Hi ffr2608

 Thanks for the reply BUT could you tell me the actual size of a 1/18 and 1/16 PIBER?

George: 
Rough calculations for the MK2....
31 foot = 372 inches    (31x12"=372")

372 inches divided by 18= 20.6   inches long for the 1/18 MK2     7 inch beam
372 inches divided by 16= 23.25 inches long for the 1/16 MK2     7.8 inch beam

 Hello ffr2608

 Hello Again

 Reg. your Piber MKII build, could you please tell me your source for the 3D printed jet drive ports? I want to do the same thing and use two propeller, two rudder system like you did.

 Thanks Again for ALL your posting for this build and help.
