Was able to figure out the clearance problems of the prop clearing the floats without re-designing the landing gear; all I am going to do is place a ½ to ¾ inch platform between the fuse bottom and gear! Presto problem solved.
However I never thought about the problem of using a wooden prop, it would probably get chewed up pretty badly.
I really like wooden props, particularly Xoars, however now that you guys mention it proably better to go with a nylon APC.
Basically happy with the progress I made this weekend the wood parts count is getting pretty low. I think about one more week I can start the finishing process. I hope.
