Default Rv Supercub

I have an 8 and own 50% of a 10. Both great planes. Sold my 9a , couldn’t keep em all. I would love to see a Van’s super cub. Wondering if they could make the jump to true super cub thinking. I just want a new super cub bush plane that has close to super cub performance. All metal would be great......I’ve been to Randy’s shop twice to look at his s7. Looks good, just can’t pull out my wallet. I think if the design was for a full sized s/cub, not a compromise,I would be in.

I can’t imagine ever getting rid of my 185. Full fuel (74 gal), four 200 lb people and 150 lbs of bags is still below gross and w/in CG. Pretty incredible machines.

I can’t wait to finish my RV-8, but the 185 is our family truckster.

Since you mentioned the 170 specifically as qualifying as a bush plane, I answered the poll “yes”. But, even though I regularly operate on grass and I have been to Johnson Creek, my 170 with its stock 145hp and 6.00-6 tires isn’t really set up for what I think of as real bush flying.

Please make sure it has a traditional aircraft engine. (0-360 like). And it must compete with the Carbon Cub.

Default *Yes*

My first (and "always") airplane is my 2006 RV8--hard to imagine NOT having such a fantastic ride at my disposal. The (*s) are because I don't actually own my 2nd project (RANS S7S) anymore...but my son DOES and I still do the lion's share of the maintenance, so I consider it my 2nd airplane!
After I finish my current project (SPA Panther--would've loved building an RV3, but my keister, not to mention the rest of my carcass, just won't allow it!), I hope that Van's has a tandem or 4-seat bush plane to allow a yes vote without the asterisk. If not, maybe Randy will have an all metal tandem or 4-seater by then.
