I want to know the exact clearance before I purchase it, so I can see what size prop I can fit on it. Why? I want to use a large prop on 3S for more of a scale speed and because I have dozens of 3S batteries. I do this often with good results but I don't want to buy this if I can't run a larger / slower prop. Thanks!
I don't have it here with me at the moment, but will get that measurement for u,
I'm pretty sure though that it's got enough clearance to run a larger prop for a 3cell to give it plenty of power to fly it.

well this one is no where near as capable of doing the "aggressive aerobics" or 3D as the Peaks is. Tumbles, Water Falls, Blenders,Flat Spins, Hovering, etc... that the Peaks can do this one will not do

This Waco is more of a sport type flying plane and a very good one at that

Test flew buddies Waco today......flies nice and stable and MUCH more docile than my Peaks. They have a really nice airplane except for the plastic yellow wing strut mounts......they break very easily....the peaks and devil are carbon fiber.....these are soft plastic.

Interesting....I've been putting my Waco through the aerobatic ringer and haven't had any issues with the strut mounts. I'll continue to keep an eye on them.

Thanks,
Tony
