Ground clearance survey (no voting required :) )

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I'm currently building a TF 60-size corsair that I'm putting an rcv90sp in. I've got the engine bench-run but want to put it into a used "beater" to run it in flight.

My concern is ground clearance. This engine uses an 18" prop and I need a plane that will give me 10" ground clearance.

Those people with 60 size planes, I was wondering if you might do me a favour when you have a minute.

With the plane (thrust line) level, would you measure from the centre engine shaft to the ground and let me know

1)make/model of plane
2)how many inches from shaft centre to ground.
3)type of gear (standard or "slightly taller" and fixed or retracts)

Your contributions will help me in my search (unless someone knows of a website that provides such information).

A thousand thanks in advance

This might sound off , but pick the aircraft of youre choice and modify the gear to suit youre purpose .

Of coarse I mean used aircraft

and that might be the easiest way of all, just put taller gear on. Now why didn't I think of that
