Sweet! I did my multi/IFR training in one, back in the 80's. Still see them buzzing around almost daily here.

Progress with the design but come to a standstill with the landing gear. do not get a landing gear from inside the wings.

This looks like it will be a really nice model.

These electric retracts are 21mm.

These are 18.8 grams and say they are 21mm, but the ones I have measure 20 mm deep.
