1) Distance from propeller shaft to the ground = 1045mm (on my 601)
2) Do you use a nose wheel spacer?  No, but don't know if I will need to.

3) What is your propeller diameter?  3-blade 68".  Blade measures 814mm, but is still in the shipping plastic.  I'm a ways from installing it, so I don't know what the ground clearance will be at this time.

Hi Franz.  5 years ago today for your First Flight.  Happy Anniversary!

Tell Jan that I said "hello" when you visit him.  I should have my new Viking engine running shortly...
