With the data from the G3X, I created the following plots.
This is one with the aircraft in the hangar. I simply pushed the tail down to within about 1/2" of the floor and returned it (no tail tie-down eye in place):
This data is during several seconds of the landing phase:
Discussion: I made special note of forward visibility just at the point of touchdown. I'm 72" tall, 34" inseam, Bose headset maybe 1" from the canopy. Just before touchdown, I lost the horizon (head not tipped up), and my eyes immediately went perhaps 20 degrees left for the next couple seconds. The pitch angle was almost 9 degrees. Note that this is about 5 degrees away from tail striking, assuming no landing gear deflection
. Note also that the stall warning was not going off.
I believe a firm, full stall landing in the 6A could put the tail within striking distance of the ground.
