Very nice post, David, your Cherokee is very nice and beautifully displayed. I can't help but think, if you like the Cherokee, that you wouldn't like the CLS Arrow II. The Arrow II was piper's attempt to create a retractable, four place plane, and they used the Cherokee as the base. Several years ago, CLS (Commercial Level Simulations) modeled the Arrow II and made it available as a payware plane. The plane was less than a success due to poorly modeled flight characteristics. However, the basics (the eye-candy) was very well done. The CLS payware plane was a bust, and eventually they made it available for $0.00. Since it was marketed at zero cost, a very capable guy (Tiger1962) went to work on a fix and not only nailed the performance characteristics, but added elements that Piper had included that CLS had not. The free version of the CLS Arrow II patched with the Tiger1962 fix is a great airplane. If you like the Cherokee, you'll love the early Arrow... and the price is right! I did a review which was posted on this site almost a year ago (https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/showthread.php?295828-Finally-my-Arrow-II&highlight=cls+arrow). The review includes all the ingredients you need to add a very respectable Arrow II to your hangar. Good luck!
