i have a hangar 9 p47 and I put in an O.S. 75 two stroke and it flies fantastic. Iv seen one fly on a .91 and it flies great. In my opinion anymore than a 100 saito would be overkill....yeah i know a 2 stroke isnt right in a warbird but lets face it. a 4 stroke doesnt sound like a big radial either

I just orderd the hangar 9 Blue nose P-51 this morning cant wait to get it, but I going elec set-up as all my other planes are elec. I have been flying balsa 3d planes froms 3DHS and I have had a Dynam foam P-51 that flew pretty nice, till I tired doing a loop to close to the ground (forgot I switched back to low rates)
Anything special that I should look out for with this project that someone knows of?

re the H9 P-51 Blue Nose

hi, I had one of these, the kit left a lot to be desired, but it flew well, they come out a bit on the heavy side, the recommended throws are rediculous / deadly,
have a look at this forum, http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_86..._1/key_/tm.htm
just a bit of light reading for you,
NOT a beginner War Bird Model.
Oldtimer.

The World Model .60 size blue nose Mustang is the best flying ARF in it's class.

Those who have flown them all have said this to me at the field as I fueled mine up.

hi, I found the model to be extreamely sensitive on elevators, from memory I had had less than 1/2 and inch up travell and that was nearly too much, the undercart needs to be tilted forward, (put a pop stick under the back) that helps with the nose over problem, and move the CofG forward, I am pretty sure all that info is in the other thread, as I said, mine was nice to fly, (120 f/s), it died, my fault, I now have the ESM P-51B, another nightmare setup story.
cheers, Oldtimer

OT, I have looked at that ESM 51B more than once on a cold and lonely night.... What is it about the model makes you say it's a nightmarish set up?
I have an ESM 47 waiting in the box.....

g'day, the ESM P-51, the major problem is the CofG, the book recommends 158mm, this is a fatal measurement, try 120, that is what I am flying at, then you should be right. but keep the elevator rates down, I fly at about 10mm up travel. go for a 30 cc gas engine.

the P-47 is a magic bird, I have had one for a few years, love it. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_94..._1/key_/tm.htm
there are several threads on both models, both fly very well once sorted, the 47 is the nicer of the 2.... Oldtimer
