I was having fun during my lunch break with my P-51 today and everything was going fine. I got one flight in on my plane and landed it no problem.

I decided to let my more experienced coworker take it up and he was doing some very mild aerobatic flying with it when all of the sudden... the motor ripped away from the plane. The force that it ripped away with was enough to unplug the battery leaving him with no control.

The reason I say this is that I feel that the firewall is not sufficiently attached for the amount of torque that the motor can put out. Has anyone else experienced this?
