Default H9 Funtana ground clearance and servos

I am putting a Saito 91 on my H9 Funtana. Is there enough ground clearance with the stock gear for 15" props? I'll probably try APC 15x4w. I suppose a 14x6 would work as well for increased ground clearance. I see people buying carbon fiber gear but is this necessary? Also will Hitec 475 servos be enough in this plane? They are 76 oz at 6v with a top ball bearing. The nice thing about these is they are cheap too.

Thanks for any info.

Chris,
The 15" prop will clear with the stock gear. I run a Saito 100 in mine and have found the 14x6 to work well with this motor on this plane and gives me that bit of extra clearance. Hope this helps.
