    I promise not to bore you with any off the shelf kits, although at least one will get put together during this build.
    At 1/6 scale I can keep it in the same footprint as the Ryan for transport.
    Spent 4 hours in one today and will get another 4 tomorrow as PIC from right seat of course.

        So I decided to keep this first version electric, but if I can get a sponsor there is room to do a 1/4 scale and install this:

ID:	196675 A fuselage takes shape. Full size is semi-monocoque. Thinking ahead to make wings detachable at the main gear ribs. Keels May get interesting.

                I may have missed it, what plane is this exactly? Are you modeling it from scratch using a full size reference?

                More details please...

                  I believe it's a Piper M600. I was a fan of the Meridian (M500) which is similar except a different wing and other minor things. Of course you'd know better, F22trainer! Please tell us more about your build! Especially that turboprop option....

                    Alpha is correct on all counts. Still working on a liaison with my parent company, but as of right now I am using the published 3 view drawings and photos from my visit to the factory. Google the Piper M-500 and 600. The M-350 is a nearly identical airframe but is piston powered by a TIO-540 Lycoming, that maintains 350 HP up to 20,000’ and is pressurized.

                    I am building an electric version M-600 at 1/6 scale. The turbo prop from King Tech would need a 1/4 scale airframe. Since there are no plans I am drawing my own and figured I would start smaller. Also need a sponsor for that turbine and hope to get Piper to back that build. An electric model fits within my budget.

                      Well last night my aging PowerBook just threw in the towel... got a warning memory was full, closed a few applications and saved my file a did a restart.

                      Won’t boot up now.
                      Going through some common fixes, but gotta go to work now.

                        Anyone know a fix - PowerBook G4. Tried some of the UToob fixes, but no luck yet.

                          The worst possible issue is likely to be what happened. Failure of the boot track on the HD.

                          Stuck in the middle of loading the OS and, just keeps trying to read the drive?

                          Sometimes you can pull the data from the drive even if it can't boot the machine, by plugging it as an external to a different machine. (they make adapters to do this as a USB external drive)
                          Sometimes its just toast.
                          FF gliders and rubber power since 1966, CL 1970-1990, RC since 1975.

                          current planes from 1/2 oz to 22 lbs

                            Sounds about right for my world...FML
                            I was far enough along it would be a pain to start over but not frustrating as I could probably do it again faster and a bit more accurate. So now I am planning to start over, but I could pull the drive and maybe read it on my G4 desktop Powermac dual boot machine...I have 2 of them. But I have a feeling I may lose them soon too, and rightly so as they are almost 20 years old. Hard to believe.
                            I have a new iMac I got for the GF, and could run a subscription to Adobe Illustrator which would be cheaper than buying a new MacBook. That might trigger a few dirty looks if I spend a lot of time on that machine, which would happen. Besides her desk isn’t that comfortable for me at all. She’s about a foot shorter than I.
                            Suppose I could take a chance on another eBay refurbishment, this one was and lasted 4 years.
                            Ugh...
                            Yup, it is doing boot loops and none of the fixes are working.

                              I back up old school. to a CD/RW every week and then every month to a CR-R. Stacks of disks but I know I can't lose much.
