    I feel your explanation is correct. The first thing I would do is to set the static RPM as stated and also check the carbs and jetting.

    Could it be an Airdale Backcountry?

    I did most of my primary flight training in a Super Cub with heal brakes. They work ok but I am not a fan of them.  I prefer toe brakes because they are easier to use.

    First Flight Avid Flyer A
    Hi guys,
    I finally flew my Avid Flyer A for the first time today after owning it for 2 years. After alot of work and alot of research my dream has come true. I would like to thank everyone on the forum for taking the time to give your input with your own perspective regarding these airplanes.
    While everyone may fly them a little different, one can mold his own techniques from all the information shared.
    They are incredible machines that are very challenging and will greatly develop ones flying skills. The CC Sport Cub I just got my BFR done in seems so tame now.
    The wealth of information available here is invaluable. Thanks to all who have uploaded  documents, because buying an airplane and getting zero supporting documentation makes maintenance a challenge...
    The plane flew great. I trimmed with the flapperon setting. Hands off! For a couple seconds anyway...haha
    Tried a wheel landing first. With the extra speed and power that was interesting. It took some time to get it slowed down.
    Tried a full stall next and that worked better because of the slower speeds. I'm still crossing the threshold at 60mph and it wants to float for quite a while. I may come in a little slower next time.
    15 TOs and landings so far...
    It was a great day at a classic grass strip airport...Stanton, Mn.
    I love grass!
