Hi guys, I'm new to RC Groups, but recently picked up a Hobby King P38 at our club auction for $20!! Great looking airplane, but some poor quality hardware installed which I figured could be easily fixed. Tried taxing on grass and the nose wheel collapsed, but no damage. I then tried strengthening the retract unit but really there is not much that can be done, so I had some small Robart mechanical lying around from a small balsa P51 that became "rekitted" when I pushed instead of pulling!! I also replaced the retract servo with a small digital metal gear type that only cost $7. Fitting the spruce retract mounts and the servo did not take long using hot glue. I used the existing strut but drilled it out to accept the 1/8th inch leg that fits into the Robart. The leg is also one inch longer which gives the model a scale nose up attitude. It can now take-off from a normal grass oval and I get great performance using 2400 3s LiPo, with 10 min flights.

Aussie1au...the thread for the JPower/HK P38 is here:

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1128276

This is the thread for the FMS P38, a different model entirely...you'll find lots of info in the other thread about the JPower.

I would guess WOT speed on a fresh 4S charge would be around 70-75...

That's where I'd put it too.
Remember though, that additional power in aircraft primarily affects climb rate, not speed.
So if it gains considerable speed just imagine how it affects climb rate
