Prop dimensions


Recommended Posts

Dear all the question has surely been asked before (did not find it with the search function).

What is the best (max) prop dimension usable in a VE.

The VE & LE POH state 58 inch but it seems that most people have larger props (my Long, which I did not build has a 62inch Prop).

Now is the 58inch limit due to ground clearence or more to the max rev. Rutan wanted to run his prop??
