Re: clearance

Paul Fisher

(...yawn...) Ok, I'm awake now, my bad.

I've got a 60"x68" prop on mine and have no problems with ground clearance.  I haven't measured it with the fuselage level.  I'll try to do that next time I'm at the hangar.  It's too cold and snowy to do anything else!

I take off and land at ground attack angle (all three wheels depart and land simultaneously).  I do not do wheel landings.  If the tail wheel doesn't touch down with the mains, I'm going way too fast.  Not to say I haven't done it, but I immediately know I screwed up!

Your milage may vary, but that's how I've been flying it all these years.
