I have done a static thrust test of GWS 5030 prop on the P51 with stock motor. 210g thrust for 5.13A, so much better than stock prop (210g for 10.5A - ridiculous amp draw).
I havent flown it yet, I have been fiddling trying to install a GWS 5043 prop into a nose cone, and a few other bits. What I can say is that with only a 5A draw I got a 325mah battery which slides right up behind the motor and appears to acheive the reccomended cog with no extra weight added. we will see if that works.
with only 5A draw I could have even gone with a lighter esc and lost 4~5g of weight.
