Just contemplating engine choices. An O-200 I believe requires quite a large prop diameter. Are there three (or four) blade options that would reduce this while maintaining the general efficiency of a long two blade?
You can make the prop shorter or the gear legs longer. I'd suggest longer legs if building a 2s. 28 inch legs rather than the standard 24 inch Diehl legs should work. Marty Roberts used a 60" prop on a standard KR but had to be very careful of a prop strike. Jeff Scott and I are running 30 inch legs (mine cut to 29") but we have stretched fuselages, mine is 24"s longer than standard KR. I have at least 9"s of prop clearance with a 60" prop. I'm thinking Mike Sylvester has long prop with shorter legs.
The fix for Yahoo mail I posted earlier apparently does not work. I found the above e-mail in my spam folder. I will no longer capitalize yahoo and only spell it with 4 letters. Your guess.........
