Default Great planes F14 conversion to Pusher?

ANy one out there convert the GP F14 to a pusher configaration . Mine is all framed up and I am thinking of making a change and moving the engine to the rear .
I have not add the rear flying servaces so the work should be easy . I guess my concern is prop clearance with an 0s91 2 stroke .

Prop clearance? Just hand launch it.

you got it... prop strikes are a problem.

Would result in massively long landing gear to get you any margin for take off and landing angles.

Otherwise.... probably no issue trying it. Easy enough to relocate most of the radio gear up in the nose.... though might be a tight fit.

I know most pushers I have seen are three bladed props , I think theres an F18 floating around in kit form , forget the name but it has an all glass fuse .
I just hate the look of the large engine on the front of this plane , I am asking for major troubles ?
