wow, that's a wild subject. I am suprised how high the prop is, much higher that I would think it needs to be for clearance. Be carefull flying it as the high thrust line will cause pitch changes when thrust changes. I noticed that the orig used an engine in the front to push air under the wing for takeoff which probably helped counter the pitch change.
