Here is mine, 100+ flight's on it and counting. Great looking plane!
We had been discussing mod's on the Strega thread and Critical Mass thread.
Mine has the following mods:

14grams of weight added to the nose (If flying with a 4S 3300mAh pack)
Great Planes 2.5" spinner
APC 10X10E prop (you will have to enlarge the holes on the Great Planes spinner for the prop to fit, quick fix with an Exacto knife or other sharp blade)
Bigfoot Tacon 10 1100kv motor (drops right in with the supplied motor mount, no need for flipping the shaft the supplied prop adapter will fit, it will be a close fit but it will work)
Castle Creations Lite Ice 100Amp ESC (Be sure to set your ECS timing to LOW so you don't roast your motor. You can also add a hard stop on the motor if your landing on grass not to pop your prop)
Thunder Power 4S 3300mAh battery
Painted tail, wing tips and canopy.
Extreme 3M packing tape added to the ailerons and elevator to keep them in place.

A 70Amp ESC will also work with the Tacon 10/APC 10x10/4S combo.

That'a boy. This plane needed it's own thread simply for ease of search for new owners and because the Voodoo is one of the best pai t schemes on the planet .

In your description, just so nobody gets tripped up, you may want to change the spinner description to Great Planes instead of Dubro. It looks like you have the GP with aluminum backplate.

Right on! Voodoo needed it's own place indeed and your right it was a GP spinner. My bad!

I'm going to take some Amp and Watt readings this weekend . If I'm lucky maybe some will bring a radar gun this weekend to the field so I can get some speed readings as well.

I'll do the same man, and we'll compare to make sure we're as accurate as we can be.

Same P51 airframe as the Strega, there is a lot of information in that thread: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1980910

Do what you must, but I don't see multiple threads for different paint schemes on other birds.

+1
There is two threads for the big 1875mm B-17. One for the OD Green Memphis Belle and one for the Silver Liberty Belle.
It is a pain in the rear!!
Guys will post the same question in both threads, yet they only get answers on the Memphis Belle thread. Then they have another question and post it on both threads, again getting multiple answers on the M B thread.
So the Liberty belle thread is nothing but unanswered questions.
Plus this one has been started buy a plane that is not even stock from the get go.
So someone finds the thread reads the first couple of posts and thinks that the plane will be no good in stock form!!
And it was also discussed in the Strega thread to keep it there!

LURCH

This thread can be a Voodoo/Strega/F2/Critical Mass modification thread instead if the original poster agrees. Since they all have the same motor, it's an easy source for modders to look at various setups that people have used.

Has anyone gotten a clear radar gun reading on the stock 4S setup? I have read loads of bs and conjecture about how fast this and the Strega are, but have seen no solid number.

Personally, I like the idea to have this as a modders type thread . See you guys doing lots of easy great mods here and I can find them quickly if I decide to try them. Much better than trying to find them in the orignal threads
