Still hanging in my roof man. No time. First concentrating on the business at hand. I have in the meantime started to work seriously on a wing design and have been doing some analysing and playing with different types etc etc.

At the moment I am downscaling the project to be able to use the Verner 9 Cyl 165 hp Radial engine.

That's OK, as long as it's not dead. Ever thought of hanging two engines off the nose? 2×150hp soob sounds good or 2x150hp uav turboprop?

I did but canned the plan. You now need a twin rating etc. Costs goes up, weight goes up and so it never ends. I want a Bushplane
