I'm looking forward to seeing exactly what kind of motor is in the P-51. Although the four blade prop looks great, I think the harsh reality of model flight will relegate it to occasional use. As you said, two blade props are the most efficient for speed . But as I think about it, the motor must have some guts - four blade props have a lot of drag. I'll be testing it with an Eagle Tree mini data logger - a great tool for finding out EXACTLY what is going on in flight.
