Awesome FlyBy looking forward to it I myself will throw up some pics of the landing gear mod I'm doing I lengthened the gears by about 3/4 of an inch (used the Dynam 109 legs and Dynam metal trunnion retracts)

Well some more of my project stang parts are here. Slowly working on getting her together here are some details that I am working on.....Still getting exhuast correct...I didnt do a goodjob on the painting of these...working night shift seems to kill a person very slowly...lol
I am still cleaning up the vents but take note they will function to keep the motor and esc cool as well. I am also planning on drilling holes in the exhaust pipes and they will function (the first 3 on each side will) to keep motor cool.

P51Flyby, great idea on using the exhaust pipes for motor vents, that will be very cool (pun intended) but really, with that angle is seems like you would get some natural airflow. I like the scale lower vents too.

Hey guys, I have a few question about my Dynam Mustang.
1: I cannot get the damn spinner balanced. If I just bought a new Dubro spinner, will they come balanced. If I do which size is it

2. I upgraded the ESC to 40AMP and I want to use the 4S with it. I think that should be fine with the 40AMP ESC right?

3. If I wanted to switch to a 2 blade prop which size prop and spinner would be best with the stock plane.

Thanks for helping a noob out.

ok, I did some research and it seems the dubro spinner 3 blade would be the way to go, I can use the same prop (factory) with 3s and 4s. My only question now is which size spinner do I get? Is it a 3"?

The Dubro 3" works good. Don't waste your time and energy on the stock spinner. Never flew it with 3s, but does good on 4s. You may also want to do a gear rake mod to reduce the nose over tendency. If you go to the Dynam FW 190 thread and find post #635 by jmpdgs it describes a very good way to do a gear mod. I used his method on this P-51 and it works great, along with some 2.75" Great Planes wheels.

Sweet. So I bought the dubro but they didnt have yellow...so I decided to paint the cowl. I also added some vents with aluminum from a coke can. Im going to touch up the paint but let me know what you think! The vents are functional as I drilled out the area behind it to get more heat dissipation to the esc
