The 1100Kv works great with the Trojan prop.

I use the 810Kv in my PZ Corsair with a 4 blade prop.

+1 and that is what I now use on all the Parkzone planes. Here is a picture of what the Corsair looked like the day after the maiden flight. Good thing my pre-flight check caught it. The glue on the stock tape had completely let go after less than 24 hours, and an in-flight disaster was narrowly avoided. I didn't just slap that tape on there, but applied it carefully and pressed it down.

To answer your question about the popularity of the P51 and if there was ever anything as popular...the answer is yes. One is the Radian (not Pro) and another is the Corsair.

Buster....No data on 4S...I like to use a 10X9 4 blade prop and 4S would put the amp draw way over the motors capabilities.

It's an 11X9 apc 4 blade glo prop, that I cut the diameter down to 10". I cut it down to lessen the amp draw and raise the rpms a bit....

If I had to do it all over again, I would probably use the Durafly P-51 4 blade from hobbyking....it's the right size and looks so much better...just not as durable.

May I suggest a 9.5 x 7.5 prop more commonly known as a T28 prop. It is awesome with either the stock motor or the Power 10. The 9x6 pales in comparison.
Pennies mean nothing when using electronic payment.

Both planes are great candidates for upgrades. I have power 10's in both model types. Flaps and retracts on one P-51.
+1. I've got both and I alternate between them. My mustang is souped up for speed and unlimited vertical while my Wildcat is stock except for a T28 prop and higher-C batteries. The mustang is fast an maneuverable while the wildcat is more relaxing and floaty on landing. Both are really well behaved have a gentle stall.

You can get the prop decals from Callie. They make that APC prop really acceptable. I have it.

Read the Gunfighter Mod forum.


This was my first one. Since then I use servoless retracts. Cheap Chinese ones that will fit better.

I use the Eflite 10-15 retracts. I installed them right where the panel lines are for the retracts on the bottom of the wing. I cut the foam out for the retract mechanism to within 1/16" of the top surface to make them almost flush when retracted. I epoxied the inside with ply mounting pieces. On the top of the wing I place a plastic panel over the retract to reinforce the surface. The wheel cutouts are right about 2" and I use foam wheels off of the HZ Super Cub. The cutout of the wheels touch on the fiberglass wing spar. I added a CF spar in the wing.

I also added flaps and a Power 10. It's been repainted in a Korean war tribute scheme. I've enjoyed flying the plane since 2010.

How does it fly with the added weight of those retracts? I want to put retracts on mine as well. I'm just worried about too much weight and it making the plane "fly heavy".

Actually, the added wing loading makes it fly more like a full size with a Power 10.

I highly recommend adding the flaps also since, being heavier, the model has a higher landing speed with out flaps. With flaps the plane will easily do 3 pointers with practice and a smidge of headwind.

Here's a link to the whole wing mod.
