Re: clearance

Caveat: this doesn't apply to experimental. But it's the standard for certified and fully aligns with what most people seem to think is prudent. You are the ultimate decider though.

(...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.
