Hi Alles!


I found YouTube videos on how to fly like a bush pilot. They come in with about a 12° angle of attack with a high power setting, and they seem to drop right out of the sky. I can't do it in the J-3C Cub but am wondering if the Maule would do it, or if I could change the settings for the Cub so it would do that but fly regularly in other phases of flight. Links to the videos below. Thoughts?

'Glichy' controls or switches and don't want to pay for new ones? Read on... You can bring a controller back to life by exercising it through it's full range of motion or from maximum to minimum and back again 50 times. I had a Logitech joystick that gave left rudder without touching it but turning it 50X fixed it.

The Cub can't do it because it doesn't have flaps, but the Super Cub does:


It's the weapon of choice for real bush pilots to this day - they're making a carbon fibre version with a glass cockpit now: http://cubcrafters.com/carboncub/ss
