Thanks Mase,
A new listing I hadn’t caught. It’ll be #20 in my spreadsheet.

Not a Cub, but an 8KCAB 150 HP, for Cub price range.

Hi Mase,
Thanks . . . but . . . well there are Champ guys n there are Cub guys. Maybe if they’d painted the champ yellow with a black lightning stripe? Man, that’d piss off both camps<grin>.

I guess it’s guys like me that keep driving the price up on Cubs. Likely pay a $10,000 premium for Cub vs Champ.

Let’s see:
* The Champ cost less.
* Easier to get in & out of.
* Roomier, more comfortable cabin.
* Solo from front seat.

Dunno, must be the Cubs’ exposed engine cylinders, Dutch doors and yellow paint<g>

Regards,
Tom Charlton

>>> must be the Cubs’ exposed engine cylinders, Dutch doors and yellow paint<g><<<

Also, propping a Champ, you are a long way from the cockpit, a Cub, prop from behind, you are almost in the cockpit.

If I owned one today I would have a tow hitch or carry a short cable with a hook to clip it to a tie down. Release after idle...

nothing clever to say right now...

Hi Jeff,
Yup, and with good impulse mags firing at TDC, less likely for backfire removing the first joint of your fingertips and usually only takes a gentle flip past compression for commencement.

Concur.
And furthermore . . . I’ve heard that some larger FBOs get a bit wonkie, these days, seeing someone hand propping. But I get that. Precautions need to be taken. Dam things will go fly’n by their ownself.

Tom Charlton

Ah, but Cubs should be based at little grass strips with a coffee maker, a "liar's table" and a bench to sit on and discuss takeoffs and landings!

Don't forget the scarred, one-eyed airport cat, usually named "Prop".
