I'm in the process of a run-up test on the P-51B G&C 4250-540 motor to check it & the prop, for balance & performance. The P-51D BBD has the same 540 motor. I have the numbers posted on the test I did on the BBD "FMS V7.5 P-51 BBD: The 540 Power Plant!" if you want to check it out.

Here are a couple of quick pics I just shot showing both batteries in the P-51B.

I have 3 5s 4000s without a home and an 85 amp esc, plus a 50 dollar credit at BH.

Now I just need the plane to be in stock.

I really like the new planes FMS is churning out!

Just pulled the trigger on the dallas darling. Cant wait to build her up. Anyone have any rubbing issues with the motor? I want to use this on 5s if possible.

Keep in mind, those numbers were in conjunction with the 1mm prop mod.

I got mine from Raymond at RC Castle. The shipping came out to $68 since I also ordered some other parts along with it. TBH, rc castle is about $5 more total if you were to order the P-51B from instead of Philip. I prefer to order from philip, but sadly he was already out of stock of the DD.

The 1mm zip tie prop mod which increases the blade pitch to 10 +-. I covered all the info on my "FMS V7.5 P-51 BBD: Dyno Tuning the Prop!" pg.

I just finished the same mod on the P-51B, but I'm not ready to post that page yet.
