Peck Polymer P-51 with PZUM T-28/P-51 Guts

Anyone successfully transfer the guts from the Parkzone UM T-28 or P-51 into one of these peanut scale Peck Polymer Planes?

I don't feel like repairing the wing & fuse of my PZUM T-28, but the electronics are still good.

They are around a 13"wing span and designed to fly with rubber band power.

I have never built a balsa/covering plane and the $20 price tag on the kit is attractive.

I think your stuff is too heavy for this little and fragile airframe. I'm building the druine turbulent from Peck Polymer, and you have to use actuators, geared coreless motors and a deltang Rx. 20$ for the kit but at least 130 for the electronic !

OK maybe the walnut size (16-18" WS) balsa & tissue models are the way to go?

it's my second project: a FW 190 from blue bottle squadron. Motor: AP03 1S, ESC from MPS, servo 1,3 Gr, Battery 1s 240 mAh, and a deltang for the Rx but you can, with this scale, use a PZ brick . For a wallnut, I think that the good weight would be 35-40 Gr in order to get good flying
