The cub is an amazing plane. I forgot what the stall speed is but I believe it is somewhere around 30 knots. I have heard of pilots setting them down in tree tops after losing an engine and walking away from the accident. :)

Very nice landing. Very cool.

LOL @ Autorotation
At least I have a nice glide ratio.
;)
Hehe, I can glide straight down, and have too! I'll have you know it's nowhere near as terrifying as it's made out to be. It even becomes fun after a few hundred of them. :wink:

The only thing that truly scares the s**t out of me in a helicopter is settling with power. Even when you do it at altitude (to practice recovery) it's an aggressive, unpredictable pucker moment. At least in an R22 it is.
