Bhcnomo,
Nice flight.
I bet ya if you upgrade to a Park 480 motor with beefer diameter wire struts and maybe the larger Du-Bro diamond wheels, you will have no problems flying off the grass. Check out page #11. I used the E-Flite Texan 25e struts on a small AT-6 Texan, which is the same size as your Mustang, and I included the Du-Bro 2-1/2" Diamond Lite wheels. No problems taking off on the grass now. Just rate the struts as far forward as possible like that of the H-9 Mustang MKII PTS. Yes, not scale, but this set up seems to work for these little airplanes!
