    Default Rear Seat Solo

    Does the Top Cub have a static margin that can handle the aft CG of a pilot wanting to solo from the rear seat? Or is the aircraft unstable when loaded with a pilot in the rear seat?

    I've never run the numbers but I'm sure that it would still be in CG. However, you would not be able to reach any of the controls that are on the instrument panel. Mags, mixture, carb heat, fuel selector etc would all be out of reach.
