   Risking some redundacy with there already being a post discussing breezy wings, I was hoping for some suggestions for making a stol performing breezy. I have more interest in flying low and slow (the slower the better) than top spped. Thanks for any suggestions or advice from any of you.

One option for better STOL performance would be the addition of vortex generators on the standard cub type wing an on the tail.  These would allow for greater angles of attack before a stall occured.

 

Another idea might be to look at building a set of wings off of a Zenith CH-750.  Hard to beat the STOL performance of the 701/750/801 planes.  I suggest the 750 becasue it has a higher gross weight than the 701 and there are no plans available for scratch building an 801.  I'm sure you could modify the breezy fuselage to accept the Zenith wings.

Thanks for the input Doug, I was really surprised that I haven't gotten more comments since the breezy doesn't have very good slow speed abilities. I want the open cockpit for the same reason I want to fly slow and I would think there has to be a lot of room for improvement. Thanks again.

Perhaps consider the leading edge slats for supercub wing.

Kurt -

I'm guessing you must have come across it already, but, just in case ... have you seen Yakima Aerosport's Super Breezy? They use the Dakota Cub extended, slotted wings, among other mods.

No affiliation (though my wife grew up in Yakima, which means my mother-in-law lives there! wink)

Hi Hal, I found a bunch of info on these guys in Yakima after some of the suggestions I got from the Yahoo breezy builder group. It is exactly what I am wanting. I have yet to talk to any of them on the phone though. Thanks for all of you and your comments.
