Hi All, new guy here getting ready to begin construction of a Wag Aero Sport Trainer.

Just a few stupid questions that I'm sure have been covered a thousand times before so please bare with me.

First, I understand that the original Cubs used a jackscrew type of trim system and the Wag Aero Sport Trainer uses a trim tab. I'm trying to decide which type to utilize but I don't have enough info to make an informed decision. Any thoughts as to the pro's/con's of each type?

Second, Wag offers two sizes of axles (1 1/4" & 1 1/2"). What's the difference. I hope to use 800x4 wheels but I understand that these are sorta hard to come by.

Third, where in the heck can a guy find a C-85/90 or O-200?

Fourth and final question, Wag offers several different wing kits. Basically, I need to decide between building a wood wing or an aluminum one. Again, pro's/con's?

Ok, that's about all the stupid questions I can post for now.


ps, anybody in the St. Louis area have a cub I can sneak a peek at?
