    I have a fleet of Bidule 111's (2 flying, one kit in reserve in my shop) that tow really well given they are speedy. I'm essentially going to be more 911 in my towing and less Cayenne. If the 170 doesn't find a home at this insanely good price, I'm more than happy to campaign it in 2019. The 170's are amazing tow planes!

    Plus, I just took delivery of a 1:3 Foka, have a new Antares inbound and am somewhere on the ASH-31 list. Need to make some room in the shop!
