This has probably been covered a jillion times here but... I thought I'd ask anyhoo.
What does/should a 1st time time Cub buyer be looking for? Located in SE Washington. (RLD)(S40)
It will probably not be used in the winter or at least very little. Summer is a guessimate just because of HEAT.
Used under Sport Pilot for lolly-gaggin around the country.
Doesn't need to be a showstopper.
Would be nice to have some upgrades like sealed struts, disc brakes etc etc.
Handheld radio.
I know this ? will probably evoke a lot of what about this or that but I'm just trying to get a basic idea of what to look for.
Something like this would have been great.. but to late for me... :(
