Default Horizontal prop

I'm building my third Diamond Dust (guess what happened to the other two!). Since there is no landing gear, how do I set the prop to insure that when I land after flying out the tank of fuel that the prop will be horizontal. Should the prop be at full compression (top dead center)?

thanks,

Default Try this...

Run the engine to get it up to temp, then set the prop where it is horizontal when the compression stroke is just starting, ie the exhaust port is just closed.
