We flew the P-51 mustang with an E-Flite power 10, 30 Amp esc, T-28 prop and a 2200mAh 3s Thunder Power battery. Speeds were 97mph in a 45-50 degree dive. The plane still handled great and would not tip stall power off with full up elevator. Landing speeds were a little bit higher but still very predictable. Vertical performance was great. Maybe 3-4mph faster than the F4U (with same setup) in level flight and it would pull away from the F4U easily while going vertical.
While this is NOT a recommended setup (will void warranty)!! We knew that you guys would be pushing the speed on this plane and wanted to test to make sure there would not be any issues.
