    Avid with a turbo prop?
    So I see 100 hp and 120 hp small turboprops.
    Throw cost out the window, as that is a non issue.
    My 4 has the big tanks. 28 gallons I think. So I could stay up for a while.

    Wow!!! Any update? You live out in the middle of no where like me looks like! My house is too close to the highway... So I am thinking of building another house 250 yards or so back and tearing down this one. Oh, one thing that is cool is my property is at least 3,500' long... And leveled and flat.

    My tail wheel teething was done in a Citabria... No flaps and a worn out motor...Hot summers in Louisiana. My instructor said do a power on stall... It never broke. I was just holding it there using all of the control surfaces... He screamed, "You have it stalled, WTF are  you doing?" 
    I was used to 150s and 152s... They would break... And you'd  roll over....
    What are the 3 rules? Airspeed, fuel, and fuel?

    700K is a good deal? Seriously, I thought it would be a lot more! I wonder what the cost to fly would be for 100hrs? BTW it has been cold, wet, and SUCKY weather. Winter boredom has set in. LOL!

    I have one of those old ceramic ones with a single light bulb! It belonged to my BigMama! That is as high tech as I am going to get!

    I thought the wide gear was much wider than 3"? Like 12"

    Bud, who owns East Coast Powder and Ceramic Coating says:
    Spec calls for .0005 to .001. But can be built up to as much as .003.

    You'd have to mod the oil system. I think on some motors part of the down housing is the "oil pan". Plus it needs a gear drive. They turn 5-6k at wide open.
    I used to wrench on outboards in the early 80s and now on my own stuff. Thought about putting a V4 OMC on a plane, but gear drive, cooling system, etc. It would be  a war horse though at 115 hp. I don't want to even think about my 280hp Merc!!!

    I have a friend that does it. I will ask him how thick it is. It can't be much.
