Sorry that you had a crash on maiden. But as I'm sure you will told here, the P-51 is not a beginners low wing trainer, no matter what the hype is. For a first low wing acrobatic plane, I highly recommend the Goldberg Tiger 400 (change the motor to a e-flite 400 or 450, the stock setup is destined for failure). Put the P-51 in the shelf for a few weeks.

Joe - the blue motor would account for the low speed but is probably necessary for the draggy 4-blade prop. Since a Mustang lives for speed, I think performance will have to trump aesthetics.
