So do we want a var pitched prop choice on the Super Cub 95 and/or 150 or do we need a 125 hp variant?

Trying to do a bit of reality check on this.
Apparently there are modifications for the big engines https://www.propilotsinc.com/pa-18-12-propeller-conversion/, but not for 95hp.

Difficult to judge with so many modified cubs around.
Maybe it makes sense to have a simple fixed prop 95 on wheels in the package, as it would make a good transition between the 1947 version and the ones on steroids.

Well, we already have a fixed prop 95. What I ended up doing was adding the option for a VP prop for both the 95 and 150 Super Cub. They both can be changed from 15 to 30.
The fixed props are set to...
65hp = 15
95hp = 19
150hp = 20
I'll push it later tonight.

Pushed some updates to FGADDON (SVN) and Git repository.

VP Prop 15 - 30, wow does that add flexibility.
Fixed props set to...
65hp = 15
95hp = 19
150hp = 20

Added a few more tutorials. These were copied from c172p and modified to the Cub and Super Cub.

it-stec55x now has a custom EIS, all that is left to do is the fuel management tie-in.

The Super Cub is coming along nicely. It is such a versatile aircraft with all the bells and whistles!

If you haven't visited this site yet, there is a lot of reliable information especially in the FAA certificates on this page.

I have never seen an airplane with a ground adjustable pitch in FG. Will a Cub model be the first? :)
