History of the Super Cub

Why am I building a PA-18 Super Cub?  The short answer - because I can!  The long answer - I always loved the Super Cub and wanted to own one since I started flying at age 15. 

Fast foward 23 years later and I am at the point in my life where I can own a plane. The problem is, what once was a $30-50k airplane is now a $150k airplane.  Wow! How can a plane cost more than a house? I'll leave this argument for later but I will say that greedy parachute lawyers are mostly to blame.  So being the bargain hunter I am, I want to spend a whole lot less.  I prefer to have something new and not 50 years old. I love a challenging project and like to build. I've built a plethora of radio control airplanes from scratch. So.... here I am - building an experimental Super Cub.
