold below us, as we went backwards across the ground. The Tinker controller couldn't figure out why our groundspeed was so slow when we "turned around" down wind to go back to Tinker. Never told him.

I would give 5 bucks to just see all the paperwork that was done to get the ton of field approvals needed to create such a beast. The increase in gross weight must be hidden in one of the many dozen pages. Notice on the left there is also a wing tank. More weight. However that all said W&B was not a real problem as this Cub is approved and plackarded for "Remote Control Operations Only"
"Pilot and Crew must be removed before flight"

Hummm..... I guess he has plenty to throw over board to lighten the ship! Some folks just have to feel important!

Damn, 2 L4's on Barnstormers, not a one under 50K, I'm sittin on a gold mine! Wonder if he'd let me borrow that grasshopper, I don't have my instrument rating yet. Here I am crying about a 337 for carb heat, he must be in good with the FSDO!
